Hey London  City  peeps,  how you doing?
If you  joined  us  for the weekend,  you had another great time, week after week we pull it out the bag and  bring  you  bigger and  better, totally unique and  unparalleled.



Just  how do we do  it... It's a question on peoples  minds constantly .... not only  do  we have  the best  staff, from Friendly greeters, found  in  the  hubs to venue  hosts, Dj's  and  mangers, all our staff are trained and  professional with one goal, to make  your  visit to London  City most enjoyable time ... this is what  keeps  us the  Top  Location  in Second  Life.


At last the weekend  is here, London  is busier  than  ever, party people  looking  for  top fun, and we  gave  it to them in abundance....

Themed  events, Chances to win  Lindens, Great  Music, Live Events.... this  weeks  LIVE  Event in  Regents  Park  had  one  of  SL's  Super Stars and  Friend  on  London City..... ( drum roll)
Adevina Citron .....wooooooo hell yeah!!!!



This lady is awesome, we simply  adore her, awesome  voice, fun, full of banter.... When  Adevina  hits  London, she  hits  hard, and  takes  no  prisoners...





















Taking  Live Requests from the audience, and singing a full and  total mix of  popular  songs, no wonder she  has a dedicated  following, we totally adore  her.



Always  one for a joke  Adevina entertains  us  in many ways, everyone has  an awesome  time.











Looking  gorgeous  dressed  in  red  high waisted pants and stripy
 top, she sang her heart out for over an hour of delicious tunes, in her own interpretation of  well known  hits.




London City, always  fresh and  new, keeping  up to date with  real life  London, using  the latest technology and  ideas,  keeping  us way ahead, and  giving others  something to think about  .... constantly.








My focus this week is  on  Juiced,  a themed  night  club in  Victoria, Sim 3.






Open  5 nights a week, 2:30 pm slt,  the largest club  in London City.


















This is a chameleon  club,  by way  of  changing  the décor daily to suit  the theme, so every night the club transforms  and whisks  you away  to a complete virtual experience, with  themed music to boot.


This week we saw a cool  jazz club, where  guests wore  cocktail attire for a chance to win Lindens.






Sunday  we were taken to  a tropical  coral reef. We all dressed as  an Ocean  creature.



T















All  this  month, London City   brings you  the summer  sun....we are all a bit  tired  of the perpetual winter..and  Juiced  joined  in  with a hot sunny beach.
























Also  in Victoria, you can  find  The Crown  Pub... This is an Adult  Pub, for anyone who likes saucy no strings  fun.... Always  busy, with  tongue  in cheek events and playing great dance music.


Big  things are happening  in  London City so  keep your eyes  peeled, and watch this space...



New  Dykes  on  Bikes club. This club  is especially  for  Lesbians to hang  out,  dance and earn  Lindens





Also  in  London  City  this weekend , Substation, and  The Worlds end kicked  us  off ... exactly what Fridays were made for. Both  totally  Unique and have a huge following  in  their  own  rights.






Bar Soho opens 1pm slt, and Friday  night finds  yours truly playing the best Hardcore  and  Dubstep... Arrive early as  we do get  packed  out.




Madame  Lala's also  had a special guest turn  this  weekend, Dame  Shirley  Bassey, singing a medley of  her  greatest hits, one  of  Madame  Lala's  drinking  buddies Dame Bassey has still got it effortlessly entertaining us all.

Margaret Thatcher



Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher died today aged 87.

She was Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990.

For those who had a few pounds she turned it into a fortune for them.  For those working in the industries she took their few pounds and turned it into pennies for them.

She sold off British Rail, British Telecom, The Electricity Board and all the Council Houses.  If you were in the right place at the right time during the boom years you would love her.   If you were in mining, nursing and many other public industries, you would probably loathe her.

Loved and loathed in equal quantities, Lady Thatcher put the Great back in Britain and for a brief time the UK was once again, at the centre of the world stage.

The marble statue we are exhibiting in London City hit the headlines in 1999 when a vandal used a cricket bat to knock her head off, saying "I think she looks better like that".

A bronze statue of Margaret Thatcher will be placed
in permanent memorium in The Houses Of Parliament in London City 3, where hopefully it will remain contraversial as the great lady herself was.





