Dam New Times thats harsh of you to give such an undeserving award to a space that is still operating. Talk about hating and typical pathetic miami politics. New Times continues to prove once again its unfair and unbalanced coverage of the scene in Miami. Its so obvious how you praise undeserving talent and places that advertise in your paper by giving them these useless awards and disrespect deserving people and places with your totally unnecessary negative hate filled awards like this one that doesnt even contain facts. Just another reason why Miami is considered a joke on the world scene and only a mecca for the underachievers and failed wannabees of the major markets like NY and L.A.
Best Nightclub to Die in the Past Year Miami 2007 - Shine - CLOSED
shine is not dead and not officially closed nor has it ever been. with the city trend turning hip hop shine has turned into a "special events" venue as i did not want to go that route. we have many events during the year and of course winter music conference and NYE are included. there is no truth to the comment that we were shut down due to noise complaints by the city. In fact, we were one of the only venues to get zero violations all through wmc - stay tuned for a series of "groovejet" reunion parties to begin this summer @ shine at the shelborne beach resort
