Spotlight on Eclipse Restaurant- A private Fine Dining Experience in SL - SLE REPORTING


Fine dining became a thing way back in the late 1700s in France. A Swiss developer by the name of Cesar Ritz partnered with a prominent French Chef at the grand hotel of Monte Carlo. I know this is useless information for a virtual restaurant but cool facts to know the next time you are fine dining and want to spark up a fruitless conversation. If it wasn't for Mr. Ritz and his buddy Auguste, we might all still be eating with our mouths rudely opened and using our hands being all uncivilized. Here we are almost 300 years later and we now have virtual restaurants where you can’t eat actual food but you can pretend you can and lives your best virtual life being able to afford to foot the bill for yourself and all your friends. Even impress your date with a fancy fine dining experience under the stars.


The SL Enquirer met up with Alassra, the owner of Eclipse Restaurant. It is the newest fine dining venue on the grid boasting a beautiful landscape that stands out in the midnight setting. There are different setups you can choose from, each with its own theme. It’s not open to random foot traffic though. You have to make a reservation!




Interview with Alassra (xalassrax)

 

 

SLE: HI Alassra, it’s a pleasure to meet you. Can you tell our readers where you are from and how you discovered Second Life?

 

Alassra: Hi Lanai!  It's a pleasure to meet you also, thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today!  I am from the US, in the state of Illinois and I have been a gamer for a long time, originally starting back with Ultima Online ages ago!  From there I explored various other games and spent a lot of time on IMVU before finding my way to Second Life.  It actually took several years and the Covid pandemic for me to find the patience and time to really sit down and try Second Life.  I would always get instantly turned off by how difficult, or so I thought back then, it was to just get dressed.  However, once Covid hit and shut everything down for so long, I was looking for some form of substitute for some of the things I missed being able to do in RL, such as going out to movies, shopping, dinners, and dancing, etc.  That is what brought me to really sit down and put effort into trying Second Life.  IMVU lacked that ability to go to a mall and walk around browsing, trying things on, buying what you want since theirs was just a "shop", but Second Life gave that feel of something with a little more realism, since I could go to a "mall" and walk around with friends, trying on different things in a "dressing room", and just have that aspect of Roleplay that helped ease the lack of socializing and activity that RL was missing at the time due to the pandemic.  I just wish I had taken the time sooner, rather than it taking a pandemic and shut down of everything to get me to give Second Life a real chance!

 

SLE: The pandemic has certainly breathed new life into Second Life for many. Since we all have felt the effects of lockdowns. Missing our friends and families and even catching covid or losing loved ones to this terrible pandemic.  SL certainly gave many of us a form of social life and normalcy even if virtually. Roleplay Restaurants and dining services are a perfect example and a fun way to be social, go on dates, gather with friends, and even host business meetings. What inspired you to get into the virtual hospitality industry here in Second Life?

 

Alassra:  Yes!  They truly are!  Especially when RL doesn't always allow for those activities!  When Valentine's day 2021 rolled around, we were almost a full year into the shutdowns from Covid.  As I was browsing through things on Second Life, I found a post about Valentine's Dinner/Event, and I immediately went to the Sim location to check out the special dinner details.  I ended up purchasing not only a dinner reservation for myself and my husband, but also for my sister and her date!  I also ended up applying for a job at the business.  It was Serendipity's Weddings & Events, and I booked several RP dinner's there during my time on staff.  Serendipity's, unfortunately, closed its doors on March 31st this year, and it was that event that convinced me to open Eclipse.  I was sad to see such an amazing RP experience go, and while I enjoyed working as a wedding coordinator, it was partaking in the dinners that were my favorite part, my husband and I had several dinners there, we even had a family dinner event this past December that was amazing!  I wanted to continue to give Second Life a place that offered at least some of the magic that it would miss with Serendipity's closure. 

 



SLE: Absolutely! Can you tell our readers about Eclipse Restaurant and what services it provides the Second Life community?

