As spring pushes the last remnants of a sorry excuse for a winter away, we figured it was time for a little thank you to 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 craft cocktail bar sprouting up on your block? Have an idea of where the next bowl of ramen will strike? Or maybe you just need to vent in the Eater Complaints Dept. All this and more is very welcome to the tipline; just drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos—from plywood to shutter signage—are especially encouraged. Anonymity guaranteed, of course. And while you're at it, feel free to follow Eater on Facebook or Foursquare 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.
