In real life, temperatures are rising in much of the world as the late spring arrives and summer is around the corner. And in many places nothing quenches the thirst quite like a good ice-cold soda. In Second Life, avatars don't exactly get thirsty, but it can look better if you get something to drink. While there's a few venting machines inworld, they're often just props or have limited interactivity or are "spammy." Recently at Montecito Bay, a new one was introduced made by someone who thought they could be much better: "Red Rocket Cola." It was a fun party with lots of music, plenty of games and prizes, and lots of virtual soda. The Newser was there, and had a word with Eliwood407 Resident, the maker of the dispenser.