 

Alassra: Oh I would love to!  Eclipse Restaurant is a place where you can plan a special night with your partner, your family, or a group of friends.  Something that gives more than just a "night out", we give our guests an experience that they will enjoy and remember.  We are all experienced in this industry, as well as being experienced in Roleplay, therefore we provide a full service, Roleplay aspect to your night out!  Our guests are asked several questions upon booking any of our packages in order for us to ensure that we have all the fine details needed to ensure that we give them a magical evening!  We have 3 different dinner venue options to choose from, giving our guests their choice between dinner at the beach, in the forest, or in a more elegant/formal venue.  We customize the color of the flower arrangements, and table settings to color(s) picked by the guest, and if there are any special events, we are sure to acknowledge it so that our guests know our staff is celebrating with them!  We have several different packages to choose from, and pricing that is fair and affordable!  We can also customize packages for our clients, if there are certain aspects they want in one package, but not other items in the package, we will work with each client to ensure that we provide what they are looking for in their Roleplay dining experience!  We can serve a small, romantic dinner for 2, or a large group event dinner service!  Our staff will always be professional in attire as well as behavior, and they will always provide an amazing roleplay experience.  We also have 3 options for arrival to the dinner venue that our guests have picked, including our very popular scenic Steam Coach flight!  This allows us to give our guests an even more memorable evening as they are flown over the restaurant in a short little tour before landing to begin their dinner. 

 



SLE: I love that you offer customizable options for your guests. I can see many different ideas visitors can come up with for special occasions. Do all your guests need a reservation? If so, how can they request one?

 

Alassra: Yes, we do require reservations at Eclipse.  This is due to us providing a private fine dining experience, rather than a more public, open dining venue.  We want to ensure that our guests can enjoy their evening in a more secluded, intimate environment versus a busy public restaurant type of venue.  We do have several ways that reservations can be made - you can purchase your package choice from one of the signs in our shop, or from the self-service kiosk at the shop, which will guide you to filling out the reservation form, either of these options will have a member of staff reach out to you and complete the reservation process.  Or you can book directly with a member of staff if one is available at the shop.  You can also contact me, or my assistant manager, ASH (tiptonik) in world via NC and we will get back to you ASAP to get your reservation setup!  We try to make sure that we have several options to make it as easy as possible for our guests to reserve a night in one of our beautiful dining venues. 

 

SLE: That’s great you plenty of options to make it easy for guest to book their special dining experience. During the tour, I saw you have some private locations for romantic dining. Can you share with us what each one represents?

 



Alassra: We have 3 beautiful private dining venues for our guests to pick from, and our servers have uniforms that were made with each venue in mind to add to the experience.  Our first dinner venue is the Beach venue and it is a little more carefree and relaxing in design than our other venues.  It puts the guests up in the air floating near the waterfall, able to view down to the little beach and waterway below.  It represents that feeling of class, and formality but with a little mix of carefree and boho added in.
Our next venue is our Forest dinner venue, and it is right in the middle of the forest, hidden amongst the trees, butterflies, unicorns, and just all the magical beauty that nature gives us.  It represents the feel of getting all dressed up but in a way to also enjoy and celebrate the amazing beauty of nature.
Our final venue is the Elegant/Formal dinner venue, which sits atop a giant pillar overlooking our large stage area.  It represents the traditional concept of the "date night" or "night out", where one would get all dressed up, and go for something formal, elegant, and classy and just pay homage to the traditional "night out" celebration.  This allows us to have something for just about everyone, whether they are just looking for a more carefree, relaxing experience, something in between, or the full-on elegant, formal experience.

SLE: All three are beautiful designs! What other amenities and events do you host on the sim aside from a fine dining experience?

