We paid Levane Estate in Palmana (previously featured on day 106 and also seen in the bonus shot on day 125) a visit again last night. The bar we're occupying here is the same one you can see in the last day 106 screenshot (and the second-to-last one, in the background).
I've always had an affinity for bars for some reason, at least in Second Life. When BG had a nice one before it was gutted, I often used to hang out there, usually behind the counter, acting as the resident bar tender. Since the character I was playing at BG was from a more tribal society that was not so intimately familiar with modern technology and civilization, I could get away with quite a few unusual and unexpected actions — fun fun. :)
The bar here in Levane Estate is nice, too; quite shady if you turn on Lighting/Shadows, but maybe that's not so bad. The sun's enough to fry your brain there — not that that'd affect me. c.c
I also rather like the design with the fish tank built into the counter. The ball floating there is a poseball, BTW, entitled "Coyote bar girl" — and just as I suspected, it made you perform a cute routine that one might call a pole dance if it weren't for the lack of a pole, a direct reference to Coyote Ugly. (Great movie, BTW; I think I saw it at least five times in one week when it was in cinemas.)
Amusingly, BTW, the fishing game thing that you can also find in Palmana had two visitors again when we arrived there last night, patiently casting their lines and hoping for the big catch. Why do people spend their time that way? Logging on to SL to meet up and chat with friends, to RP, to explore and see interesting things, all that I can understand — but those games are just gamified time sinks, and virtual ones for that matter. Ah well, to each their own.
As for the bar, like the late Sihasapa, it's one of those places you really sort of wish was real — although the properties that make it so nice, like the quietness and calm and lack of people, would not survive the transition to real life, obviously.
