The interweb gurus over a PixelAwards proved they know a great thing when they see it - they've awarded VegasTripping the 2006 PixelAward in the Vegas category. Awards shmawards you say? Well poo poo on you - our little independent mom and pop shop beat out three other multi-national corporations that have more money in the cracks of their couches than we've ever seen in our lives.

Yeah... thats right folks - VegasTripping beat the snot out of FullTiltPoker.com, PartyPoker.com, AND WynnLasVegas.com to bring home the trophy!. I'm sure Steve Wynn is so mad he's gonna put a Picasso in a rear naked choke.

All joking aside, many, many thanks must go to our fabulous team of contributors, programmers, designers, editors and advisors... namely Ace Copland, SleazyRed, don Guido, Hank, Filorobski, El Du, Richie Ravioli, Jacquie O, TseGar, and Mrs. & Mrs. Jackpots.

Props should also go out to some of our most loyal readers ( who've become our friends!) - without y'all we wouldn't do this: Deltacape, Suzi B, Hunter, Mr. & Mrs. Five Hundy, Mike E, Big Dan, Benji K, Vespajet, and Dr. Schwartz.

VegasTripping was launched just over three years ago in the hopes of becoming the "go to" guide for all things Vegas. We aim to tell it like it is, unapologetically, with class, panache and zazz. Since that time we've launched Reno and Atlantic City sites, had a silly awards show in our living room, and have been busting our asses on yet ANOTHER super duper site to be launched soon. We've served up tens of millions of page views, a coupla hundred million hits, just shy of a billion kilobytes of data transfer from about half a million visitors. Never in our wildest dreams did we think that our drunken little dream would reach such statistical heights.

Thank you all for the great run these last two years... but remember, we're only just getting our feet wet. There's a whole lot of living to do.

Congratulations! I knew you could do it. Of all the Vegas websites I've visited yours is best at telling it like it is. Your "cheese factor" ratings alone have saved me from wasting my time and money on some really awful shows. I wish I'd known about Vegas Tripping before I went to see Crazy Skanks I mean Crazy Girls. I may not agree with everything you say (I LIKE the carpet at the Flamingo) but you guys are always original. Keep up the good work.

Congrats!! keep up the good work!!

CONGRTULATIONS VEGASTRIPPING!!!!!!! You guys really have become a great Vegas authority!! And thanks for the shout-out!!!