 

Alassra:  That is a wonderful question, Lanai!  We do have several amenities and events on our Sims.  I say Sims because we have a "sister" Sim just below us on the map!  The Deviant Dragon Sim hosts Eclipse Restaurant & Events, it also is the home of the Dragon's Tail Tavern, which hosts several live singers regularly including Clairede Dirval, Essence, and Rocky TooCool!  We host holiday events in the tavern as well and have various contents there.  We also have the MilkyWay Skating & Arcade Hub located on the Sim, and it is getting ready to celebrate an 80's night on the 14th of this month!  There will be a Best in 80's outfit contest too!  The Deviant Dragon Sim also is where you can find the Dragon's Tail riding track, The Dragon's Dream Reiki & Tarot Spa, Lunation, and several other mall shops!  So there is always something to do, from mini-golf and skating, to live concerts, dining, shopping or just relaxing on our Adults Only beach area on the other side of Eclipse!  Our sister sim, Deviant Tranquility is an adults-only relaxation experience, with every aspect built with adults in mind.  You can relax at the beach, explore the crystal caves, camp out in the forest, or explore your adventurous side at Eden, the BDSM club.  So we definitely have a lot to offer our guests!  And both Sims do offer event hosting/setup services too!

 



SLE: Wow you have a lot going on! I love the 80’s so I’ll have to come to those events. Can you tell our readers why you created this sim? Did you see a niche needing to be filled? Or was this just a dream of something you wanted to create?

 

Alassra: When we started with Deviant Tranquility, it was to create a relaxing, adults-only hub that could be an escape and our own little piece of paradise.  As time went on, there was a need for more space and offerings, so Deviant Dragon was created.  My husband loves to DJ and loves all types of music, however, he would frequently get frustrated with a lot of restrictions at many clubs already out there in Second Life, so the Dragon's Tail Tavern was born, and became his own little space to host singers, DJ, and hold events and parties at.  After Serendipity closed down, I definitely felt the void that the loss of their restaurant services left for myself and others, and that is what led to a more focused drive with the Sim, and a desire to create this place that would provide various activities in one spot, whether it was a date night experience with a full-service roleplay aspect, or games, mini-golf, skating, shopping, dancing, or relaxing on a beach.  We just wanted to expand and having 2 Sims allowed this opportunity for us to do so.  We have something for everyone essentially!  Therefore filling all the little niche areas that we saw needing work, and creating something wonderful we could share with others in Second Life at the same time!

 

SLE: You and your team did an amazing job creating a romantic almost whimsical destination for a nice quiet evening under the stars. It takes a team of dedicated people to keep things running perfectly. Did you build the sim on your own or did you have a team of people helping? If so, who are they?

 



Alassra: Thank you so much, Lanai!  I definitely had help!  None of it would have been possible without my husband, Sarlorn (calimar).  He is such a creative person and always has the best ideas for layouts and amazing taste!  He is extremely picky so he really takes his time as he works on a project, so everything I found or set up, I would always run by him to get his opinion on.  He worked extremely hard on the Sim, and got everything set up with me, every step of the way!  My sisters, Scarlet (XxHoneyBadgerxX) and AllieCay Littlepaws were also instrumental in getting things together.  They were the ones that encouraged me to give Second Life a try and helped me learn the aspects of Sim setup, and they built Deviant Tranquility in all of its beauty from the ground up to what you see today!  They laughed when I accidentally retiled the grass with a shopping ad texture and showed me how to fix it, they never berated me for mistakes I made as I was learning and building, so they were a huge part of getting Eclipse coming to be.  I can't forget my wonderful niece, ΛSH (tiptonik), who has been a HUGE help with getting Eclipse going, and the Deviant Dragon Sim put together.  She is the Eclipse Assistant Manager, and helps keep my head on straight when dealing with the admin side of things!  She helpls reign me in when I get too overzealous with my shopping/decorating ideas too!  Ha!  She has not been on Second Life for very long, but she has learned so much, so fast, I trust her completely with decorating, setup, running Eclipse, etc.!  I also couldn't keep Eclipse going without the wonderful staff team that has stepped up to help undertake this venture - Dr Hikiera (hikiera) and Lunastra Blackwood, two of our servers; cσσкıe Sereηα Mυɴѕтer (cooooookiecrips) one of our amazing photographers; and two of our amazing DJ's, Tαm Lılıth Dαlgααrd (tamiqua.cheng) and ღ Hailey Day Rollins ღ (haileyday).  We would not be here without this amazing team of people!

