It is astonishing to think that BGR started eight years ago, and it wouldn’t have existed if not for our great readers, so we wanted to do something special this year. In addition to celebrating our anniversary, we’re also extremely excited to announce that September was our biggest month ever by a mile, and it’s all because of you. As a thank you to our awesome audience, we wanted to throw a party and invite all of you.

We are really happy to also announce an amazing event partner — HTC! In fact, this is such a special event that not only are we giving away a boatload of HTC devices, but it’s also going to be the public’s first chance to get up close and personal with some new HTC products. Plus, food and drinks are on us, so what more could you ask?

The event is scheduled to take place on Thursday October 16th from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at AVENUE at 116 10th Avenue in New York City. We recommend getting there as early as possible.

Sending an RSVP will automatically enter you for a chance to win one of the many HTC devices we’ll be giving away that night, and you can do so by filling out this quick RSVP form. Of course, you’ll have to be present at the event in order to claim your prize if your name is drawn.

This is going to be a fantastic night and we can’t wait to see you guys there, and special thanks again to HTC for always supporting BGR!
