Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

It's definitely the dog days of summer, and it's hot as Hades out there. Aside from moving into the refrigerator case at Publix, we've tried every technique possible to stay cool, and alas, we're still hot, sweaty, unglamorous messes. Seriously, fall - we're ready for your arrival.

But until the sweet days of post-summer breezes are upon us, here are some options to keep you occupied.



  • Free Salsa Class at Moca Cafe: Can't dance? Now's your chance. Get your salsa on in front of people you'll probably never see again.
  • Contradance at Bayfront Park: If salsa's not up your alley, give this open, community dance a shot instead. Just leave all self-consciousness at home.


  • Miami's Cutest Pet Contest at Frames USA & Art Gallery: Everyone knows your pet is the cutest (insert pet type here) EVER, so why not prove it with an official designation?

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