 

SLE: It is very important to have a “tribe” of supportive friends in Second Life. It can be very difficult having to manage everything yourself so I’m so glad to hear that! Are you currently hiring? And if so, for what positions?

 

Alassra: We are!  We are hiring roleplay servers, DJs, sales reps, and photographers for Eclipse, and we also have spots for DJs and hosts at the tavern!  We also have several positions in general for the Sim.  Our application can be found at: https://forms.gle/H6ExNeZnrPbjtGsh8

 

SLE: It was an absolute pleasure interviewing you Alassra, We wish you the very best with Eclipse and your sister Deviant Tranquility sims.  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?



Alassra: I would just like to tell them that if they are looking for a wonderful date night, family night, friends night out, or dinner event of any type to come to check us out!  We are extremely flexible and we will do what we can to set up exactly what you are looking for in your dining/event package!  We have several other activities on the Sims, and I encourage them to check out both places, and explore all that the Deviant Sims offer, outside of Eclipse Restaurant!

FRANKS: SERVING THE SL COMMUNITY FOR 15 YEARS – JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING




No exposé’ on popular romantic sims in SL would be complete without including the various iterations of Franks that are to be found by the intrepid entertainment aficionado.  Long a mainstay of the “Fine Dancing” genre, Franks Entertainment Group, consisting of five separate entertainment venues, ranks among the finest on the grid.  

While attending a Tina Turner tribute concert a few nights ago, I happened upon Mr. William Zeta, Owner of Franks Entertainment Group.  While Miss Turner was off-stage changing costumes, I managed to corral Mr. Zeta and ply him with questions about this most remarkable and Iconic venue.

Josh (Thomas 1 Bellic)  (JB)  Hi William. Thanks for agreeing to chat with me. What a gorgeous place you have here. Frank's Elite has long been iconic among the fine dancing venues in SecondLife. How did you happen to get involved in this business?

William Zeta (WZ):   Thank you very much. Frank's Entertainment Group (FEG) has a very long tradition in second life. Fortunately, from the beginning, I've been part of that (some as inspiration but mainly as a silent partner paying tier fees). For example, folks might not know, Sphynx Jazz Club was where Nanceee (the original founder and sole owner) first danced in SL, my home SL became what is Frank's Elite today, and my home's name Chateau d'Sphynx inspired the name for our famous dining experience—Chateau d'Elite.   And, when Nanceee left, she handed the baton to me. 

I'm proud of the history of Frank's Entertainment Group and excited about the future of Frank's. 


JB:  I understand Frank's Elite is not the only venue you manage. In fact, I have heard there are actually five main venues. Tell me about those please?

WZ:  Frank's has been in existence for 15 years now. We have seen many copy our name, even use our builds, and tag our name in their social media to use all the good nature and experiences we have built over time. But I would like to clear up some misinformation; all of our venues have been in continuous operation, are open, and are the first of their kind venues and experiences in Second Life:

·         Frank's Jazz—This venue is open to all, with DJs, live singers, and an event or two poolside (don't miss the Playdolls monthly pool party:).

·         Frank's Elite Jazz—Our private club with events and shows for members only.

·         Bogart's Karaoke Bar & Cafe—Our fun and informal space that releases the singing performer in you.

·         Sphynx Jazz—Our small intimate performance venue, with the tagline, "bring your ID, not your EGO."

·         Chateau d'Elite—Our private dining venue

We also have many smaller spaces to enjoy from Nina's Hall, Chez Frank, Elite's Chapel, Frank's Jazz Pool & Beach, etc.

JB:  Surely an operation this size is more than a one-man show. Who are some of the key folks who help in sim development and management?

