Muddy's, The Venue That's Always Open!

I dropped into Muddy's Cafe last night and it was late, but as usual, the wonderful venue was full of people having a good time!  There was some great music being played by dj Candi Campese and Muddy's hostess was Stella Davros who was greeting everyone as they arrived. Quite a job for Stella as people were dropping in every few minutes!  Muddy's is always open, so get along there and boogie on down!!

Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet Night At Zorro's Tavern

It was the battle of the big bands tonight at the very popular Zorro's Tavern!  DJ BrainPhrozen Woodsheart played some awesome music by Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet, those famous 80s bands whose music will probably go on forever!  Brain was supported by Zorro Hostess Catriona Macbain, and Cat made everyone welcome.  I'm not sure who won the battle of the bands, but everyone enjoyed the evening very much!  I suspect SL people already know this, but there is a Duran Duran sim you can visit, which was opened by the actual band a while back. Yes, some famous people do drop into SL every so often, or maybe lots of famous people have alts (alternative avatars) and drop in quite a lot, so you never know who you are rubbing avatar shoulders with!

Hibiscus's Dress Was One Of Nilsy's Fabulous Designs!

Hibiscus In One Of  Nil's Latest Designs

Second Life clothes just get more and more wonderful and so realistic, especially since mesh hit the scene.  I didn't like mesh at first, but now it's the norm and it's funny when you look back to the original painted on style system clothes, though there are still some beautiful designs in those too for sale. Since having the mesh Maitreya body 'Lara', when I shop I look for shops that sell the Maitreya appliers so I can add layers of clothing and even tattooes to my avatar if I want to. 

My friend Hibiscus Hastings dropped over tonight for us to play the card game Skippo, Hib is very good at Skippo, as is Ed and Berni who came over to play as well, so I have to keep an eye on them as they run away with the game when I'm distracted looking at their latest outfits!  They all looked very stylish and Hib's dress was lovely (I wished I'd got a picture of Berni too, she had a very chic black satin top with a gorgeous gold satin pencil skirt, get you next time Berni!).  I asked Hib where she had bought the dress, and guess what, it is one of Nils Tomorrow's brilliant designs.  Nilsy is one of the most successful designers in SL, she is so talented.  I remember her first little shop in SL London, what a long way she has come since then!  

After the game of Skippo I said goodnight to everyone and teleported over to Nilsy's main store.  There is such a selection there it's hard to decide what to buy and Nilsy is now selling the mesh body applier outfits too!  I saw this absolutely amazing pale pink dress and I knew I had to have it!  Nilsy has such a varied range of outfits that they would suit any occasion, go and treat yourself at Nils Island Store

Burns Night 2016 At The HangOut Club

I hope you had your haggis for dinner tonight!  Yes it was Burns Night;  A time to celebrate that wonderful Scottish poet 'Rabbie' Burns, the famous 18th Century bard.  Auld Lang Syne is probably Robert Burn's most famous poem (song), but he is also known for "A Red, Red Rose"; "A Man's a Man for A' That"; "To a Louse"; "To a Mouse"; "The Battle of Sherramuir"; "Tam o' Shanter"; and "Ae Fond Kiss" and many more (list of poems from Telegraph article about Burns).  To mark the occasion there was a Burn's Night party at the HangOut Club!  Owner/dj Janis Short had some brilliant Scottish tunes and Scottish artists on the menu, and the clubbers proudly wore some colourful tartan outfits.  Bagpipes and kilts swung to the sound of the music and I promised not to shoot any pictures from the ground level in case the kilts showed too much 'leg' (thanks for the hint Slate!). It was a lovely night, and a smashing way to celebrate one of Scotland's finest!  Happy Burns Nght everyone!
