London City is pleased to announce the launch of Freebie Megastore.
This colossal store will be on three levels and will contain over a thousand Free items including, clothing, accessories, vehicles, scripts, furnishings, buildings, club equipment and other great products .. all completely free of charge.
It has always been our guiding belief that London City Estate should be totally self sufficient and that it evolves and grows only as demand and revenues dictate.
Our balance sheet shows that we have the long term ability to devote a significant portion of London City3 region to non-revenue generating purposes, and we have chosen to focus on a one-stop Freebie Store.
Of course, sourcing all the products we want to bring you is very time consuming and this will be a continuing project, but we hope you will visit us regularly and grab the latest products.
Thanks to our 135 merchants, we have managed to obtain many exclusive items which are not available anywhere else on the grid. We believe that obtaining bespoke goods will place Freebie Megastore at the heart of the Second Life community.
Currently we have 400 items on offer and we aim to add another 50 new items each week.
If you are a merchant or reseller and would like to contribute to Freebie Megastore, please get in touch, we would love to feature your creations.

Hey London City, How's it going?
Time to put your feet up with a nice cuppa and relax, as I tell you about the fantastic time we had over the weekend in the number one destination in SL, London City.
Here in London City, we strive to bring you unique idea's and full on entertainment second to none.
We have a great team of dedicated staff, form Support and greeters, club hosts and Dj's right through to management, all with one goal in mind, to bring you the best virtual experience and fun in Second Life.
Each Saturday, the staff bring you a fantastic concert in Regents Park, where special guests take to the stage and entertain the masses that teleport in for this awesome event, it's always good to arrive early as the event fills quickly.
This week we saw the famous duo, Simon and Garfunkel.
An american music duo, singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel, both born in 1941.
They started their singing career as Tom and Jerry, they had a minor hit in 1957, but Simon and Garfunkel rose to fame in 1965, on the strength of their hit "Sound Of Silence".
Known for their superb harmonies, London City sang along with some of their huge songs such as "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "I Am A Rock", "Mrs Robinson", and one of their best know "Bright Eyes" form the film Watership Down. (not a dry eye in the place )
Everyone loved singing along with the songs they know and love.
Tension ran high between this duo, with them breaking up and reforming several times.
The last reunion they played in Central Park, New York in 1981, they played to a 500,000 strong crowd.
Along side the fantastic concert, we ran a best in 60's event where a lucky resident could win a huge amount of Lindens. What a hoot, everyone had a thoroughly awesome time.
On Sunday, we joined the gang at Comptons Pub, one of the oldest Pubs in London.
Here is a relaxed atmosphere, and chilled, this week we saw Nat King Cole tinkle the ivories and swoon the crowd, with his soft creamy tones.
Comptons is a place you can meet friends, hang out and join in the fun.
Well that's all from me this week, I'll see you next time for more fun and frolics in London City.... Number 1 destination in SL.... accept no imitations.

Compton's Pub in London City is most definitely the place to be on a Sunday evening.
It is the best place to catch up with others and find out all the gossip that has happened over the course of the weekend.
With Live Acts, tribute performances and a fun and friendly crowd, its little wonder that Compton's is such a popular place to visit!

Round one voting results Good = 71 (47%) Bad = 79 (53%)
We thought we might collect a hundred votes over the course of the weekend, but 150 people voted within the first few hours and our opinion poll is first to 150.
We suspect a bit of skulduggery with the voting system, especially as people were paying others to vote certain ways and teleporting them in to vote!
So the first round of results are inconclusive, except to demonstrate that people have very strong views for and against this ability.
After 150 votes, the voting system stops polling people, so therefore a second round of ballots is required.
Get ready to vote for a second time.

Some strong opinions and everyone is being quite vocal about this one! Click the voting booth and have your say! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/94/233/24

This avatar obviously felt very strongly about something she thinks we have done wrong.
Strongly enough to create a rather good sign about it. Unfortunately when I IM'd her she would not comment about it, so it's impossible to say if there is any merit in her billboard.
Would it be bitchy for me to say, thanks for the advert and to point out that wearing a billboard about it smacks of being a drama queen? :)
Come visit her now in London City3
Need something positively jaw dropping for a seductive night out on the town?
Look no further than the Latex Station in London City3, with a huge selection of female latex and pvc style clothing available in prim and mesh.

Oh what fun we had on Sunday at Comptons Pub.
Superb live act Coffee Jarrowerer sang for a full hour, an eclectic mix of songs and performed his own music with his guitar and harmonica. A truly superb star turn.
The event was our first traditional Knees-Up at Comptons and featured Chas and Dave, Mrs Mills and Florrie Forde, singing the original pub songs, which visitors sang along and helped themselves to Pie and Mash and delicious Jellied Eels!
The music was great, the beer was flowing and what a way to spend a Sunday, down at the old bull and bush aka Compton's.
What a weekend!
That special buzz was in the air.. Tingly, electric.... people arriving ready for a fantastic night of entertainment ...as is our way in London City, we bring you the best Second Life has to offer.
This weekend was no exception, one of the favourites, "Last Night Of The Proms".
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra took to the stage, Beautifully dressed and with an array of classical instruments.
The concert went on for over an hour, everyone loves a good sing-a-long..and the Last Night Of The Proms is the perfect fix.
So what's left to do ? Conga the night away of course!
That's all from me this week, I'll see you next time for more fun and frolics in London City the number 1 destination in SL...accept no imitations

Sunday at Compton's
Live Singer and Musician Coffee Jaworower will be here at 12pm SL
An interesting Bio:
Coffee was born and raised in the forest sims of second life sometimes a brown bear sometimes a a panda/cat/human with spines he spent his early years camping and losing money in the SL gambling dens. Whilst listening to the many fine performers that toured the clubs he dreamed that someday he would be up on the stage. During this period Coffee became addicted to Honey, often taking 5 or six pots a day, but with every pot he consumed his music became sweeter and more enriched .Today Coffee still lives the wildlife blending classic hits from the 60's onwards with more obscure raw sugary tunes played on his acoustic six string with the occasional screech of harmonica.

That's right chums, Take That in Regents Park on Saturday ....can you flippin believe it, yes, they took time out to fly in to London and entertain us for over an hour, with their awesome array of top hit songs.
Take That, an English group, made up of Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, and Mark Owen.
The guys have had 27 top 40 singles in the charts, and 16 top 5 singles, 11 of which reached the number one spot.
Take That went down a storm and they are always number one with London City.
This is the third time the Guys have been to London and every time the concert just gets better.
Robbie Williams sfter leaving the band rejoined in 2010, and they released a new album , it swiftly became the fastest selling album of the 21st century.
Everyone came to boogie with the band singing along to such hits as " Everything Changes " , " Relight My Fire ", "Pray", "Babe" and many many more....
With a custom built stage, ( made by yours truly ) took inspiration from the Circus tour stage.
People flocked in their hundreds, for a great night of fun and dancing...
They got so excited they even rushed the stage ....
The lads are such great sports they didn't mind one bit, and enjoyed the interaction with the fans.
There was also a best in British contest too where residents were invited to turn up with some kind of Union Jack clothing what a hoot!!!
A winner was voted for and that lucky resident won a stash full of Lindens ... Well done them :)