WZ:  “Man show” is probably the wrong gender! We have a great team of women that are inspiring! First is Ms. Persia, our GM, and my right (also left) hand woman. She has an incredible work ethic and attention to operations that allow Frank's, to be Frank's. Sphynx Jazz Club is run by Ms. Yukie Le.   Ms. Pru is our decorating expert. DJ Patrick produces CUTS. DJ Filo focuses on marketing. And, our builds are done by Mr. Wetherby. Ms. Nina, Ms. Tali, Ms. Quinn, Ms. Rosa, Ms. Ninette, Ms. Jenn, Ms. Rati, and Ms. Jolie are critical parts of our management team. And we're excited that Ms. Petra Steele recently joined us, focusing on creating new types of events.    Talk about a powerhouse team!   And, of course, our team is supported by many wonderful hosts, DJs, and live singers! 


JB:  So…what is it that makes your venues different from all the other Dance venues out there?

WZ:  We never forget who is first and foremost in our minds every day. All our decisions begin with and end with how this benefits those who visit our venues. In fact, I spend a significant amount of time talking with members about their experiences. They have taught me much. We know that people feel better when they leave our venues. It is always reassuring to hear from our VIPs, members, and guests who say their first or significant second life events happen at a FEG venue.

Another key difference is that our purpose is the experience in our venues and the quality of our services. I mean, look at our team! Have you ever seen a large and talented group like ours focusing on guests and members? That's their sole job. That's meant to engage and delight! 

Lastly, we invest heavily in developing our own technology specific to our venues. For example, none of the karaoke systems were available as simple and easy to use for streams and voice, so we wrote our own.   We use a new event production system for CUTS and new immersive shows. Stop by Nina’s Hall to see what I mean:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Franks%20Jazz%20Club/68/82/24  There is a lot behind the scenes, such as a custom loyalty program--Frank's Star Points, and so much more.

JB:  I understand you also have a Loyalty Program? Tell me about that, please?

WZ:  This is another exciting innovation, and nothing like it existed in SL before. Today our guests collect Frank's Star points by visiting and engaging in our venues. You can use those Star points toward services, such as our award-winning Chateau d'Elite dining experience, Forevermore Weddings, gift certificates, flowers, and various cute and fun gift items. You use our STAR point vendors like you would use $L in vendors you are used to seeing. But that's just the beginning. The future is exciting as we focus on the total experience and have the capability to build a unique experience for our VIPs and members.   Our guests and members create value for themselves just by engaging with our venues.


JB:  I imagine there must be a lot of details to take care of in managing an operation of this magnitude. How do you prioritize them all?

WZ:  Frank's has been great at creating safe and engaging spaces for folks in Second Life for over 15 years, always honoring our past while innovating and changing continuously. You know you are successful when there are many copy-cat clubs out there. We've never worried about copy-cats. Instead, we focus on what we bring today and how we innovate in the future.

Creating the musical experiences, we have a great lineup of live singers and DJs that call our venues home. Many performers partner with us and work collaboratively on supporting and improving their show in ways that go beyond just their performance. 

Lastly, but equally important, is a safe environment and memorable experience for our guests and members ensured by our fantastic staff. They make all the difference.

To put it simply, our priority in order is VIPs, Members, Guests, Entertainers, and Employees.  

JB:  And what of the future? Any new developments on the horizon. Or additional Venues planned?

WZ:  I'm excited by all the focus on metaverses in the tech world. We are in the initial stages of leveraging the new tech we created last year. We will push that as far as we can, creating unique experiences! We will be producing new types of entertainment (more on that soon)! And a new venue? Hmm... possibly!  

 

JB:  Is there anything else you would like to share with our SL Enquirer readers?

WZ:  We have some great events coming up! 

NEW!! SpinMasters DJ—A fun competition between DJs. March 27th at 7PM-9PM. Poolside at Frank's Jazz. Smart casual and swimwear are recommended. You should soon see an announcement of our competing DJ's.

Saint Patrick's Weekend—Irish fun from March 17th to March 20th in all venues. It's not just a day for us, but an entire weekend! Dress like a Leprechaun.

Our 15th Anniversary Celebration. June 19th at all of our venues! A fantastic run enjoyed by so many guests, members, staff, and owners!


