Weekend in Review - 4-6 November

Auntie Bailey here again after another insane weekend in London City.  A crowded dancefloor at Bar Soho on Friday meant we were all hot and sweaty in our leather and latex gear as we partied our way towards the weekend.  A quick shower and a change of clothing later, the party continued at Madame Lala's London Revue.  Thanks to the new transport system in place, people were able to journey between the two venues without risking their lives aboard Billy's bus - which hopefully reduced the number of skidmarks.

On Saturday morning we all awoke to find that a funfair had arrived in Regent's Park.  A couple of rides and some 'refreshment' vans and stalls had taken position around the main concert area, no doubt as a cunning ploy to tempt drunken revellers from the concerts with their produce.  I was accosted by a couple of guys who tried to tempt me with their meat, but as is always the case in such situations their meat looked a little suspect and they didn't have very big portions.  I would advise pet owners to be sure of the whereabouts of their animals while such vendors are around; though I cannot prove the produce is less than high quality, I for one will certainly be keeping my pussy secure.

On the subject of cats - and other animals - I hope everyone made sure their pets were tucked safely away on Saturday as their was a bonfire and fireworks extravaganza in Regent's Park.  Numbers were consistently in the upper 90s, with the sim maxed out for a large part of the evening.  An additional draw came as the result of the weekend's big concert, which featured pert and perky pop princess Kylie on stage in her famous gold hotpants.

Not content with drawing huge crowds on Saturday, Sunday continued in a similar manner with the first signs of winter creeping in to London City with the arrival of the ice skating rink.  Comptons pub later played host to Elvis - in the shape of Helvis Xue who treated to the assembled masses with a selection of hits made famous by Mr Presley and some interpretations of other songs in the style of Elvis.
