Wow!! How fast has this week gone? It's zoomed by... And what a fantastic weekend in London city as always.
All week we had events at Bar Soho, Substation, Worlds end pub and Lezbo, all had contests and played great music, ranging from the 50's & 60's, Chart and Pop music, to Hardcore Dance, there really is something for everyone here, and that's what makes London City the Top Destination in Second Life, along with all the fantastic people and fun we have.
Friday 8th June
We saw the big opening of Madame Lala's, so to speak.
New refurbishment, New manager.
Madame Lala's is based upon Madame Jojo's 8-10 Brewer Street, Soho, London W1 - circa 1986-1990.
In the late 1980's, Revue Bar owner, Paul Raymond opened Madame Jojo's, named after its Filipino manager, female impersonator Jojo.
By the early nineties, Paul Raymond and its Manager, Jojo, had parted company, but the name lives on to this day.
Madame Lala's is based upon the era of 1986 to 1990, when Jojo's was a "Club Extraordinare" with a nightly Revue act ranging from live singers to amusing cheap budget shows featuring the staff of the club.
The refurbishment has stayed true to the original theme of Jojo's but has been given a more modern twist crafted by Ruby and Bailey.
As Torric bow's out of the proceedings to concentrate on other New exciting London City ventures, Bailey who did a wonderful job in Bar Soho takes up the reins, and put's a whole new spin on this already popular club.
Madame Lala on Baileys new post, " Lala look's forward to watching Bailey work the club, it gives Lala more time to drink and sleep.".... Lovely isn't she :)
Woooo Saturday! Busy as ever in London City, people from all over the grid came to the live show in Regents Park, it is always a good idea to get there early as the sim fill's to bursting point and this weekend was no exception.! There was a best in Black and White contest, where people came in their mono-chrome outfits in hope of winning some Linden dollars, it's always fun to see the many different outfits in the same theme.
And then Live in Regents park Mika.
On stage around 9pm. Mika and his band rocked it! He sang his awesome songs which included Love to day, Big girl, you are beautiful, Billy Brown, and many more, which the crowd loved and sang along with.
It was great to have a brand new performer in London city, and I'm sure Mika will visit us again, so if you did miss out this time look out for him again very soon.
After the concert it was time to head over to Lezbo,
Lezbo opens 10:30 pm / 2:30 slt, and it is a club with a difference, each night the club is transformed into a different theme echoing the best in event. On Saturday there was a a best in 80's roller disco.
The whole club was whisked back to the 80's with a neon glow which was very popular back then, free skates were given to everyone who attended so we could ALL enjoy the fun. Later the contest was announced and lucky winners left with a handful of Linden dollars.
Sunday saw Lezbo take on a skateboard park, what a hoot, people looking like Tony Hawk, skateboarding like professionals around the club, it was awesome.
So, that's me done for another week in the awesome London City.
I'll see you next time after another fantastic week xxx.

How wonderful, we can all carry on from where we left off :)
This Friday, join Roy, Rose and Coffee in Substation, playing 50's & 60's music from 11am SL (7pm UK).
Bar Soho will be playing its mix of the most recent dance tunes with some favourites from the past included for good measure.
Wil and his crew will open the doors at 1pm SL (9pm UK)
Madame Lala's is under new management as I bow out of the proceedings to concentrate on our other ventures. Taking over the reins is Bailey who did a wonderful job in Bar Soho. The brand new refit has been finely crafted by Ruby and Bailey and we cannot wait to see which direction this team chooses to steer the Revue Bar.
On Saturday, join us for Party in The Park from 12pm SL, 8pm UK.
Presenting a brand new concert for your enjoyment, MIKA, on stage at 1pm SL.
With prize for best in Black & White.
Mika first found fame in 2007 with his initial album, Life in Cartoon Motion. This was later followed with The Boy Who Knew Too Much. Both albums sold over 5 million copies each, earning Mika several Grammy Awards and making him one of the most successful British solo acts of this new century.
Get the beers in. We have some partying to catch up on!

