Grand Opening: The Roadhouse

A few friends of mine are opening a bar, and Friday night is the grand opening. The Roadhouse, a little biker bar in Gula, with some great tunes and events everyday. This place even has a cage for the band to play in, just like the movie Roadhouse.

The Grand Opening is this Friday at 7PM SLT and everyone is invited. They are planning on having live entertainment and I guarantee you will have a good time, stop by and check it out. A couple events that are already listed are best tattoo, stupid avatar tricks, and a skydiving contest based on accuracy and style.

Tell ‘em Stone sent you and get a free beer. ;)

Avatrait Gallery Introduces An Exclusive Showing By Shoshana Epsilon

Evanston, IL – 04/11/2008 – Avatrait Gallery, Second Life’s premier site for “Digital Impressionist” art, has recently undergone a major renovation as part of the on-going upgrades to the Simuality sim. They are very pleased to announce the resumption of monthly features with an exclusive showing of images by noted artist Shoshana Epsilon, starting with a gallery re-opening celebration on Saturday, April 12th, at 1pm SLT.

Avatrait Gallery

Shoshana noted on her blog:

“I’ve been working privately for months to try to come up with a new set of pictures that would be unique. … I’m really excited about this show. I’ve really stretched, as far as the subject matter is concerned. There will be topics on display that I’ve been too sensitive to touch before.”

She notes that many of her images have “a back story” and invites attendees to ask her about these, but also adds that some are just pure whimsy. Aside from the April 12th opening, Shoshana will be available for additional “meet-the-artist” events during the month: Thursday, April 17th at 4pm; Sunday, April 20th at 5am; Tuesday, April 22nd at 4pm; and Tuesday, April 29th at 4pm (all times SLT).

Shoshana Epsilon’s images can be purchased both on an exclusive basis in-world (only one copy of the image exists), and as high-quality real-world prints. As always, there is a “freebie” framed graphic by our featured artist available across from the gallery welcome desk.
