Happy New Year




New Years Eve Party





The NYE drinkathon begins!

Don't forget to collect the cheese gesture from the front of the stage.. for each cheesy party tune you nominate, everyone has to have a chug of their drink.

And for the first time, the hit 'n' miss meter is in play!   We have over 300 party songs for tonight, and you can participate by jogging the choones on if you don't like them!  Click the thumbs up to keep the record going, click the thumbs down to skip to the next one!

Party starts very shortly at 12pm SLT and runs all night and into tomorrow!

New Years Eve Party



On Saturday, join us as we say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017 at the London City New Years Eve Knee's up.

Starting 12pm SL (8pm UK) DJ Bailey and Torric will be taking turns to bring you the very best party songs of all time,  including the Cheese 'n' Wine selection, with a spattering of cheesy party songs.

The rules of the game are simple, every time you hear a cheesy choone, you chug your drink and get another. The winner is the first person to be sick and wear their knickers on their head.  Please chug responsibly.

Tesco's trolley's will be provided at the end of the night to get you home safely!

On Sunday, join us for the traditional Beach Party if you dare!

Let there be light.. and there was





Winter in Blighty is dark.  Day times are so short that we miss out on evening and go straight from afternoon to night time.   Then in the spring, evening gets reintroduced just ahead of the night time.

Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day in the UK.  So if you are fed up with the dark nights, tomorrow is a day to celebrate. Thursday 22nd December will be lighter by 3 seconds!

What will you do with all this extra daylight?  Well start making plans, because day light will rapidly increase over the next month.   By the end of January it will be almost an hour lighter than now, with a sunset at 4.47pm.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!



Open throughout the Holidays, enjoy the party season with us in London City!

Bento goes Live



Back in June, we blogged about the new skeleton enhancement system for avatars in Second Life.
A full year in the making, Bento is now live throughout the grid.

The addition of 90 extra bones to the skeleton will mean a revolution in realism for the avatars. Also, 30 extra face bones which can be  tied into appearance sliders will make for super realistic expressions.




On Monday, Linden Lab Blogged that the Bento is now live, following the promotion of its Bento Candidate viewer to release status.

The London Christmas Tree




During World War II, Norway was invaded and occupied by Germany, forcing the Norwegian king and government to create a government-in-exile in London.

The British military also helped train and organize Norwegian commandos to attack Nazi installations in Norway.

As a token of appreciation from the Norwegian people to the people of Britain, a Norwegian Christmas Tree is sent every year from Oslo to Trafalgar Square in London.

Visit the London Christmas tree here and marvel at its magnificent balls http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/83/186/23

World Aids Day




Activists the world over put a spotlight on the AIDS virus on this day.

AIDS has killed 35 million people since the start of the pandemic. Every year, 2 million people acquire the virus, and the U.N. estimates that more than 1 million people die from the virus annually.

A lot has happened since the first World AIDS Day in 1988. Countries in which the topic was once taboo now offer testing and treatment. Mothers with HIV can have healthy babies and live to raise them. Drugs can keep the virus from spreading. More than 18 million people are on lifesaving anti-retroviral drugs that keep HIV in check. And now, scientists are talking about vaccines and a cure.

A large-scale trial of a potential vaccine is underway in South Africa. The study will involve more than 5,400 sexually active men and women ages 18 to 35 in a number of areas around South Africa, a country where more than 1,000 people a day are infected with HIV. The trial will last for four years.