|"I sometimes wonder if the tragedies my family has suffered are a |
karmic price for all the fame and fortune the Bee Gees have had"
Apart from the Bee Gee's music, there are so many other songs written for other artists including Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, and the musical scores for films, Saturday Night Fever, Grease and Titanic.
Selling more than 220 million records, it is estimated that with his brothers, Robin wrote 969 songs, averaging one a fortnight for the past 40 years.
This Friday from 2pm SL (10pm UK) at Madame Lala's, please come and enjoy an evening of Robin Gibb - A Lifetime of Music", with solo tracks and some of the lesser known Bee Gee's songs.

Well another weekend has ended and a new week has begun. We had the usual shenanigans in London City with all the venues going full out to keep everyone entertained. Bar Soho, Madame Lala's London Revue, Lezbo, World's End and Substation all had events with diverse themes - but one theme did re-occur across Sunday and that was Best in Swimwear. Obviously everyone was wishing for summer and we even had an impromptu beach party in Regent's Park on Sunday!
The big event of the weekend was the Saturday concert in Regent's Park. For the first time on the main stage we had the amazing live singer Adevina Citron. An hour of songs and humorous chat kept the crowd entertained.
And that's me signing off for another week - be good!

So here we are again, except my blogging of the exploits in London City are slightly later than usual as it was a Bank Holiday weekend here so we continued partying through Monday. I am so exhausted that I am ready to get back to work for a rest.
Three parties seems to be the way of life on a Friday now with Substation hosting Best in 50's Fashion, Bar Soho having Best in Sci Fi (for May the Fourth) and Madame Lala's rounding the evening off with a Best With Own Teeth contest. I am not sure who actually checked the teeth, but thankfully it wasn't me.
Continuing on where we left off on Friday we had another three events on Saturday. The evening started at World's End with a Best in Angels and Demons themed event. Following on from that we headed on over to Regent's Park for a Best in Underwear contest with Tom Jones tribute taking to the main stage.
The night ended at Lezbo with an Under The Sea event and another of Ruby's amazing themed sets.
On Sunday we began to wind down from the constant partying as Substation ran a Best in Beatles Era contest. Plenty of Beatles' hits and a pleasant atmosphere in the 60s themed underground club. Sunday then finished at Lezbo with a Best in Spanish Outfit contest that saw some spectacular dancing with fans and castanets.
As Monday was a Bank Holiday and we managed to escape from real life and work, there was a traditional street party, which also played host to Adele and Best in Come As You Are. The event saw the square outside Bar Soho transformed to a makeshift venue with catering facilities to suit all tastes (especially the beer tent).
The long weekend then ended at Bar Soho with a Worst Dressed contest. As that has just finished as I am writing this, the outfits are still burning my eyes so you shall have to excuse we while I go and blot them out with several pills.
Hope you all have a great week. Keep an eye on the blog for announcement of developments in London City this week and as always, thank you for your continued support.

Hello my luvvies. just auntie Bailey here with a quick weekend round up as I all partied out this weekend! And what a weekend it has been - we seem to get more and more parties each week.
On Friday we started off at Substation with an Addams Family party, before moving on to Bar Soho for Best in Baggy Pants and then ended up at Madame Lala's London Revue for Best in Hair and Teeth.
On Saturday we hit World's End for Best in Swimwear (maybe a bit chilly but no one noticed). Then it was on to Regent's Park for the big Saturday party. It had a Best in Cowboy/Cowgirl theme and a first for us - a tribute concert featuring John Denver.
|John Denver and his support band|
|Honestly we were line dancing...it just looks like a camp country recreation of the Thriller video|

On Sunday we were beamed up to Substation for a Best in Star Trek contest before heading over to the Lezbo Asylum for Best in Horror.

