As the balmy remnants of summer are slowly dripping away and we detect a slightly cooler breeze that indicates fall is near, we wanted to give a big thanks to our tipsters before another busy season gets underway. You are our lifeblood. You keep us afloat and in-the-know with your intel and rumormongering, entertained and updated with your rants, photos, and gossip spilling. So, thank you. For all you newcomers, a quick reminder on how you can get involved in all the fun:
Did you spot a new cafe under construction on your block? Have an idea of where the next go-to place will be? Have thoughts on the fried chicken at Michy's or the Red Dragon Roll at Doraku? 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 to DOH missives—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 right to your inbox. It's an Eater smorgasbord out there, and we'd love for you to dig in.
