Bank Holiday




Good morning from London City, where it's the Bank Holiday again in the UK. 
Bring a sausage and enjoy the holiday Barbecue today.

The Bank Holiday is here!






Well here we are again, with another long Bank Holiday Weekend.   Just like real life, its going to be a scorcher in Second Life too.

The Olympic sized paddling pool is back for you to strut your stuff in your new (and hopefully not recycled) bathing costumes.  The on-site bar serving ice cold pies and hot beer is available for your convenience and there are special events throughout the long weekend and of course the Saturday night concert!

To enjoy this virtual extravaganza you will need copious amounts of alcohol, and as ever, we've researched the best beer deals nationwide as a part of our public information service.

Deals this weekend include Carling at Asda, 36 cans for £21 (enough even for Mike to enjoy a Saturday night), Kronenbourg at Sainsbury's, 18 cans for £14, and at Tesco, an offer of Desperados Tequila Beer, just £20 for 24 bottles!

Of course if you're on a budget and enjoy giving your bladder a thorough workout on your way to inebriation, check out the bargain bucket grog available in the cheap-seat isles of most supermarkets.

We hope to see you, in whatever state you arrive, for the Bank Holiday Parties, here in the City.

Easter Begins!



Jesus and Jan
Stop by the Grog shop on your way home tonight, the very long weekend is finally here!
Four days of eating, drinking, dancing and  rain is ahead of us.

No Easter is complete without getting completely blasted, so don't miss out on these stunning beer deals especially designed to make your liver turn to the size of a walnut before Tuesday.

As part of our public service, we have trawled the supermarket sites to ensure you get the best deals as sobriety is somewhat indecent at this time of year.



Tip up, cos from 11am SL Time today (7pm UK) the weekend starts here in London City and runs until Tuesday!

And don't forget, the exploding easter egg hunt, a certain distasteful annual race and the jewel in the crown this weekend... The Jebus Revival on Saturday at 12pm SL time.

Countdown to the Bank Holiday



It may be a dreary overcast Monday in the UK today, but what is left of Hurricane Kenneth will blow through the UK later this week, bringing the gulf stream with it, for a gloriously sunny and warm weekend.

What is more, it's a long weekend!   We love our Bank Holidays in old Blighty, and the Long Summer Weekend is upon us.  T-minus 3 days 'til blast off!

As usual, London City will have a packed schedule of events for you to enjoy, starting on Thursday and running all the way through Monday night.   Get your beach outfits ready!  Beach Party this time next week.

Bank Holiday Beach Party!





It's been a couple of weeks since the UK had a Bank Holiday, so we're mighty pleased there is another one this Monday.  Apparently much of the USA is also on holiday too.

So what better time than to plan a Beach Party and BBQ at the new Seaside in London City West.

Starting 3am SL time (11am in the UK), come enjoy a sausage or two and a burger on the beach with all the beautiful people.

Start getting your costumes sorted!

Here comes the Sun




It may only be Wednesday, but we can look forward to a wonderful 3 day weekend ahead.
The Sun has got its hat on and its certainly going to be wall to wall heat in the UK, hopefully a lot of sunshine too!

It's important to take on lots of fluids during this hot weather.  So, as part of our public service, we thought we'd look at the all important grog deals this weekend ahead...

Most Supermarkets have some good offers but by far the best this weeks is Tesco and Asda.  And if you can stomach the stuff, Tesco's offer of 18 cans of Carling for £10 is perhaps the best offer of the lot.

We hope you will share your tinnies with us here in London City as we head into the weekend with a special Beach Party and Barbie on Bank Holiday Monday!

Remember to shop early, in case of a Beer Shortage!

Springtime in London City



London City West

It was the best fun since Christmas, arguably event better!  There was no need to buy presents or to visit long lost relatives usually only wheeled out for weddings and funerals.

But here in the UK, four days of rest and relaxation with the odd tipple here and there, has finally come to an end :(

Looking on the bright side, the clocks moved forward on Sunday morning and we gained another hour of daylight as we were propelled into Springtime. It seems amazing that in January we were adjusting to night time starting at just after 4pm, whereas today, dusk will be at 8.03pm

And for many people, this is just a 4 day working week, so not long to wait until the next weekend!

Looking forward, there is another Bank Holiday at the end of April and by then, dusk will be at 9.10pm and here London City SL, the first of the beach parties is just around the corner!

Last night in London City..



The plonk was flowing and you all showed yourselves up disgracefully.  I on the other hand, was sober as a judge, a gentleman, witty and debonair.  At least, that is how I remember it, and I'll drink to that.

Enjoy the video of the antics and don't forget Substation today at 11am SL time (7pm UK) where we can carry on, thanks to a long weekend here in the UK.


The video is in hi-def, so click the little cog to change settings.

Bank Holiday




It is another Bank Holiday here in England which means us Brits get another day off work.

According to Weatherman 'Aint', there is a big old storm brewing and moving across central England, so although it may not be Barbie weather in real life, here in London City it is sun, sea, and surf at the Beach Scene.

So come and hang out with the bathing beauties and soak up some virtual sunshine rays and enjoy extra events around the London City Estate today.

August Bank Holiday in London City



You have to feel a bit sorry for the people in real life who deferred going to Notting Hill Carnival on sunny Sunday and decided wait until Bank Holiday Monday instead!   Traditional British Bank Holiday weather again.. Heavy rain, not letting up for a moment  and it has been going on all day here in real life London where we are based.

Luckily in the Virtual London that is London City in Second Life rain in our regions is at scheduled times, half an hour after sunrise courtesy of our bespoke Immersive Weather System. 

Enjoy this video of the Bank Holiday weekend in London City and keep an eye out for Billy using our exclusive Portal system halfway through the video to seamlessly move from London City(1) to London City3, part of the Experience Tools System.

Have a great day and don't get too off your face... I'll drink to that!
