M'F disenoh! Moods You Sit in, Read On!!

Do you envision furniture as an integral part of your décor plan but not THE plan? Does the idea of tranquility remind you that have been wanting that special room in your apartment? (Hint to the guys: not THAT special room!!) A room that is as inviting for friendly chat as it is steamy and sexy, without that gross over sexed feeling; a place you can read a book by yourself, bring everyone into? The place where you can chill and listen to your faves, have company, your significant other, your best friend, or even other couples? Something that says, chill, relax, smooth out and take it as it comes?

Come to M'F disenoh! @ http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ocraco%20Island/37/163/24

Your mood will thank you

Another day and one more reason to come to SOHO in Downtown New York City. Come soon and visit bacs for comfort and style. These trainers are the only ones sure to get the guys as hot as you are while working out.

Plus at these fantastic prices you won’t have to outrun the bill collector or the fashion police, although you could (in style I might add!) These trainers are fun, fashionable and fast. Stylize your workout or fast getaway with bacs by Bacoo Balut!

Taxi below but you’ll want to walk home wearing them

Come Experience Vidal in Downtown New York City

One of the things that make cities so crazy and yet so magical is the convergence of so many cultures, fashions, sounds, exotic feelings, sights and anything you can think of. When you visit an international city, chances are you’ll go to a restaurant overhearing different languages, take a taxi with a driver from yet a different place and shop for some fashions inspired in one country, designed in another and purchased in a store owned by someone from someplace else still!

When you have been home awhile and if you are lucky you’ll open your purse one day and a coin from some faraway place will fall to the floor, flooding your mind with memories. Maybe a little smile will appear, or even a tear if the experience was deep.

In the past this dream reserved for only a special few. Now, many more people can both experience the sensation of international cities, and they can find ways to prosper. Everything I said is true right here (well the foreign coin will have to be a Linden ok?)

The Owners of Vidal and our Downtown Sim have a vision to make this opportunity available for everyone worldwide. People designing and selling things electronically at prices that will allow them to be better off in their own homeland.

How is this possible??

Come and find out. Ask someone on the street, go to a restaurant, take a cab and finally stop in Vidal. Amazingly it's the city plan!!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Lá Fhéile Pádraig!!

So if we are really city guys and gals then let’s do it!! New York has the largest Saint Patrick’s celebration in the world. Wear your green and pinch those who don’t (see pic of Azi taking one for the green team).

Stop in one of our bars or clubs, meet friends for drinks, or just amble around SOHO and see what happens. It’s all fun all the time in Downtown New York.

Zo, One Restaurant – Two Unique Experiences

Hey Guys, wandering our city is always exciting and enlightening. Having had some setbacks recently I was needing to chat. My friend and boss Maria took me to Zo where we sat and chatted for almost two hours (My lips are sealed about that!) She was so good and made me forget everything and soon it was evident that this was a great place for tea and girl talk during the day.

Is there a difference between day and night?

Returning later for some pics this guy friend volunteered to come along help (Yes I know better and of course let him anyway!) He went ahead and chose a table in a quiet corner tp’ing me to join him (funny how he did that). Well!!!! We chatted a long time and when we looked at the clock it was 2 phenomenal hours! (Has your IM melted on the screen ever???) Giggles and no pics; so back today!!!

So! Zo, One Restaurant – Two Unique Experiences. Capriche?

Hugz, Azi

No cash? No worries! ATMs at Your Fingertips!


You are coming home late from a club and cannot resist one last peek in a shop. See a dress or shoes you cannot live without? Perfect style, beautiful color, that special someone is going to go crazy!!! Breathing deep you push the buy button after agonizing over all the choices but suddenly that awful response appears. Insufficient funds!!!
You need more money in your account!!!

No worries! City wide ATMs are convenient and open 24/7. (Special note: Getting a boyfriend to keep your ATM account in cash is up to you.)

Living in the city means fun, shopping, parties and convenient access to your cash to make it happen.

Downtown New York,

Robust Communications and Shared Decision Making Yields Phenomenal Growth

Our city is growing! New visitors are both arriving and equally important returning. Our hangout places and other areas are being used frequently. Yesterday alone our visitor counter recorded 233 unique new visitors!

