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

Underthebusmiami.com is the spawn of thesmokinggun.com and the defunct thedirtmiami.com. The new blog appears to have started this week, chock full 'o restraining orders, South Beach gossip and tax lein scandals. One entertaining thread highlights a feud between Mynt/Rok Bar owner Roberto Caan and his (former?) Rok Bar business partner Phillip Sylvester. An alleged cell phone assault and threats make good reading: "You don't know who you're fucking with, you're dead," Caan said to Sylvester, according to the restraining order against Caan.

The blog helpfully shows a copy of the restraining order filed in Circuit Court. A blogger who knows his/her way around the Sunshine Law?

We love it!!

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.
