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.
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.

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.
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!

London City - The London you can't stop thinking about.

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
