    Default Post #10,000

    That's a lot posts. And makes me thing back to 8 years ago when Gus offered me $1000 to write a Spring Break Guide for the site, the first time anybody paid me to write anything. And thank you guys for that, this is, and will always be, where I got my start.

    In 8 years we've been through a lot, from the house in Little Haiti (that's Midtown now) to the offices in South Beach, down to Palmetto Bay. We've seen members of the community come and go, we've seen an engagement, a couple of new babies and even, sadly, lost a friend along the way. Pour out a Bookers for Fred Garvin when you get a chance.

    It feels like we don't all see each other as much as we used to. That's kinda sad, since most of us are still in the area. But as the company, our families, and our careers grow, that stuff is kinda inevitable. We still have the forums to keep us connected, and I still enjoy coming on here every day to talk Miami. That's one of the things we do best.

    Thanks again to everyone for an enjoyable 10,000 posts. And a big giant thanks to Gus and Michelle who gave the world this website. It's been a life preserver for many of us during tough times, and we all owe you forever.

    Matt

    10,000 posts?! You beat me!!! We had a bet, and of course now I don't recall what the winner got.

    I am a little behind in posts but only started writing in 2009 after finding this site when all I wanted was to move here in 2008. Oh and you were rude to me in my first post.

    I just had dinner with Gus and Michelle this evening, and tell them often, you guys are one of the biggest influences in my life. I am so glad they made this website.

    As for bob here... well dude you are my ex husband through and through. I love and hate Miami with you, shared many Ultras with you, thank you for writing White Dade and helping me though so many boring days at work, thank you also for sleeping with nearly ALL my friends. We've shared bottle service, tennis matches, Facebook stalking and Chippendale shows. We've co-parented fish. You're one of the few Americans that get my British sense of humor. And all cos you post in this forum. Those 10k posts have a lot to answer for.

    Love you more xox

    Wow, Matt, you made me want to cry. Words can't express how honored I feel - probably because I am not much of a writer

    You guys all make it what it is and we appreciate you so much! You are right that we don't get together as much as we should but there is not a day that goes by that you are not on our minds. This site is our first baby.

    Marc - let's do it! It's been WAY too long and fried chicken is Gus' favorite. But seriously, it's on us

    Jess, you will catch up soon...

    Love you guys!!

    I have to say, Doug was my biggest influence. He doesn't visit the site much anymore as he is now in LA, but he was so helpful when I moved. Oh, that and the INFAMOUS story of sungal...

    Sungal is finally here. I love it!

    Gus / Matt / Everyone else..Are we definitely doing the 12th? Let me know asap or I'm going this Wednesday..Diet is over and I'm dying for some Fried Chicken.

    They don't open until 6 so that's probably the best time to go so we aren't waiting too long for our re-orders :-)

    They open at 6pm so it gives us 5 hours to eat chicken :-)

    I prefer earlier as well..
