Weekend Review 22nd - 24th June 2012

Hi there,

Well so much has happened this week in London City, that if i had to describe it with one word, it would be WHOOOOOOOOOOSHHHH!!!

To start with, London City would like to wish Second Life a very Happy 9th Birthday. x

Wow! 9 years and SL, has seen some major changes during that time.
This year the theme was community, something London City excels in.

Building an interpretation of London inSL on a 1024 meter parcel, with a 257 prim limit was tricky, but luckily for us our very own builder extraordinare, Mr Billy Arentire who took up the challenge. (For those of you who aren't builders, that's like trying to fit the whole of London onto a postage stamp).
Billy has taken some of the wonderful sites in London City, and recreated them to fit perfectly, with an eye for detail and wonderful Realistic HD textures, Billy has done us proud yet again.

Why not pop along and see for yourself, but hurry, it ends on 27th June!

Friday 22nd June 2012

This week my featured club is Substation, one of the newest clubs in London City, it has already carved a niche with it's quirky 1960's feel. It's the kind of place your Mum and Dad would have gone to. What a giggle, I went along this Friday to the "Best in Police" night, with host Coffee Queen , keeping the crowd lively, and Dj Bailey playing the tunes, it was a real mixture of fun and laughter.

Then on to Bar Soho, for dancing and chatting.

Club manager Wil Youngblood has  installed a " Guess the Lyric" machine. It gets everybody talking and furiously trying to get the right word, its so much fun ...and very, very addictive!

To close the night, we went on to Madame Lala's, always fun and friendly with a twist of wit. This place is a real good night out.  Friday saw DJ Fierce spinning the funkiest  tunes in London, this week was "best in Formal" and everyone turned out in their finest.. Who would have thought we would all scrub up so well !!

Saturday 23rd June 2012

Saturdays always sees a special guest on an especially built stage. The performers usually play to a jam packed Sim, so full in fact, people quite literally queue to get in and this weekend was no exception!

Glen Campbell's Goodbye concert.
Everyone came along in their "best in cowboy" outfits yeeeehaaaaa!! and partied right into the night, dancing and singing along with Glen.

Glen Campbell's career spans over 50 years. He is perhaps one of the best known country singers of all time, with hits like Gentle On My Mind, Galveston, Wichita Lineman, By The Time I Get To Phoenix and Rhinestone Cowboy.
Last year he announced that after many years suffering from short term memory loss, which was  the effects of Alzheimers's disease, that sadly his ability to perform and record music was coming to an end.
Throughout 2012, Glen has decided to do a worldwide Goodbye tour for all his adoring fans, to enjoy his music one last time. It is amazing to hear how he puts his heart and soul into every performance,
 a true great that will be sadly missed.

Then just time to hot-foot it over to Lezbo, all this week saw Lezbo, which is a themed club, take on best in colours, each night the club is transformed into a new exciting scenario.

Yes, that is Yoda !! :P]

Sunday 24th June 2012

We all felt a little worse for wear on Sunday, all that partying can take it out of you, especially dancing singing, drinking and having such fun, but Madame Lala manager Bailey Saxmundham has just the ticket, The Sunday Smooth,
Smooth grooves are played to ease us back into the land of the living, if you like your tunes mellow, relaxed and soul full head over to Madame Lala's on a Sunday morning around 11 am.

Sunday afternoon was left for shopping round the fantastic stores we have in London City, plus there is a freebie shop with quality items in that is not to be missed.

So that's it from me for another week in the awesome London City number 1 SL destination, I'll see you in the week for more fun packed frolics.
