The sun is out for the most perfect time of year in Las Vegas — spring. And that makes it a perfect time to thank our tipsters. You are our lifeblood. You keep us afloat with all of your intel, rumormongering, rants, photos and gossip spilling. Thank you. For all you newcomers, a quick reminder on how you can get involved in all the fun:
Did you spot a new wine bar or restaurant sprouting up on your block? Have an idea of where the new Sammy DeMarco joint or the next up-and-coming restaurant will be? Have you figured out which celebrity chef might be landing in Vegas next? Have thoughts on the menu at Giada or Kerry Simon's Carson Kitchen? Have dish on where John Besh and Aaron Sanchez are opening? Or maybe you just need to vent in the Eater Complaints Dept. All this and more are very welcome on the tipline; just drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos — from plywood to shutter signage to DOH missives — are especially encouraged. Anonymity guaranteed, of course. And while you're at it, feel free to follow Eater Vegas on Facebook or Twitter, contribute to our Flickr Photo Pool, AND/or sign up for the email newsletter. It's an Eater smorgasbord out there, and we'd love for you to dig in.
