Writers spent months combing the city's galleries, theaters, and festivals. Editors agonized over choosing the very greatest options. Readers nominated and voted for their favorites. And now, it's all about to pay off big.
New Times' Best of Miami issue is back. And this time, it has light sabers.
Our annual guide to the greatest places and people in the 305 hits the web today and the streets this Thursday, naming this year's best efforts in food, drink, sports, shopping, and ,most important, for Cultist readers, arts and entertainment.
We've already given you a sneak peek into the issue, dropping this year's best street artist, reality star, and TV show shot in Miami earlier this week. But those are just a handful of winners out of a whopping 338 categories. You're going to want to know which museum has bested all others and which art-house cinema is bringing the weirdest, wackiest indie films to town. You're going to need to know which local playhouse productions are worth the price of admission and which art fair is a must-see at Art Basel in December.
After all, this isn't just a collection of awards; it's a guide to getting the most out of the city you love.
