BETTER THAN FUUD: Thanks to you

It’s hard to believe that in three short weeks, our site hit 1 million page views.

I joke that it’s my mom hitting the reload button. But really, we know that it’s because of you, our loyal, inquisitive, discerning readers who challenge us to get better every day.

And while we knew that there were thousands of people out there who are reading our content, perusing our photo galleries and complaining about our comments page — hey, we fixed it, right? — we were still floored by the turnout at last night’s official launch party at Ka Restaurant & Lounge.

Hundreds of you stood in line, took my abuse as you signed in and mingled with other like-minded folks — most of whom had Twitter names on their nametags — to support our site.

And honestly, we couldn’t have done it without you.

We are tickled, humbled and, most of all, grateful for your support.

And for those of you who couldn’t make it, here’s what last night looked like, at least from my perspective:

Twitterers unite!
