Eater Denver is here. While we get a whole lot of attention for being the Mile "High" City that's a destination for serious athletes and beer snobs, we're a lot more than that, especially where food and booze are concerned. Yes? Yes. At Eater Denver, you won't find original restaurant reviews, recipes, or food porn; but we'll have you covered with original reporting, user-generated tips, and a curated roundup of what the rest of the restaurant folk around town—and the nation—are talking about. We're joining the Eater family of sites, including New York, Chicago, LA, SF, Miami, DC, Portland, Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Houston, NOLA, Atlanta and Boston.
We'll be giving our all to give you all the news on restaurant openings, closings and other happenings. But do not hesitate to give a shout to the tipline (email@example.com) when you come across things you suspect we'd love to hear. Or even things you think we maybe shouldn't hear. (Hint.)
So here's a little about me, the editor of Eater New Denver, Lauren Hendrick: I fell in love with the energy of restaurants when I was 14-year-old shake mixer at a retro drive-thru. It's that glamorous.
I continued to work in restaurants through high school and college, doing everything from hosting, bussing tables, serving and bartending. Through each experience, I've always been a writer, and most importantly, an eater. My interest in the industry, combined with my English and Journalism degrees, led me to The French Culinary Institute in New York City where I went to school by night while I worked and interned by day. With a new sleeve of burns, I'm home again, lucky to fuse my interests together at Eater Denver.
Enough about me though, let's talk about you.
While we'll work overtime to make Eater Denver your one-stop stop for all things food and drink in this crazy city, we won't be able to do it without you, faithful readers: Reader input, comments, rants and raves are our lifeblood. No opening, closing, back-of-the-house mishap, crazy piece of signage, menu typo, health code violation, celebrity sighting, or wacky rumor is too small or too weird. Actually, the weirder the better. We devour it all. Again: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hit us up, early and often, and while you're at it, connect with EaterDenver on Twitter and Facebook.
So that's about it. This should be a blast, so let's get to it. And away we go.
