Best of 2011 - Aspen the GG way.....

We have been blessed with so many things this year. New fashion, new music, new comers, parties, food, chair lifts, and, more than anything, a NEW ASPEN. We wanted to give you the "Best of Aspen 2011." We have been wandering high and low to scout out the new, best, and most loved in town. Here's a great list for locals, tourists, and the Gatsby. 

Be sure to tell them the Gatsby sent you when you stop by!!!

Best Ski Shop
Are you are ripper? Doubt you can hang with this crew on the mountain but they will have you dialed for anything you need.

Best Rental Shop
Smiles for Miles with this staff of experienced mtn folks. Stop in and bring a 12 pack if you really wanna see some high steppin'.

Best Local's grub
Big Wrap
Babs deserves a medal for all the smiles she makes in town.

Best Gatsby Food
There is not a better plate of food in town than Chef Lanter. 

Best New Spot to Party
The remodel and spacious feel have brought The Regal to the forefront in Aspen. With the Hilton Sisters endorsing the spot you know it's a place for a great time. 

Best Venue
Check out their Calendar for January

Best Addition in the Valley

Best Park
***see below item***

Best New Comer
"Marky Mark" of Snowmass Park/Cats
He finally brought "real jumps" to the Snowmass Park and has been diversifying the rail scene since his start in Ohio. Your excitement level will rise with M&M's new features, hits, and sessions. Thanks Mark for changing it up this year!!!!!

Best Party
It was the Secret Garden of Whoomp that brought us all backside for a get down. It will go do in the books for the best party, sunrises, and memories. Thanks to all that came!!!

Best Drinking spot for Local's
The remodel looks gorgeous and you'll see the crews from around the block in the SQ talking about the day's shred, touching on business, or cracking smiles until the early morn. Stop in and Tell Joel, "Hi."

Best Drink
Moscow Mule
Since Red Bull isn't the best thing for your body in our holistic journey to health. Ginger Ale has now become the way to enjoy the evening without having to stay up and feel horrible the next day. Grab a Gosling's and have a Mule.

Best Fashion

Best Music
This genre of music has brought commercials, festivals worldwide, old & young to unite for whoomp, and has taken many a robot sound to a new level. You've seen it, heard it, probably changed the song or station once this year. DubStep took over......and we enjoyed the adventure.

Best DJ
The First Resident for Grimey Gatsby and known throughout town as 
"The PHD of get down" this one knows how to make you groove.

Dubset Radio - The Grimiest Radio on the Internet

Name: Dubset
Quick Pitch: Dubset is Internet radio for DJ mixes.
Genius Idea: A technology that automatically reports tracks that make up mixes to licensing organizations.

Cloud-based radio services like Pandora are proficient at automatically matching music to moods or genres that their users request. But one particular group of human beings — DJs — has been practicing the same basic function as an art form since music started being recorded. And they would argue that they complete the task with a much higher rate of quality.

Sharing professional DJ mixes on the Internet is risky, however, because there’s no good way to ensure that royalties for each song within the mix will reach the artists that legally deserve them.
Dubset founder Dave Stein set out to solve this issue for the DJs that he often worked with in his former life as a club promoter. After running into prohibitively expensive roadblocks exploring deals with record labels, his team eventually developed a technology that he calls “MixScan.” The technology automatically identifies songs within mixes and then reports them to licensing organizations that collect royalties and distribute them to the artists. It’s like Shazam for DJ mixes.

This technology is the main factor separating Dubset from its most similar competitor, The latter company is based in Austria, and it asks its users to identify tracks within mixes so that it can report them. Stein says that unlike this crowdsourcing approach, MixScan is about 95% accurate. This accuracy takes liability away from brands who might want to advertise on the platform.
But a dubious royalty payment system hasn’t stopped from raking in advertising dollars. Heineken sponsors an entire channel on the beta site.

Another distinction that might prove valuable to Dubset is its focus on high-caliber DJs and clubs. The platform works as a marketing tool for DJs and the venues that they play at. About 500 DJs have set up profiles on the site that include not only their mixes, but the venues where they will be playing next. Those venues are able to promote themselves by posting recorded-live DJ mixes and future lineups on Dubset profile pages. Users can “follow” the DJs and venues they like.

Dubset has already formed a handy site and iPhone app [iTunes link] for pulling up free, professional DJ mixes without feeling like a pirate.

Flat Fitty- The Hat Monopoly is Over!!!

By: JR

Flat Fitty was born from the Lifestyle & Action Sports Industry’s need for the highest quality, no hassle headwear manufacturing. Over the last 4+ years, Flat Fitty has been helping there valued clients design, develop, produce, and deliver the highest quality headwear the industry has ever seen. Gone are the days of super high minimums, order favoritism, and missed shipping windows. Flat Fitty truly understands the Lifestyle & Action Sports industry’s needs, because, they live in it!

Flat Fitty’s reputation for manufacturing and delivering exceptional on time headwear is well-known in the industry today. There client list reads like a who’s who of Lifestyle and Action Sports notables. These brands 100% rely on FF to meet their aggressive delivery dates, allowing them the confidence to accept time sensitive PO’s from their retailers without worry. Most important, FF understands that trust, communication, quality, and respect are the foundation that a trusted supplier/client relationship is built upon.

What distinguishes Flat Fitty from other headwear manufacturers? Ask there 450+ clients in 60 countries that rely on Flat Fitty. They will tell you simply, the quality, the customer service, the communication, and high standard of attention to detail. The kind of attention for detail that is normally reserved for artistic handmade goods, not caps. Flat Fitty products are characterized by a kind of caring for details that most consider insignificant. Most of there brands don’t even notice the headstrong importance we place on those finite details.

In the 2000’s headwear was over produced, bordered on boring. Caps were a mass-branded object rather than a fashion inspired piece. Kicks and denim were being designed to outrageous levels, but headwear had hit rock-bottom. Brands were looking at headwear only as incidentals. Flat Fitty has now changed the way brands look at headwear design. Caps needs to look perfect each and every time you place it on your head … now they can. It is rewarding that our clients distinguish Flat Fitty’s advancements in shape, fabrics, and fit from our competitors.