And so ends another weekend of costumes, music and insanity in London City. The weekend started on a classy note with Best in Formal at Bar Soho. It was a first for us, as the event was sponsored by Vero Modero, who provided free gifts and prizes.
Following on from Bar Soho, we headed on over to Madame Lala's London Revue for a Best in Disco contest and some fabulously camp and strange tunes.
On Saturday World's End Pub hosted a Best in Bizarre contest. I don't wish to besmirch the good names of anyone there, but sometimes you wonder if they make an effort for such contests or just come as themselves!
Hot on the heels of the event at World's End, the party continued with Best in Party Wear in Regent's Park. The tribute concert was the ever popular Neil Diamond, who had the crowd swaying with his crooning.
|Neil Diamond...well, maybe Cubic Zirconia...and his band|
On Sunday we had our own version of the London Marathon, which proved to be fun for competitors, marshals and spectators alike. Oddly enough even with furries and such, it didn't look any stranger than the real thing!
|London hasn't seen so many people running since the lootings|
Stay tuned to find out what is in store for next weekend!

Well that's another weekend over with and a new week has been birthed. On a brighter note, that means we are even closer to the next weekend in London City!
The weekend got underway for us at Bar Soho on Friday with a Best in Sportswear contest. Hostess Katty stepped in to help out as the regular host was abducted by aliens (or RL, which is much the same experience). Yours truly stepped in to DJ for the night and I have to confess, I rather enjoyed myself...not sure how much the clientele enjoyed my dance tracks though!
After Bar Soho, we headed down the street as we usually do on a Friday to Madame Lala's London Revue, where there was a special performance by Blondie.
|Maybe not Atomic, but definitely traces of radiation...|
For the main event in Regent's Park we saw the ever popular Bee Gees take to the stage. I do like a nice stage but it usually takes more than that to get my knickers wagging, however, this was something special - a giant disco ball that opened up to reveal the group.
|An awesome stage set|

Oh my goodness! And I thought the usual weekends in London City where hectic! An extended Easter weekend turned out to be crazy.
On Friday we started off with DJ Snakey and host Dex at Bar Soho for a Best in Yellow contest, followed by a mad gallop down the street while getting changed for Best in Glam with DJ Torric and hostess Ruby at Madame Lala's London Revue.

As Monday was a Bank Holiday, we had even more insanity with a Here Comes Summer beach party in Regent's Park with the dynamic duo of DJs Torric and Henning again and later a Best in Easter contest at Bar Soho with DJ Scar and host Bailey (that's me).
|Here Comes Summer!|

Good grief...what an insane weekend in London City. My bunions have bunions from all that dancing.
On Friday we had a change to the usual running order as the usual night at Bar Soho was cancelled to make way for an event by Gallery Xue in Trafalgar Square. It proved to be an absolute sim packer with people floating around the fountain.
After the Gallery Xue event, we headed over to Madame Lala's London Revue for another round of mayhem and madness. A Best in 80s contest proved to be challenging on the eyes...leg warmers. leotard, bad perm...and that was just me.
Saturday at World's End saw a Best in Super Hero contest, which provided a great warm up to the big event that was to follow - Queen in Regent's Park. It was a long concert (at around two hours) but the punters were kept happy with plenty of toe-tapping, hand-clapping and foot-stomping favourites.
Later at Lezbo there was a Best in Sci Fi contest that saw all kinds of madness - from aliens to robots - unleashed on the dance floor!
On Sunday, as it was the first of the month, there was a tea leaf reading at The Tea House by Lord of the Teapot.
This lead nicely in to a special event in the Hub - a L$3000 giveaway! Both events drew in the crowds...in fact, they were queuing out of the door for tea leaf readings.
Later on Sunday we had the grand opening of the new venue beneath Comptons. It is a fab and groovy 60s club called Substation. We were all magically transported back to 1967 with the music, hair and fashions.
After that, we had a Best in Under The Sea contest at Lezbo, which rounded the weekend off in suitably madcap style, with sea turtles, whales and merfolk!
Stay tuned for news of next weekends events - a nice long weekend...heaven only knows what will happen...
