Welcome to the official blog for both the Car Wash and The Wash sims in Second Life™. Here you will find information and highlights about All Things Wash including shopping news, event reviews, special features and previews of coming events.
The first thing you will notice when you teleport to Car Wash is our fabulous… (wait for it)… car wash and the Waiting Room Lounge. The scene — as the kids once liked to say — here was inspired from the 1976 film of the same name. In keeping with the theme, visitors are encouraged to rez and drive cars along the streets and to use the drive-through car wash in the back.
Buff and wax your ride out front or walk into the Waiting Room to dance the day and night away in the company of our orange-clad Car Wash Crew hosts. You’ll hear tunes from the era with an emphasis on Funk played 24 hours a day on our exclusive music stream or from our live DJs spinning your requests.
Surrounding the Waiting Room Lounge across the street in any direction you’ll find a vast array of shops and recreation. We love our vendors and in the coming days and weeks we’ll feature some of them right here on the blog. In addition to the stores we have an skate rink and a park — perfect spots for gathering with your friends.
Walk, drive or fly across the bridge to the north to find Hell Bop Bar, SL’s first Psychobilly “dive bar.” Like it’s counterpart in Car Wash, Hell Bop Bar has it’s own unique music stream featuring Psychobilly, Rockabilly and Punk music. This is also the place for special live performances and DJ appearances.
Visitors can play the popular word game “Scramble,” risk their virtual necks on the mechanical bull, dance to the righteous tunes, play darts or belly up to the bar for conversation. There are no official hosts at the bar but you will discover that Hell Bop is the meeting place for a lot of very friendly people. Prepare to be greeted warmly (and often) when a crowd gathers there. Make yourself at home; many of us have.
There are shopping opportunities here as well. Nestled directly next to the bar is Hell Bop Clothing. Pick up an item or two while you’re there and “support your local dive bar” even when you’re away.
Both of our sims have residential sections for pre-fab houses, lots for your own house and a number of trailers if you prefer simpler living in a close community. These properties are extremely popular; vacancies, when they occur, do not usually last for very long. Rentals are first-come, first-served. If you’re interested in living in either of the Washes, check our Rental Office to see what is available or contact Floatie Hock in-world.
Thank you for looking us up. We look forward to seeing you in The Washes.
