Summer Fest in SL-utopia

The summer season has come, we are going to have the summer fest. July 15 is one of Ura-bon-e(盂蘭盆会) days, which is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors. But we often change the days one month later because the farmers are too busy on original days .

You can see the tower for bon dancing there in SL-utopia. Many food stalls are built in the square.

Bird view of the square.

There are many food stalls around the tower red and white striped.

The shaved ice machine is placed on the beach table. Kanji 氷 in the flag means "ICE".

You can grab the shaved ice with syrup in the cup and spoon for it.

Hair Fair ,wigs for kids 2019

Hair Fair is a little over a month away, starting on August 17th 2019. Each year we ask the community of Second Life to help us further by creating Bandanas that we sell during the event and round out the event with the last day being the official Bandana Day.

Each year we receive bandanas either textured variants of the bandanas we provide in our kit or unique mesh created by those that want to help support this cause. We invite anyone interested to grab the kit available and help add to the money raised through this annual event, this is the 12th Year of Bandanas and we are so moved by everyone’s eagerness to help. You do not have to own a store or be a creator to help, look at the information to see how you can participate, thank you.

Cafe & Bar Rivage

Cafe & Bar Rivage
ピアノと波の音が聞こえる夕日が綺麗な静かなバーです。羽休めにどうぞ。席数4席ですので大勢が苦手の方もお気軽に。オーナー ken abbot   ※7seasフィッシングゲーム置きましたのでご自由にお使いください。※手伝ってくれる方募集してます。新たに女性スタッフ入りました。MAP

ひさしぶりの探訪記事です。今回はCafe & Bar Rivageさんにお邪魔しました。スリンクからの訪問です。Rivage(リヴィッジ)とは海岸・河岸の意味があります。発音が違いますがフランス語(リヴァージュ)も同じ綴りです。

エントランスに置かれたおしゃれなお店の看板 「開店中」のものです。


お店の中はゆったりした雰囲気です。グランドピアノも置かれています。さりげない落ち着いた照明が良い雰囲気をかもしています。ピアノはタッチで演奏開始します。


レトロな味のポスターは同じサイズで統一されています。

ポスターの一枚はリキュールとして販売されていたアブサンの広告です。日本では某野球選手のあだ名として知られているお酒ですね。"Absinthe"と書かれています

カウンター席の他に4席のおしゃれなラウンジチェアーが置かれています

ここの売りのひとつ、輝く夕陽です。



案内にもあったスタッフさんとしばらくお話しできました。お店のデザインについてはオーナーさんのこだわりがあるとのお話でした。なるほど、納得です。理解があって接客も上手なスタッフさんがいるオーナーさんは幸せ者です。
