Spending Our Dough: The SL Extravaganza Blog

-The Vault- Vintage Jazz Club was recently featured on the popular fashion blog, SL Extravaganza! Cutie Vault Cupcake Jennifer Corbeau is a contributing writer to it and wrote some really nice stuff about our crowd and our DJs and and our live talent. She takes a bunch of pictures at -The Vault-, so if you see her around, be sure to put on your best smile!

You can see the post here: SL EXTRAVAGANZA: TVDH No3 & The Vault

and you can view Jennifer's own fashion blog here: What About Meh?

One of the reasons *I* am so excited about Jennifer's blog write-up is that I found -The Vault- via a fashion blog. I wish I could remember which blog it was, because I'd love to give the writer a big kiss for helping me find my "home" in SL. That was way back in May of 2009... Almost two years ago. My, how time flies! Think about it! Another lost noob could now be surfing the 'Net and stumbling across -The Vault- like I did... There could be another me here! Lingering like some stray cat, drinking all our liquor... Oh jeez. Jennifer, get your post off the Internet! Now! (LOL just kidding! Keep it live!)

So hey, we have a super lineup tonight for you! At 7 tonight, it's time to get rude and skanky with DJ Gwillym and hostesses Sig and Belli and SKA music! At 9, Bosco takes over the airwaves with his eclectic library of jazz and "jazz" (I dunno how to label some of his music so we'll just stick some quotes 'round it, ok hmm?) hosted by the tequila girl herself, Miss Liz Barrrrrrrrrramm!

Pssst Jennifer... I'll have Q get that payment to you in the next couple days, OK? *wink*

-The Vault- Va Va Voom Burlesque Special!

Were you here last night? If you weren't, hoo-boy did you miss out! Last night -The Vault- had its monthly Va Va Voom Burlesque Special, and wooo-eeee! It was sizzling in here!

I was camera girl, taking souvenir snaps of you, our beloved patrons, with the Rat Pack boys.

Kadence looks like she's not too sure about the boys.

Liz looks happy though!

This is the sultry Veruca Monday in a gorgeous dress by Old Hollywood designer Donna Flora!

After a couple complaints of uninvited groping by Frank, I gave up and just enjoyed the show. And I'm so glad I did!

(Actually, Frank complained that Liza here groped him. I believe it!)

The evening started off with a BANG! -- literally! Miss Ouchie Dumpling burst through our front doors brandishing her pink Tommy gun of love, and tassles. All patrons were instructed to keep their yappers shut and their wallets open as she seduced one and all with her persuasive weapon and feminine wiles.

Before we had a chance to catch our breath, Miss Sigourney Farman made her burlesque debut on our stage, and oh-jeez-Louise, what a debut!!! If this is just the start of her burlesque career, I am onboard as a lifelong fan. With a wink and a jiggle, our lovely hostess was down to not much of anything, turning us all into blithering idiots stunned by her beauty and talent.

Well, I assume all were blithering as I was. PaulGoldStar looks fairly composed in spite of his "I just ate the canary" grin.

Ray and Jennifer Corbeau had great front row seats!

Slinky, make-you-feel-dirty tunes were supplied by the incomparable Bosco Rumsford, who also charmed us throughout the show with such bon mots as "Ouchie's got quite the pooper." When the show was over, he played wonderful music for all to enjoy and dance to, once we'd recovered our wits, that is.

And then waddaya know, Nurse Owl popped in for a home visit to innoculate one and all against a most vicious and repugnant disease: Hep Q! She gave us lollipops after poking each of us in the butt with her syringe.

If she was poking us all in the butt, I'm still not sure how Bosco ended up naked on top. Or why he looked so... vulnerable, and forlorn.

Just another night at -The Vault-!

Why should the ladies get all the dough?

Do you fancy yourself the flamboyant, swashbuckling Errol Flynn? Sophisticated cynic William Powell? Troubled, moody teen James Dean? Debonair, charming, and oh-so-handsome Cary Grant?

Then we are looking for you, MR. VAULT!

First Place 3000L
Second Place 1000L
Third Place 500L

On March 25th at 7pm slt, -The Vault- Vintage Jazz Club will be holding the MR VAULT Contest. If you love vintage clothing and have a flare for style with a little imagination thrown in, or if you have a lady in your life who is a whiz at styling and is always helping you look terrific, then this competition is for you! You will strut your stuff on our stage in three different categories in front of our two judges (No, we won't tell you who they are, you greasy weasels! No bribing!):

1st Category: Formal vintage wear
2nd Category: A famous person 20s-60s (chosen by the contest coordinator)
3rd Category: Casual vintage

Remember that while this is all about vintage, you choose where you shop. No specific designers are mentioned. Your clothing may be from any time from 1920s through to the 1960s. You may choose a different era for each category or you may choose the same, it's completely up to you!

For the 2nd category, Sigourney Farnon will be sending a list of famous people and you'll choose from the list who you will be modeling. This will prevent more than one of the same.

There will be 10 contestants, maybe more but no more than 15 will be entering. Entry fee is 150L, paid to Sigourney Farnon. Send Sigourney Farnon a notecard with your full name stating you have sent the entry fee.
