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

You guys. We survived! The city survived the hottest month of the year. A couple survived freaky, history-making crocodile bites in Coral Gables. We all, somehow, survived the hard wrath of Stitches.

Though August was a rough ride, it had some bright moments: Miami finally got its very own IKEA, Burger King is making Canadians everywhere cry, and Pam Bondi's motion to freeze marriage equality cases in the courts got denied in her FACE.

Let's carry all of this awesome through the weekend.

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.
