LAist Turned 1

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We just wanted to give a hearty thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us last night! We spent all our booze money and had lots of fun conversations about tae bo, gay Texas Republicans, food thieves, riding the bus, mobile phone companies, reality tv and those pesky local blog rivalries.

Along with about 90% of our contributor staff, we had the go fug yourself ladies, Mike from franklin avenue, Marc of buzznet (and blog blog blog), a little lady red blonde, the Mo in she b mo, a new friend from American Apparel, the 1947 project folks, Rodger Jacobs, Derrek from Step Up Media, cartoonist Donna Barstow, the mister zero you shouldn't f*ck with, some folks from the Times, a gaggle of archivists and a bunch of friends and family.

If we've forgotten you in our list it is only because we're still in the afterglow of vodka and vanity.
