It's a Crazy Mixed Up World

So today is a bit of a big day. You're old pal DBTH is pleased to announce that we are headed over to the Eater family, joining an all star ensemble that is ready to dominate this internet thang. Sure, we've had some kerfuffles, but that's all in the past. Today, we look ahead to the future. Eater re-launched today with both a spiffy new design and a national edition, giving us the chance to bring you even more of the great DBTH action that you have grown to love (or loathe) over the past 2.5 years.

And what a 2.5 years it has been. Not to toot our own hipster, but we certainly shook up the world, creating the go to nightlife website on earth. We said it. Earth. From the Beatrice to the Boom Boom, Avenue to Upstairs, DBTH has been there with the real juice that has what plants crave.

So as we start the next part of this journey, we want to take a minute to thank everyone who has helped get DBTH to this point. We aren't one to name names, but we wanted to take a minute to give thanks:

  • To all of the owners, operators, DJ's, door staff, publicists, bartenders, mixologists, managers, columnists, journalists, bloggers etc etc., thank you for all of your help and continued relationships going forward.
  • To all of the Little Birdys who fill our in box with tips, announcements, photos, gossip, rumors, lies, and general craziness - well, we really couldn't have done it without you. The Birdy Wire will be open forever, so don't go getting lazy on us.
  • A super special shout out to all of our readers, the reason we do what we do. Thanks for the 2.5 years of showing up every day to see what we have to say, and we hope you follow us to our new home.

Most importantly, a hearty congrats and thank you to Team DBTH. There is a lot more to accomplish and bigger dragons to slay. May your cup runneth over and the dream never die.

So update your bookmarks and get ready for Monday. It’s going to be a wild ride.


Humbly and forever,

Can't believe it...I read Eater anyway, but I hope DBTH doesn't change to fit in with the Curbed guys

its all clicks and buzzers

This is the best news I've heard all week! Congrats!

October 2, 2009 at 12:29PM | Unregistered Commenterif the shoe fits

will you still post with the same frequency? where is the nightlife tab on eater? this seems like a shit move

October 2, 2009 at 01:28PM | Unregistered Commenterloyal fan

agreed w "loyal fan" seems as if scott was simply hired to join eater, DBTH dies here then....tell me I'm wrong, please

October 2, 2009 at 01:56PM | Unregistered CommenterHa!

its going to be the exact same thing just on eater. why is that a shit move?

October 2, 2009 at 02:49PM | Unregistered Commentercash money

When is your first posting on eater?

October 2, 2009 at 03:06PM | Unregistered Commenterdrunky

Scott, will you appease our worries here? what is the deal with the change? Can we expect to visit DBTH daily and receive multiple stories each day? It just appears that, with DBTH so well ran, it may actually result in a digression of quality and quantity work.

October 2, 2009 at 03:08PM | Unregistered Commenterloyal fan

The real question we all should be asking ourselves is... What does Abbie Diaz think about all this???? LoL

October 2, 2009 at 03:22PM | Unregistered CommenterWilly Be G

To Loyal Fan and everyone else, be assured our goal is to make sure you get the same great DBTH action you expect, but hopefully amped to the max! Just need a little patience and trust, and all will be glorious.

where is the new column?

October 5, 2009 at 06:56PM | Unregistered Commenterconfused

this eater website is a disaster. it doesn't even properly load, and god knows how to find DBTH.

i highly doubt i'll be able to deal with the load problems to actually make an effort to read...

October 6, 2009 at 12:23PM | Unregistered Commenterword up

atleast sell to someone you trust. your posts on eater will never be the same along with the user comments.

we need a raw platform/site that doesnt sell out and no we do not want to read abbe diaz's bullshit!

scott we miss you!

October 6, 2009 at 03:24PM | Unregistered CommenterITS OVER

congrats i guess, but im going to be selfish here and say - DAMN YOU FOR SELLING OUT - this blows.


October 6, 2009 at 03:31PM | Unregistered Commenteryessss

Will miss the forum

October 6, 2009 at 11:47PM | Unregistered CommenterNYCOracle

Shocking new update:

Money talks. The end. (but hey it was good while it lasted)

October 7, 2009 at 12:15AM | Unregistered Commenterdownsouth

You never posted a link to the new site and after searching Eater I think I found your new spiel, but the RSS feed doesnt work.. OO DBTH where art thou?!

October 7, 2009 at 01:47AM | Unregistered CommenterWhere

left at the right time.... bloggers now have to disclose their ties to any business which would mean scott would have had to reveal that strategic allows him to blow them in exchange for good reviews on DBTH

October 7, 2009 at 10:16AM | Unregistered Commenterwhat a fag

dear "ITS OVER":

firstly, YOU are the one who dragged MY name into this shit, so you can pretty much stick a dick up your ass, fuckwit.

secondly, what exactly is there to sell, nimrod? the name? the URL? the lot of idiotarded knuckle-dragging ignorant commentators like YOU, dumbass?
don't be mad just cuz "my bullshit" consists of commentators who are ALL insiders, and who ALL actually know of what they speak, and wouldn't EVER tolerate the presence of a jackholed know nothing whiny fuckface like you.

thirdly, since "Willy Be G" was kind enough to ask, i think this kinda sucks. i will miss DBTH too. but surely your stupid whiny assed insubstantial bullshit isn't going to change anything around here.
so why don't YOU go build a "raw platform/site that won't sell out" then, you worthless contemptible insignificant whiny assed bitch.

lastly, go fuck yourself.

October 7, 2009 at 11:01AM | Unregistered Commenterabbe diaz

abbe diaz, i bet youre a wild fuck... lets go out sometime

October 7, 2009 at 11:42AM | Unregistered CommenterITS OVER

October 12, 2009 at 03:23PM | Unregistered Commenterwhaaaa

October 12, 2009 at 03:27PM | Unregistered CommenterAdrock

October 13, 2009 at 11:42AM | Unregistered Commenterfail

You're still a douche bag.

October 15, 2009 at 08:31PM | Unregistered CommenterGolden Jew

October 19, 2009 at 07:47PM | Unregistered Commenterfuckedup

Or you could all just keep posting nightlife gossip here in the comments.

I heard Matt Levine is looking for a new partner over at The Eldridge.

(see how easy that was? obviously not true btw)

how to repair your credit? If you find any errors on any of your credit reports, then you will need to contact the reporting agency and dispute it. You will need to provide evidence to support your claims. This can include copies of canceled checks, receipts, etc. If you can prove your claim, then your report will be corrected.
