50 First Dates – # 21 to #30

Why oh why couldn’t that movie have been called 35 first dates… lol.

So here’s the deal, I am providing one more installment for tonight, then I am considering myself officially on vaca til after I get back from blowing shit up for the holidays which will be early next week (providing I can still type if I am missing a finger or two of course.)

Also, per another request, I made the pictures a little bigger this go around, although I will tell you that I was in and out of these spots in like 2 minutes flat, so I didn’t spend a lot of time setting up cool “artistic” shots. The point is to give a visual flavor to go along with the description, and to give Jell yet another reason for a costume change… as if she needed one.

#21 Paradise Blanket

Every guy should own a paradise blanket. It is like having a date in a box, where you can instantly rez at various altitudes any of a number of prepared scenic backdrops. You typically have to have 100 – 200 prims available for the sets. The beauty of these things is that if you plan ahead, you can go position dancing, sex, and/or cuddle balls in all the right spots to take an average backdrop and make it a role play heaven! The balls will still be right where you left them (provided you take the blanket back up to that same elevation). I linked here the free paradise blanket that can be found in Midnight Reflections, which is a great place to go try out all the various options, and then GO BUY ONE! I can’t even begin to describe the fun you can have with the office, hotel, beach, or even dungeon themed sets.

#22 Tunnel of Light

Another great addition by the Rezzable team, where you can take a 6.5 minute ride in a teacup through a visually captivating light show which was designed to showcase some of the effects in the Windlight viewer rollout. There is a new neon club addition, which was fun to look at, but would seriously hurt my head if I stayed for more than 10 minutes at a time.

#23 Dragon Moon Resort

Although we couldn’t track down the couple inner tubes which used to be a fav, this resort still provides lots of fun options for a date. You can hang out on the beach, ride one of the free provided jet skis, explore the island, go ice skating, and even snorkel all in the same great sim. Also feel free to bust out your dragon avi, because you are likely to see quite a few dragons carousing around.

#24 Castle Wars!

This one is always one of our personal fav’s, from the mind of RacerX. Basically you rez a catapult and each try to take out the other person(‘s) castle. Once all the pieces of your castle are taken out, you are out of the game. Very fun to play!

#25 Carnival of Doom

If you are just a little bit sick and or twisted and enjoy figuring out how many ways you can kill yourself off at an old abandoned amusement park, then this is a great date option! This one is actually one of my favorite sims, and inspired one of our machinima projects which you can view here if you are interested.

#26 Maximillion Kleene

I wasn’t able to slurl this one, since Max performs at a variety of places all across the grid, but all you have to do is search out his name under the event listings for live performers. There are a variety of really good live acts out there to choose from (although I recommend scouting out the band/performer at least once before inviting a date,) but Max is a great one, and comes with my personal stamp of approval.

#27 Heavenly Rose Garden

This particular one does not come highly recommended, but will do if you are in a bind (like say trying to come up with 50 first date locations.) This sim is basically a conglomeration of a bunch of different little scenes with pose balls set up for pictures. You might have a waterfall right next to a turkish tent, but as long as you work your camera angles you can still get some good shots with this sim, and if you are still relatively noobish be sort of impressed… lol. kk moving on.

#28 Butterfly Garden at Blue Note Jazz Club

The Blue Note Jazz Club is a pretty good jazz club, but one of the benefits they have is that they have a very nicely decorated garden area next to the club, which provides a nice scenic place to take a date. In particular, they have this little butterfly garden area set up with a slow dance ball in it to make for a scenic backdrop.

#29 Midnight Reflections

Not only does Midnight Reflections provide several free Paradise Blankets, but you can also explore the grounds for many scenic spots to take a date. You really can’t ever go wrong on a Complete Me pillow from Pillow Talk by Sandy Clymer, but there are also caves you can explore with running water, and treehouses complete with sex gen rugs in many of them.

#30 Chi

Sure we know the owners of this sim quite well, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the most beautiful sims in SL. You can do Tai Chi, surf, or just explore the beautiful landscape surrounding the active volcano. Just whatever you do, keep an eye on that llama!

  1. Wow, I love this series! Thanks for doing it.

  2. Thank you dale, glad you appreciate it! I was hoping somebody liked it, because it is ending up being quite a bit of work. 🙂

  3. Yeah, great stuff!

  4. Hawk, I can see this is a lot of work, but well worth it. It’s a fabulous resource and I have found several in your list so far that I had not visited over the last 20 months in SL. Keep going!

  5. You might wanna add Sweethearts Jazz Club to it. The reason for the big change at Phat Cat’s was that they sold to another couple who took it in a different direction. Meanwhile, the original crew behind Phat Cats went and created Sweethearts, which is basically what the old Phat Cats was in its glory days. SOrry, no SLUrl, but it’s easily found in Search Places.

  6. @Stone, I am back from vaca and done with work for the day, so getting ready to start on the next round. Thanks for the appreciation though, it makes it worth the effort!

    @Arcadian, Wow this is AWESOME news… that will be the first place I look for when I log in. I didn’t know the backstory, but I will be ecstatic to find something in the vein of the old Phat Cats.
