Or that's what he told *me* anyway. I now suspect he had an ulterior motive and it was actually the other way around!
Anyway, over two years Old Lar's House has evolved into so much more. It really is a remarkable story in its own right; one I may diary for posterity on this blog at some point.
Last week Old Lar's traffic tipped the psychologically significant 60,000 mark and is now officially the 30th most populated venue in Second Life (SL). Linden Lab have even recognised the The House by listing it on their web-based 'Destinations' feature.
This achievement is even more impressive when you realise that The House is situated on a mainland region (McFarren) and so has a maximum capacity of 40 avatars (unlike a private region which has a 100 avatar capacity).
What makes Old Lar's House so special? What makes it stand out from all the other copycat young-old venues in SL? Indeed, why I am personally proud that Lar chose to sponsor Pixie Rain Productions instead of one of the many other film makers operating in SL?

I love the banter at Lar's, the chitchat, the teasing, the joking and the repartee.
But I love the people the most. This blog-post not only celebrates a two year anniversary, it also celebrates the regulars that frequent Lar's House.
There are far too many people to have captured a picture of each and every one who attended the Anniversary Party. If we missed you, we sincerely apologise. Lar says to let him or I know and we will make sure you get on the Xmas Party blog-post!
After the photographs we have embedded a video of the hugely popular WytchWhisper performing 'Hanky Panky' live at The House last night.
But, before both of those we are pleased to announce a fabulous new competition!
Hidden in amongst the photos that follow is a very special avatar indeed!
As Old Lar's celebrates its second anniversary, this particular avatar celebrates his first ever *DAY* in Second Life!
Yes, its a 'Spot the Noob' competition!

Lar is proud to pronounce that *ALL* correct answers will win a fantastic some-expenses-paid trip to a Second Life Destination of his choice!