So, there you have it folks,  Grab your dance partner – or meet one there – and head on over to a Franks Entertainment Group venue for what is truly destined to be a Night to Remember.  Even if you used to go there, but haven’t lately,  give them a look-see.  It will be well worth your time.

Be There!

Aloha!

JB

Spotlight on Everlasting- A Sim Featuring Everlasting Love Wedding Services and Latitude Landing Romantic Waterfront Dining at its Best in Second Life- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…






In Second life there are plenty of breathtaking landscapes to explore and a variety of activities that cater to many interests. For those looking for the perfect place to say your “I Do’s” or go on a romantic date, Everlasting Sim is the place to go.
Owned and operated by єσηα (leona.kitty) and Lizzybright who brought their business expertise together to bring residents of Second Life a full service sim.  Lizzybright is a Wedding Service provider offering not only on Sim full service weddings but off sim wedding services as well.  єσηα is a live full service restaurant owner who caters to romantic dinners, business lunches, family dinners, special events, catering, pretty much anything you can think of. She will cater to your specific needs and will bring your special RP dining experience to life.
Another exciting event coming  is The new TV Station OffBeat has asked єσηα to be the primary sponsor for their new dating show "Heart to Heart" which means all dates will come to Latitude Landing Restaurant and be filmed!
The SL Enquirer met up with єσηα (leona.kitty) to learn more about Everlasting Sim

Interview with єσηα (leona.kitty) and Lizzybright



Wedding Venues and Restaurants have been in Second Life since its early days.  They are a great for, of course, getting married as well as gatherings with friends or spending some private time with your significant other while involving some role-play for authenticity. What inspired Latitude Landing Restaurant and Everlasting Love Wedding Services and what makes it unique from other romantic venue locations in Second Life?

єσηα: I grew up in the "theme park" industry and my work ethic is all about providing exceptional guest service every time. So I wanted to bring that into SL and incorporate that into something that I thought was a great idea. I have seen so many couples meet in Second Life over the years and some go on to real life relationships. But during those times they live states or even countries apart, why not provide them with the most realistic dating experience possible?
Lizzybright: I have always wanted to do weddings in SL and creativity is one of my strongest suits. I love to make people happy and what better way to do all of that than custom weddings? I believe that Everlasting Love Weddings is unique because we really go above and beyond to make every single wedding unique and totally customized so it is not like any other wedding.



When was Everlasting Sim established and what type of  services do you offer your guests?

єσηα: Although we both have several years of experience in what we do, we each launched our businesses in March of 2016. We ended up meeting in July and chose to join forces and bring both businesses to one sim and work with each other in August. The greatest thing about both of our businesses is that we personalize the experience to meet the guest’s requests. Down to the flowers, fireworks, candles, banners, music... you name it, we provide it! We both seem to run off of the same ethics and focus on the best guest service you can imagine.

How long does the role-play experience normally last?

єσηα: A typical dinner usually lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour. But again, we personalize each experience and if we have guests that want to go faster or slower, we will accommodate.
Lizzybright: A wedding can last as little as 15 minutes but the planning that goes behind it is where we really become involved in the process. We can realistically plan a wedding in a day but prefer to have a few weeks so we can have time to add all of those special touches.

What are the options you have available?

єσηα: We currently have tables set up for 2 or 4 guests in private gazebos. We also have an indoor area for larger parties or business meetings. As well we do Special events and catering, such as wedding rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, office luncheons, birthday parties.... really any occasion you can think of and again, we personalize the entire experience and set up to the guests needs.
Lizzybright: We have 6 different Wedding Packages for couples to choose from as well as Additional Services. And even with the purchase of a wedding package we still make sure that we assist the couple the best we can by making everything as customizable as possible. We also offer over 20 wedding venues and do custom builds as requested.


Do guest have to make a reservation to experience the full experience at Everlasting Sim?

