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

Another week, another seven days of Miami gossip. The week brought some good news for our cultural institutions, the inevitable celebrity sighting on South Beach, and supermodel Christie Brinkley's dustup with a bird.

Here's this week's best culture (both highbrow and lowbrow) gossip from the 305.

  • Congratulations to Books & Books: Publisher's Weekly named the local chain Bookstore of the Year 2015. 

  • Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) acquired new works by major African-American artists, including Terry Adkins and Leslie Hewitt

  • Michael Capponi is out of the hospital after crashing his boat in South Beach. Capponi says he "blacked out" before running into a seawall.

  • Christie Brinkley tried to do the right thing and save an injured bird. Unfortunately for her, the bird attacked her. She's been treated for bird-related injures in Miami. 

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.