 
London City - The Houses of Parliament, not out of a box.

London's Lesbian Cafe Opens




As part of the Lifestyles areas in London City, the girls only Cafe, London Dykes on Bikes is now open for business!

As with everything you will see in London City, it is built by us and not just rezzed out of a box,  making London City original!

The malt shopped themed cafe featuring motorbikes and scantily clad waitresses is the new hangout for gay women in London.

Here you will meet others and make friends,  have a drink and dance, perhaps before going on to one of the many themed Nightclubs here in London City.

What's more, female avatars can work here greeting customers and earn tips.  So if you're a bit short of cash or just starting on the SL journey, this is an excellent place to get started!

The Fabulous Easter Weekend Review



Happy Easter to  ALL that Celebrate  it, Happy Weekend to ALL those  who don't... and what a fantastic weekend  we have  had , whatever  your beliefs, as always, we had  a fabulous weekend  in  London  City, Fun ,  Lively and Full On.


With  Easter  holidays  in  RL, London  City  was  busier  than  ever,  brimming with people ready  to  be  entertained, and  never  one  to  fall short,  London  City  sprang  in to  the  party mood, and delivered 110% pure  FUN....





Early on the  Hub  in Soho is  filling  up, friends meeting up, chatting, sharing  stories, If  you want to  meet  people , make  new  friends, we have  2  Hubs in  London  City... Friendly , fun, with all  the best people  in  SL .










Always  busy, London  City  hubs are a  great  place  to meet  up, before  you head  into  town  and  our great venues.



Easter Weekend ,  is always a fun affair  in  London City, We  had  an Easter  Egg hunt, where  all  the Residents  could  hunt around  the sim, clicking  on  the Eggs... some  held  a  nice  surprise, but some exploded making us  jump. giggles all round. It was  eggcellent, and  that's  no  yolk!!! ...groans














...
If egg  hunting  was  too sedate  for  you... how about a race  or  two... remember  the egg and spoon race  when  you were a kid?  you'd  make a mad dash  with  an egg  on a spoon hoping  you  don't  make a n  omelette... well  London  city  style ...you make a dash wearing the egg and spoon... this race always  makes  me  laugh, watching  people waddling around  the sim, I could watch  these  all  day, a couple  of  laps and we have a winner.




We also  have a  tongue  in cheek Annual Crucifix race, where  people  take  to  the streets  and scarper  round  the sim wearing a crucifix as  fast  as  they can manage.
Everyone  loves  these races  and  all  the fun we have.



The right  way  to  hang around  London city.



Retro at  Substation



All weekend, we ran  best in  Easter  style events at  our venues, from Substation, Bar Soho, The  Crown, Madame  Lala's,  The Worlds End, all joining  in  with  the vibe... Juiced gave you a "blank" Easter bonnet to decorate yourself, and  join  an  Easter Bonnet  Parade, what a hoot,  there were some  awesome  Bonnets colourful and  unique.
saucy fun at  The  Crown


Themed  night at  Juiced
















This weekend  also  saw  the Fabulous  SPICE  GIRLS in concert,  it's  the first time  the girls  had  performed  in  Regents  Park, but  WOW!!! what a night 1 word AWESOME...












The  Spice  Girls  for  those  who  don't know... ( I can't  imagine  there's many  who  don't  know ) are an  all girl British pop band, founded  in 1994,  they were given  nicknames which they adopted,  Scary,  Sporty, Baby,  Ginger and  Posh.





They released their  début single "Wannabe" which  hit  the top spot, number 1  in more  than  30 countries. They have  sold  over  80 million records world wide, and became a global phenomenon.













Regents Park was  packed to  the brim, when the  girls  took  to the stage, wearing   their  signature outfits, the girls went down a storm, it was a real  pleasure  having the girls  in  the park, and  I'm sure  they will return  very  soon.







To close  the  Easter  Celebrations, we had a  fantastic  beach party,  fed  up  with the  cold we decided  to bring  London  City  a  little  sunshine,  it was great to get  our swimwear  on and  party to some  Motown.


We all had  a wonderful  Easter weekend  in  the best sim  in SL.

That's all from  me  this week, I'll see  you next time  for  more  fun  and  frolics  in  London  City xx