єσηα: While we do highly recommend reservations, if a server is available, we can accommodate walk ins. Guests will typically purchase a gift card for the dinner of their choice (2 or 4 guests) and then fill out a reservation request card and drop that in our mailbox. We get back to them within 24 hours to confirm. But again, if the guest is a walk in, they can check our online indicators to see if we have an available server online. During holidays we suggest reservations to reserve the table.
Lizzybright: We do have the capability to do a walk in “Elopement” if the correct staff members are available. But yes of course we need a guest to book in advance so we can have the proper time to plan and put together a dream wedding.

What are your hours of Operation and who can guests contact for reservations?

єσηα: We do not have set hours of operation as we understand that people from all over the world are in Second Life. This is why we do our best to hire servers from all time zones and have their online indicators set up to help guests at any time, day or night. As well, we have Management online indicators up as well. There are very few times you will not find at least a few of us online.
Lizzybright: No set hours of operation and we have the ability to do a wedding anytime, day or night. We have online indicators set up so guests can contact us at any time.


What are the packages you offer and pricing? Do they include a tip?

єσηα: We currently only have 2 basic dinner packages. Each are three course meals. (For a party of 2 $500L and For a party of 4 $900L) The dinner packages do not include a tip so we respectfully ask that the guests take care of their servers.
Lizzybright: We have 6 Wedding Packages that range from $2000L up to $28500L. The packages have loads of great items included and the couple can choose exactly what they need.

This service would make a perfect wedding or engagement gift for a couple.  Do you offer gift certificates?  If so, how can guests redeem them for services?

єσηα: Yes! This is absolutely a fantastic gift to give the new couple! All of our gift cards are transferable so anyone can come by, purchase one and give it to someone as a gift.
Lizzybright: We have actually just started including a complimentary dinner at Latitude Landing in some of our Wedding Packages so the new couple can go enjoy a dinner during their honeymoon.


Can you share with our readers what a typical Wedding and fine dining experience would be like?

єσηα: The guests are greeted at the Front entrance of the restaurant and escorted to a private gazebo on the water. Once seated the server will go over a quick explanation of what will take place and takes the drink orders. After returning with the drinks, the server follows with the appetizers, main dish and dessert. During this entire experience the server is providing exceptional guest service accompanied with their best role play experience. And example of this might be: "Leona peeks in hoping not to intrude and begins to gather up the plates and sets them off to the side as she sets down the Main Dish.. "How where the appetizers?" ... Do you both need another drink?" She smiles as she asks."
After the dinner service is complete the guests are welcome to dance on the docks over the water while listening to special music they might have requested or watching fireworks they requested.
Lizzybright: From the moment a couple walks in the front door they feel welcomed and cared for. We answer every question that they have and try to get to know the couple a bit so we can be able to offer venues that would interest them. Once the couple has shared that information we show them a few venues until they find the perfect one and we then discuss colors, flowers, etc. Once the couple has booked a wedding with us, they will complete an information form which helps our wedding coordinators to put together the wedding of their dreams. The wedding coordinator and owner will oversee the entire process step by step all the way through until the reception is over. Making the entire experience not only as stress free for the couple but a memory that will last forever.

What type of entertainment do you provide for your guests?

єσηα: With each Reservation Request form the guest has a section where they can request "anything" and entertainment is something they could possibly request but some items may be an additional charge.
Lizzybright: We will include any type of entertainment that the couple would like to have as a part of their wedding.

Do you offer live music or DJ’s that cater to Special parties and Receptions?

єσηα: We have actually been looking into Live Music on sim but this would probably be something that would be offered during holidays when the restaurant is busiest or upon special request.
Lizzybright: We have several DJs on staff that stream during our weddings and receptions. We also have the capability to offer Live music upon request.


Keeping a Wedding venue and restaurant open and available to residents in every time zone can be a challenge, do you have a full staff on hand or are you currently hiring?
єσηα: Yes, as I mentioned earlier, we make it a point to hire staff from all around the world to help cover most hours. While this is not always possible, we do our very best. And we are always open to hiring the right people and we always keep an application box up.

Is there anything else about Everlasting Love Wedding Services & Latitude Landing Restaurant that you would like to share with our readers?
