I did read Jacquilynne's comment that CH is not particularly looking for suggestions about new boards, thank you very much ! a little nanny-like but then I don't have the hassle of moderating !
It does strike me as a bit bizarre that Vegas, which has emerged as THE foodie destination in N America - hell, one of the top in the world - for serious cuisine - is merged with the large and prosperous SW markets when it really does deserve its own board. After all, we (meaning the millions of tourists a year) come to Vegas for Vegas. Phoenix and the other locations on the SW Board are of course important destinations too, for locals as for tourists, but a distinct market.
It would, selfishly speaking, be a lot more convenient to scroll down and participate in/learn from all-Vegas discussions on a dedicated board than to sort through the rest of the SW now interspersed with it.
My two cents worth, anyway...I doubt mine is the first such suggestion !
