The Fabulous Weekend Review 22nd -24th March

Hello  there London City  peeps, how you doing?
What's  with  this snow? It's like living  in Narnia....

The Sun, anyone remember what  that is? .... I've heard  rumours, it's like a big ball  of  fire  in  the sky.... I wonder  if  we will ever get to see  it ? .... Still all the more reason  to wrap  up warm, login to SL and  join us  in  the number 1 location on  the grid... LONDON CITY yay !!!

So, what can  you expect from virtual  London.... The Hustle and Bustle of a hugely successful sim...People from all  over  the globe...Top Events and  The BEST Entertainment available anywhere... and all for free...London City  IS Second  Life.

Sit back and relax  as  I take  you  on a leisurely tour of  last weekend in  The top Destination.

What ever  your taste  or preference, London City  ( just  like  RL London) truly has  it all...  running  like a well oiled machine, that when  you land here, you will understand  why WE are  top of  the charts  when it comes  to fun and  the best  virtual experience you can  have.

In  London City we love nothing  more than  bringing you new and exciting venues, that cater for everyone, Sunday saw  the opening  of  our  new  lesbian hang-out "Dykes on Bikes" here  the ladies are  invited to come along, with great music and chat, there is even a chance to earn while you enjoy yourself , by dancing  on  the tables...what a hoot.
With a diner feel, its a great place for  like minded  girls to get  together and chill-out.

If you love  your  music, Bar Soho  is  the place to go, teamed with a great atmosphere, friendly people, and London's finest Dj's, its sure to tick all the boxes.

Like saucy Adult fun? .... no problem, get down The Crown, situated in Victoria, one of our adult regions, always busy with people looking for "no strings" action. Hosting some rather riske events daily, its a real  giggle and a must see :).

Not your thing? never fear we have  loads of places  you can Substation.... a place to wind down and relax, playing a mix of retro tunes, and  fun events, found  in Soho, just off the hub.

Or, how about  Juiced, a chameleon club, where  the d├ęcor changes daily for every event, always  one to puss  the boat out, the events are fun and totally different to anywhere else  in Second  Life... another 1st for London City . This week we celebrated  the Spring Equinox, we also  had  the  LCTV cameras  in, for our  strictly dancing  night, plus an urban skateboard park, and  a very relaxing  Japanese Tai chi event.

maybe  you  like  cheeky tongue  in cheek  banter, where great  music is played, look no further  than  Madame  Lala's, open  Friday night and  Sunday where  Bailey plays  the best in easy  listening  to ease  you  into  the day.

or maybe you'd  like to turn you hand to  bingo,  a pub quiz or two at The Worlds End  pub, typical British Pub, a place to call your  local, fun, friendly and totally mad, what more could  need.

Not only ALL that, we host a LIVE  event  in every Saturday, in Regents  Park.

Saturday saw  Rod Stewart  in concert, all concerts are  totally free to attend, but make sure you arrive early as  this event reaches capacity very quickly.

As it did on Saturday, Roderick David "Rod" Stewart, CBE (born 10 January 1945...born and raised in North London.

Rod has a distinctive raspy singing voice, which always woo's the ladies.
Selling over 100 million records worldwide, it makes  him one of the best selling artists of all time.

 So we were  thrilled he joined us  for a wild and fantastic show, we ran a best  in animal print along side where a lucky resident had  the chance to win a huge amount of  linden dollars.

Looking hotter than ever in his signature leopard print tight trousers, Rod wiggled his way through all his top hits.
 He sure  knows  how to  move it, exciting all the ladies  in the audience.
Many offers  of meeting  him later after  the show were hurled around.

Singing a huge array of his hits, Rod took to the stage and entertained us for an hour and a half, everyone singing along to his hits like "Sailing", "Maggie  May", "Do You Think I'm Sexy", "Your're In My Heart" and  many, many  more.

Everyone had a great  time, and  looking forward to  next weeks  concert, we have  The Spice Girls   here  in Regents  Park Easter  Sunday, so be sure to join  us....

That's all from  me  this week, it's been truly a fantabulous week here  in  London  City, I hope to see you around for more fun and frolics xxx

The Fabulous Weekend Review 16th~18th March

Well hello  London  city ...or should  I say  Top o' the mornin to ya, in light  of  the celebrations  that took place  over the weekend ...yes  that's  right ,  we celebrated  St Patrick's  Day. Saint Patrick is celebrated  in Ireland  and  the rest  of  the  U.K, it's generally known  that Patrick  is  the patron saint  of  Ireland  and has  been since around  the 7th century.

