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

We're not sure if this is a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare, but the prospect of the Jersey Shore cast coming to South Beach for season two just got a little more real.

TMZ reports producers sent a letter to Mynt Lounge asking if they'd be able to shoot footage for the show this March and April (they'd be here during WMC apparently) and that they "won't be able to shoot the show on Miami Beach unless we're able to shoot in the hottest clubs."

Producers say they haven't settled on a location just yet, but this is a strong indication South Beach is at the top of their list. Like way too many things in town, it seems the power ultimately lies in the hands of club owners.

Are clubs such as Mynt, which we imagine fancy themselves a step above places like the Beachcomber Bar & Grill, going to want to identify themselves with reality TV's fist-pumping-est guilty pleasure?

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.
