Hey, shorty, it's our birthday (shorty)! Gothamist is very happy that we're at this tremendous milestone, the Terrible Twos, and want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement. We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into on that fateful day(s - we had a beta period), and we're glad, because it's been an incomparable two years. For starters, Gothamist is just getting comfortable in talking English better - maybe someday we'll figure out this whole spelling thing!

Gothamist is pleased with our past year's accomplishments, from adding many wonderful editors and contributors for more expansive coverage to growing out -ist/-est empire to span nine cities in the U.S. and abroad. But there's a lot more Gothamist can do. We hope you stick with us as we work on making the site even better.

You can celebrate with us tonight at the Knitting Factory, for another evening of music with Movable Hype 2. Not only will there be some hot music from Elkland, The Information,Other Passengers, and The Cloud Room, but we'll have a Happy Hour ($200 worth of drinks while they last), some t-shirts to give away, and cupcakes from sugar sweet sunshine bakery, too. Cupcakes, people...cupcakes!

We hope to see you there.
