July 27, 2013 marks Hard Alley's 7th Anniversary!
Hard Alley would not have lasted this long or be the place it is today without the dedication and support of many people. The following is NOT an all-inclusive list, but it includes key people that have made a difference in the Alley and in my life.

Ananisa Fitzcarraldo - Ana helped run the Alley in the early days and eventually managed my other site, the School Girls Gone Bad Detention Facility.
Calvin Rosca - Great DJ, imaginative builder, and really nice guy with a lovely singing voice.
Candace Flossberg - My ex-wife and all-around sex kitten with a wild sense of adventure and fun.
Cathy - Literally fucked at Hard Alley non-stop until we got on our feet. Once fucked 26 men in one day.

Trixianna Saenz - Former Manager of Hard Core and one of the sexiest DJs ever.
With my memory being what it is, this list is probably missing several key people, and for that I apologize. I will come back and update this list as needed. If you are not on this list and you should be, please don't think that I do not appreciate your friendship or contributions to the Alley.
Hard Alley would not be celebrating 7 years if not for you. Everyone who has enjoyed playing at the Alley, or helped me run it, or given me advice over the years has contributed to making it the place it is today. Hard Alley may be my vision, but I want everyone to feel as if it's their home, and that they are part of it, and not just passing through a bunch of textured prims.
Thank you all.
