Dispatches from Callahan’s Place: September 2017

Comments Off on Dispatches from Callahan’s Place: September 2017

Yes, I’m back! And pretty happy about it, too. Firstly, I want to extend many, many thanks to Dutch Galaxy, for filling in for me this summer. And, to the Senior Patrons, who helped him keep the Place running smoothly. I’ve always said I couldn’t run things without them, and this summer was proof positive.

So, what’s going on, what’s coming up?

  • Time for a new PAL (Patron-At-Large). Thanks to Zonker Silversmith, who graciously agreed to serve an extra term, so that things could remain stable over the summer while I was gone.  For the last quarter of the year, Caitlyn Haiku will be taking over as PAL, so starting in October. Thanks, Cait!
  • Save the date: September 8th (This FRIDAY!). We celebrate our return to our regular (non-summer) schedule, which means an event every Friday night. So…it’s party time! Oh, and the theme–get this–is Rocky Horror Picture Show!
  • We’re back on schedule: The not-summer-schedule is now back in full force, which means there will be Trivia and other special events every Friday night, beginning at 5:30 pm SLT.
  • I’ll be clearing off the sim this week.  So, if you had any items from a summer build, they’re going to be returned to your inventory–just a heads-up!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Leb

Dispatch from Callahan’s Place: June 2017

Comments Off on Dispatch from Callahan’s Place: June 2017

Greetings, Callahooligans!

May is almost over, which means that Callahan’s Place is heading into the summer. Thing brings about some changes in schedule and new events, so put these on your calendar!

*FIRST: No event tonight (5/26/17), since it is the American Memorial Day weekend and many folks have RL committments.

*SECOND: We move into the summer schedule, beginning in June. That means that Unday still happens every Tuesday night (same time, same channel), but Friday Trivia/other events are every other Friday. Be sure to stay tuned to the official calendar, which you can find on the Callahan’s Place website: https://callahooligans.wordpress.com/google-calendar/

*THIRD: We’re going to start off the summer with a big beach party on Friday, June 2nd, so save the date for the Doggone Days of Summer!

*FOURTH: We have a very special group build planned this summer as well. It goes along with our beach party theme…can you guess what it is? 🙂

*FIFTH: Lastly, a reminder that, since summer is our slower season for events, that the Place’s Cigar Box doesn’t get filled as quickly. Even if you can’t make it to an event, please don’t forget to add a few $L here and there, to make sure we can keep the Place up and running!

Thanks for all you do,

Leb

Comments Off on Dispatches from Callahan’s Place: March 2017

Greetings, Callahooligans!

Here’s what’s up, in no particular order:

*You may have noticed some changes around the sim. In particular, we have a new events board on the dock, and 3 small beach huts directly across from the Place. I’m playing with the idea of possibly renting these out to group members. Thoughts?

*This Friday’s Trivia Night is being co-hosted by Madkitty and Zonker. That’s TOMORROW! See your tail here at 5:30 pm SLT.

*On the eve of the Ides of March (March 14th, we’ll be having a toga party as our Unday event.

*We’re creeping closer to that all-important holiday: ST. PATRICK’S DAY! Save the date, March 17th, for the Shamrock & Roll Celtic Sock Hop.

*We’ll be looking for a new Patron-At-Large soon, when Traverse Janus’s term expires. Want to have a bigger say in what happens with Callahan’s? It’s not a huge time committment (just ask some of our past PALs, like Aliasi Stonebender or Fieger Difference). Got questions? Ask me!

Thanks for helping to keep our community here in SL,

Leb

August News

Hello, folks!

What’s going on this month? Here’s what:

* Aliasi Stonebender is finishing up her term as Patron-at-Large. We’re looking for someone to step up for the fall quarter. Workload is pretty light, honest! Want to give it a try? Just IM me.

*We will be returning to an every-Friday schedule after American Labor Day (the week of Sept. 5). We’ll be celebrating with a homecoming party, Sept. 6th. SAVE THAT DATE!

*Fieger Difference hosts “The Blues” Trivia Night on August 26th.

*Julianna Serimann and Madkitty Abaaye jointly host “Sweet and Sour” Trivia on September 9th.

*Lastly, please (!) don’t forget to feed our Cigar Box–the end of August is sneaking up on FAST!

As always, thanks for all you folks do,

Leb

What’s up in July?

Comments Off on What’s up in July?

Quite a bit, actually.  Just off the top of Leb’s head:

  • Some special Undays, including an underwater-themed night and Camp Callahooligan
  • The beginning of our annual build event:  “Pier Pressure!”
  • Trivia Nights on July 15th and July 29th
  • The winners of the Photography Contest will be announced

Also, please remember that summer is kind of slow when it comes to the Cigar Box. Even if you can’t make events, please make sure to drop a few Linden $ in–it’s the only way we have to keep the Place running!

 

What’s up in June?

Comments Off on What’s up in June?

In short:  LOTS!

  • We bid farewell to Fieger Difference as Patron-at-Large for the past two quarters.  He’ll still be around as a Place regular, no worries! Please thank him for his service, as well as his entertaining notices.
  • We say “hello” to Aliasi Stonebender, who is the Patron-at-Large for the summer quarter. She’ll be hosting at least an Unday or two…we’ll see what she has in store for us this summer!
  • Speaking of summer, don’t forget that we begin the summer schedule after the American Memorial Day weekend (this coming weekend, May 28-29). That means Trivia Nights move to every other week. Undays still happen every Tuesday. Check the schedule (at right) for exact events.
  • Trivia topics for June:  Degenerate Art (June 3) hosted by Fieger Difference, and Homework (June 17) hosted by Gjertrud Gjellerup.
  • We typically have a build event during the summer. Look for forthcoming info about “Pier Pressure!
  • And, save the date for a big summer party:  July 5 will be “Drown Your Sorrows, Not Your Friends.”
  • Lastly, Senior Patron Dutch Galaxy will be sponsoring a photo contest this month. Details to follow!

Oh, and don’t forget: no Trivia Night this Friday (May 27), due to the American holiday weekend.