17th March  is the date  St  Patrick's day  is celebrated and  thought to be the anniversary  of  his death, so in our usual fashion, we bring   Real  life events into the virtual world, so everyone, no matter where  they are from in the world, can join us and experience a Real London feel, with all venues  and events  joining forces  for  what can only be described as a tremendous weekend.... unparalleled ... You already  know  how  busy London city is  everyday  of the week, but  I can reveal this weekend, we broke our record  of people attending  the sim... even more  than at New  Year, that record  was well and truly smashed ... almost 72 hours of full capacity WOW!!!

 It just goes to show how  popular and awesome  London City  truly  is :)

This phenomenal weekend  was  sponsored by DX Exchange, the easiest way to buy in world currency, with Regional UK HQ in London City.

As usual, Regents  park sprang  into action  on Saturday evening,  the crowds  arrived early which I highly recommend, as it fills  very quickly with our wonderful residents  all wanting a great evening out, and watching  their favourite stars  on stage Live  in concert....As it was St Patrick's weekend who better  than the Dubliners to celebrate... 

The Dubliners  are an  Irish folk band, their career has  spanned  over 50 years and  seen many changes  in the line  up. The band gained  international success for  their lively Irish songs.
The band  were regulars  on the folk scene  in the  60's in both Ireland and  London,  and appeared  on  the iconic  Top of the Pops in '67.

We love having these old boys  perform  in  London City, always drawing a huge  crowd  singing all  the songs we know and  love  "Black Velvet Band", "7 Drunken  Nights" "drunken Sailor", "Wild Rover", "Molly  Malone" and  loads of  others too many to mention. 

The free Green Guinness was flowing, everyone dressed  in Irish clobber...great "drinking " music, fun free jig dances we really did have a whale  of  a time the celebrations  started  earlier than usual due  to  the crowds arriving... and went  on well into  Sunday morning.... There was a "Best  In" event where 1 lucky Resident won a huge amount of  Lindens.

The following day we found some residents having a morning work-out...recovering from  the night before ...

Early Sunday morning, we had a barrage of messages from  Residents  who couldn't get to  the event in Regents park....Upset they missed the celebrations ... so what to do  ??? Put  it on again of course!! This time  the Guys took  to  the Hub  in Sim1... A few choice invites  out  and  BANG the sim was at capacity again...people arriving in droves, in a party mood, ready to sing-a-long again .. twice  the enjoyment ...

All over  London  City,  the whole weekend was given  to celebrating St Patrick's day...All venues participated...

Substation started  us  off, Coffee, Bailey and  Katty invited people to come along  to come dressed  in green... always a hoot here.. fun chat and  golden oldie tunes.

The crown 

Saucy adult your SL to be no strings  fun ... then  the Crown is  right up your street,
 like minded adults great music...what more could  you ask for  :)

As  usual Bailey and  Fierce added extra fabulousness to Madame  Lalas this weekend, tongue in cheek banter and the best  in toe tapping tunes...all go into  the mix to make this one of our most popular destinations...what do you mean  you haven't been  there yet  ???... then you are simply missing  out...

Juiced also joined  in  the celebrations, Saturday we found  the Juiced  team on a road-show  in regents park, inviting  the  Victoria groups along to Soho, this is always a giggle, as we joke  the sim 3ers show  the sim 1ians how to party... we had  so  much  fun Saturday...
Sunday we were back at Juiced,  this time the club was transformed  into  an Irish  hillside  ( complete  with sheep) where we ran a best in green event with  upbeat Irish songs we always have the best  time.

This week we also had  one  of  Our  most popular themes "Alice  in  Wonderland"

I'm always speechless at the time and effort people put into  their costumes, and  I  think Alice  in wonderland  event shows  this off to the max.

The Worlds End and  Soho  also ran  awesome events  with St Patrick's theme....all in all we had  a fantastic time, and  more awesome news,
Loki found photographic evidence  that Spring  is here long  last .....

Well, that's all from me this week, I just want to say  a huge thank you to Everyone who took part  ans came along  to London  City... from our fabulous staff to our awesome Residents you all play a part  in making  London  City  the TOP Destination in Second  Life...FACT!!

Huge hugs to all xxx
