Weekend in Review - February 24th to 26th

Well that's another weekend of insanity over with...although that one was even more insane than usual.

Things usually start off with our Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue combo, but there was an early start as a variety of old codgers took to a specially erected (stop giggling) stage in the Hub.  Rolf Harris, the Seekers, Demis Roussos and Peter, Paul and Mary all made appearances during the course of the afternoon.  These were accompanied by various toga, sixties and hippy contests set up to terrify...erm...I mean...thrill the assembled crowd.

We then had a Best in Patriotic contest at Bar Soho - with yours truly in a dress far shorter than I would usually wear - and Best in Glamour at Madame Lala's establishment.

The big news on Saturday was a combination of the big concert - Kylie! - and the Lezbo roadshow for a Best in Punk contest.  The concert featured possibly the biggest stage set to ever be erected (I told you to stop giggling) in Regent's Park.

On Sunday we had our usual weekend wind down at Comptons where the contest was for the Worst Dressed.  This seem far harder to pick than anyone would have imagine from the state of a lot of people in SL...

The final blast of the weekend went as always to Lezbo with a Best in Baggies/Rave contest.  I am not saying things were bright but I think I have lost some colour recognition in at least one eye.

Speaking of eyes, it is time I rested mine!  Be good (and if you can't be good, be careful - or have an alibi).

Weekend in Review - February 17th to 19th

Oooh kiddies, auntie Bailey's feet are throbbing from all that dancing this weekend.

On Friday we ended the week on a high with a Best in Leather/Latex contest at Bar Soho.  Our new Dj, Snakey, took to the decks and provided us with a couple of hours of great music.  We then headed on down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue for an Emmylou Harris tribute concert, which was absolutely fantastic.

It's Emmylou Harris!  Well actually it is an avatar doing a tribute.
On Saturday the concert area Regent's Park was converted to give it a country feel for a special tribute concert featuring none other than Dolly Parton.  Dolly's musical talents overshadow many of her contemporaries and her chest overshadowed the dancers in the park.

The Dolly Parton fan club take to the dance floor...yeehaw!
For entertainment on a Sunday we usually head to Comptons pub, but we had a change and returned to Regent's Park for a Seekers tribute concert to bring our folk fest to an end.  With a Best in Sixties contest, we were not short on colour or (hideous) patterns!

Immediately after the Seekers, we headed across town to Lezbo for a Wacky Outfit contest.  I don't think I have words to describe dancing horses, cupcakes, turkeys, etc. so I will show you a pic instead!

Erm...the punters in Lezbo
Okay, I am off to soak my feet...have a great week and don't forget to visit London City frequently for all your shopping and partying needs!

Weekend in Review - February 10th to 12th

Hello kiddies, it auntie Bailey.  It's that time of the week again...Monday.  Boo!  But at least we had a good weekend in London City.

We started off with a Best In contest at Bar Soho...Best In Spots, Stripes or Checks, in fact.  It provided the patrons with the opportunity to explore their creativity and we saw a range of costumes and avatars.  DJ Torric provided the music and our hostess was Lisa.
The rabble, erm, I mean audience at Bar Soho
Following on from the contest at Bar Soho. it was quick change time and a mad gallop down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue.  As it was the establishment's first birthday, there was a special tribute concert - by Adele.  Not only did she look stunning, she provided us with a fantastic musical treat.
Adele - looking and sounding amazing

 On Saturday we had our usual party in Regent's Park, with the contest theme of Best in Shades.  There were fab tunes and a set by Britt McMahon as Billy Joel.  Some of the London City staff (Lisa, Heather and Coffee) provided support as Mr Joel's band.  As always they were fabulous.

We ended the weekend of with a Best in Slippers event at Comptons and then had a Best in St Trinians at  Lezbo.

London City - The Community in Second Life

London City is the most popular destination in Second Life. Known for its community atmosphere, Parties, Concerts and Shopping, this 3D City is ready to welcome you!

Metaverse statistics for SL puts London City at the Top.

Herewith the official SL statistics for the top 25 regions. 

The Range figure in brackets shows the unique visitors each hour during the monitoring period.   This figure is especially important as it cannot be fudged with bots who inflate traffic and only counts unique (or different) visitors to the region each hour.

You'll see that London City is in 3rd place and the only London in the top 50, knocked off top position by Sexy Nude Beach.  Perhaps our team will have to dispense with clothing next month!

Thank you to all our patrons for making London City such a wonderfully successful community.

Weekend in Review - February 3rd to 5th

Hello luvvies,,,auntie Bailey here with another weekend review.

We started the weekend in somewhat unusual style as we had a different DJ at Bar Soho...DJ Torr.  He streamed live to Bar Soho from Madame Lala's London Revue, before we all pranced and gambolled happily down the street to round the evening off in Madame Lala's establishment itself.

On Saturday we had our Take That tribute in Regent's Park.  Another concert with the sim busting at the seams.  So many knickers were thrown at the stage that it was like working in a launderette.

Take That!  And yes, that is a wombat on drums
Party people shaking their pixels
On Sunday there was an unexpected change to our usual schedule with an early event in Regent's Park.  Cher dropped in for an impromptu concert!  As it was rather short notice, she barely had enough time to dress...but no one noticed the difference.

Cher...or Cher-a-like
Also on Sunday, we had an Irish themed drinkathon at Comptons pub, which helped bring our weekend to a close.

Job Fair in London City

All over the SL, you hear the shout in most every group "I get job in this game????", which is a modern form of job application.

Here in London City, we are always looking for rising stars, but prefer to recruit, the old fashioned way.  As such, we are currently holding a Job Fair, explaining the roles we have available and the ever so handy application form that goes with it.

So.  If you are looking for work, this is a great place to start!
