The paint is barely dry and the carpeting still has that new carpet smell, but take a look around, won't you? Eater Vegas is live. We're here to dish out the freshest coverage of the Sin City restaurant, dining and nightlife scene and to bring you the news of one of the coolest food cities in the country—no, the coolest food city in the country. We'll also be glad to show the rest of the world that there's more to Las Vegas than neon, strip clubs, gaudy casinos with no windows and clocks and gambling. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Eater Vegas is excited to be joining the Eater National family of sites, including New York, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Miami, Austin, Houston, Dallas, DC, Portland (OR), Boston, Seattle, Atlanta and New Orleans.
So here's a little about me, the editor of Eater Vegas, Susan Stapleton. I’m a freelance writer based in Viva Las Vegas and I’ve been writing for publications such as Haute Living, Vegas Magazine, Las Vegas Magazine and Diamond Cake and even nabbed a gig with Food Network Canada. I moved to Vegas more than five years ago from Philadelphia, a foodie town if there ever was one (and welcome Eater Philly to the mix today as well), where I was the editor-in-chief of Philadelphia Style and D.C. Style magazines. That landed me here, as your Eater Las Vegas editor.
While we want Eater Vegas to be your one-stop shop for all things food and drink in this wonderful city, we won't be able to do it without you, the faithful readers: reader input, comments, rants and raves are our lifeblood. So whether you're friends with someone who works at this, that or the other restaurant and heard the chef de cuisine there quit after refusing to serve mislabeled fish or you just saw a ridiculous piece of signage in front of your neighborhood Roberto’s Taco — or anything else — let us know. Nothing is too small or too weird. We love it all.
Meanwhile, Eater Vegas will be bringing you all the news on restaurant openings, closings and other happenings while also rounding up the best of the local food media, independent blogs and national scoops. But please do not hesitate to hit up our tipline — firstname.lastname@example.org — if you come across anything you think we want to know.
Help us help you. It's going to be a hoot.
