New Times' Best Of Miami Readers' Poll Now Open! Vote for Your Favorite Gallery, Art House Movie Theater and More

What's the best way to show your appreciation to Billy Corben for his relentless, newsy, snarky Twitter feed?

How best to thank the Miami Beach Cinematheque for its 20-year history of bringing underappreciate film gems to South Beach?

What can you do to congratulate Dan LeBatard on his successful trolling of the entire Internet over LeBron's almost unanimous MVP award?

Vote in New Times' Best of Miami Readers' Poll, of course.

New Times readers have already nominated the city's best culture makers (and food geniuses, splurge-worthy shops, and exciting activities). So now's your chance to see if your favorite art gallery, strip club, or DJ made the cut -- and cast your vote in the final round to determine which Miami institutions feel the New Times love this year.

These aren't easy decisions. The nominees for Best Art Gallery, for example, include Spinello Projects, one of just two Miami galleries to show at Art Basel last year; Emerson Dorsch, the unique new space helmed by Wynwood pioneer Brook Dorsch and his wife Tyler Emerson-Dorsch; graffiti-inspired Miguel Paredes' solo space; the eclectic Artopia Art Center; and Williams McCall Gallery, injecting a healthy dose of culture into South Beach's SoFi neighborhood.

Is it even possible to decide who's the best Twitter-er in Miami? In addition to Corben, there's the Miami-chronicling puppet Pepe Billete, the extra-dry wit of gossip queen Lesley Abravenal, the mouth-watering food feed of Fatgirl Hedonist, and fashion and beauty expert Annie Vazquez, aka The Fashion Poet.

But while your choices may be difficult, the voting process is extremely easy. Simply head to, and click on your favorites in each category. Voting is only open until May 29, so get cracking! You don't want to be kicking yourself June 13, the date of New Times' 2013 Best of Miami issue, when the winners are announced.
