    Oops, This Herald Forgot New Times

    See that pretty 1A pic in this morning's edition of the Magic City's largest English-language publication, the Miami Herald? Notice the gorgeous Trinidadian woman next to her equally good-looking hombre? "Patrice Yursik and her husband, Steve, will pick strawberries in a Kendall field and dip them ... More >>

    Cheap Eats - Caribbean Delite

    It must be a bit disconcerting for an American to enter Caribbean Delite. The Trinidadian eatery is nestled unassumingly in a generic, largely island-themed strip mall on SW 160th. Reggae blares from the record shop down the way, but the interior of the restaurant is silent, save for the sound of co ... More >>

    Team Deuce For The Win!

    We’ve loved Mac’s Club Deuce for a long time now. We enjoy the dark ambiance, the gregarious regulars, and the pink linoleum, horseshoe shaped bar. We especially love ol’ Mac himself, and the bartenders who keep our Jack and Cokes coming strong, fast, and cheap -- just the way we like ‘em. A ... More >>

    Sorry, but Whole Foods is Awesome

    Mmm, beets. Publix is pathetic. And Winn-Dixie’s been wack. Even your neighborhood Milam’s will get a disinterested “meh” from local grocery shopping connoisseurs now.

    No More Excuses for Skin Cancer, People

    After steady ignoring that weird splotch on your forearm for months now, you’ve finally convinced yourself that it’s actually changing shape, like a chocolate brown amoeba slowly squrming under a microscope.

    Patrick Pedraja is Driving for (Bone Marrow) Donors

    It's Pat! We get no end of fundraising e mails sent to us at the Miami New Times. As touching as many of them are, there’s just no way to shine a light on all of the worthwhile causes. But eleven year old Patrick Pedraja is a special case. Patrick has acute lymphoblastic lukemia, and instead ... More >>
