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

Ever feel the urge to talk to a marine scientist? Well look no further. Every Friday night they gather at bar behind the University of Miami Marine Sciences Campus on Virginia Key. Just make your first right off the Rickenbacker right after you pass the Miami Seaquarium. Park outside the gates and make your way past the mass of scientific detritus (bouys, science things...) following signs toward "The Commons" (open to the public on Fridays). Pass through the lobby's massive stuffed sharks, past the awesome aquarium, and head towards the cafeteria-like dining area near the modest bar. They've got pints of Flying Dog, Doggy Style Pale Ale. Step out onto the deck and enjoy a drink with some seriously bearded Marine Biologists overlooking a pleasant, isolated beach. Miami ain't so bad... --Calvin Godfrey

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.
