Going to Vegas for CES? Serves Up Foodie Survival Guide

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) - (2011 CES) -- This year's CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas is expected to bring an estimated 120,000 gadget-loving gurus and groupies to Las Vegas January 6 - 9. That's a lot of mouths to feed, and those who attend are likely to build a healthy appetite as they explore the dizzying array of technology on display.

That's why, the Webby-nominated food social network and recipe swap, has released its second annual "CES Sin City Foodie Survival Guide."

The easy-to-read Las Vegas food guide for CES is available online at and is packed with specific tips on where to go and what to order. Categories include: breakfast, lunch, dinner, vegetarian options, drinks, happy hour, "old school," late night, treats and off-The-Strip. There's also a link to an abridged pocket version of the guide that can be printed for quick offline reference.

In true BakeSpace style, the 2011 CES food guide was crowdsourced from a variety of sources, including and its extended network of culinary enthusiasts across Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites. The Las Vegas food blogger community also weighed in heavily, and several suggestions resulted from food tasting events produced by BakeSpace during its recent TECHmunch Food Blogger Conference in Las Vegas at BlogWorld 2010.