We attribute this to the combined impact of:
•Authentic city activities,
•Business and shop owners,
•Search engine, and,
•Word of mouth.
People arrive, have fun, tell their friends, and return again for more fun.

We see it as our daily challenge to create the best possible 3d environment for the Second Life community helping them to enjoy their visit. We do that by continuous innovation, sharing ideas, co-creation and collaboration making us the leader in virtual city concepts.

Using social media tools such as twitter, blog and Facebook we communicate more effectively and utilize a shared group decision process. This allows us to solve problems, overcome barriers and more quickly exploit opportunities. This in turn allows us the ability keep our community informed with new developments.

Congratulations on this new moment of success in our virtual career!

Constanza Moleno Joins our Taxi Team

C I T Y S T A T E M E N T

I am happy to announce that Masgalih finally got himself a colleague! Our new taxi driver is Constanza Moleno, a stunning looking blond lady! Does she fear the question "can women actually drive" ? We sure can! She answered.

Constanza will be exploring Downtown New York, Manhattan City and the region around the Astoria hotel. Do you want them to actively promote your business? For a lawsy 200 L$ a day our Taxi Team will guide customers towards your stores!

Constanza welcome to the team!


This is what constanza had to say:

When i was asked to become a taxi driver i though... what the hell.. that must be boring! As soon as i met my colleague Masgalih we started to have great fun, he introduced me to Downtown New York and Manhattan city all its roads and alleys. Then we got our first customers a Spanish couple who asked for a "touristic tour" trough the city. How romantic they both jumped into their own cab and off we went. After the tour the couple left me a good tip! So far i enjoy driving, its different then the standard starter jobs as dancer or model.



Regards,

This City Never Ever Sleeps!!

This City Never Ever Sleeps!!

So, I went to Ralph’s at the Red Light district to sit and write quietly. Sleepily curled up in the corner I happened to glance up and observed Willow (again!!) She and Ophelia were chatting about this and that and enjoying another day in the city. Well, soon Masgileh the cab driver came in to take a break and then Luca came and sat next to Willow (mmhmmm). It was soo cute! He bought her a milkshake; then they sat close and whispered it seemed. (Something going on here??? IDK!!) So girls and guys, maybe you will meet someone here? Don’t miss out!

So! How can I skip the original purpose of writing today? Last night lots of peeps were just hanging out in the city. It was really busy with lots of people just visiting and chatting. One couple seemed to be having “fun” and went upstairs from the Red Light, (comprendes?) Then some guys were just chilin and came on a little, and then a panhandler was trying to borrow lindens, and a business woman checking us out. It was soo cool!! A real city night!
Have stories? Tell me please???

Exploring Downtown leads to Fun!!!!

T H E N E W C L U B
Hey guys,
Like every other city our own downtown New York moves and changes. I was exploring earlier and found this new club being constructed. When I looked inside Willow was hanging out there at the bar. We chatted a little and finally she admitted she had met some guy in exploring the city and was going to meet him there for some quiet dancing.

Later she confided he said he was going to take her someplace special for a special night out right here in the city. Made me wonder what special places everyone has.
Thinking about Downton New York, why not tell us where you go for special romance, a night out, sunset, sunrise or maybe where you sit and talk all night.
Would love to know; Time to share the places ok guys??
Hugz,
Azi

A DAY OF SILENCE FOR OUR FRIEND CEEMUZIK

Today  we recieved some terrible news here at The Astoria. Our good friend and event planner Ceemuzik Monday aka Oracle passed away a few hours ago.  Our condolences go out to  his family at this time.

How do you begin... what to say.  How do you thank someone like Ceemuzik. He was a wonderful person, a good friend, a master DJ/producer and loved dearly by all who encountered him. There are few like him. He gave of himself many times going out of his way to help a person if they needed it.  I myself being one of them. Always there to give encouragement for our vision, advice, his time and his expertise.

He was honest, direct, to the point but kind and very helpful. Just a good person. As I stand here in front of the DJ booth at The Astoria all is very quiet. There is no house music..no records spinning...no familiar voice to welcome all to The Astoria... only a void where the Master DJ used to be. He is gone but definately not forgotten.  Cee you will be dearly missed....
