From the H-bomb's' front page yestserday:

"It's about 1:30 in the morning, and the college crowd at Apples Martini Bar in Coconut Grove is majoring in shaking some serious booty."

Run that by me one more time? "majoring in shaking some serious booty."

Majoring in what now? ". . . shaking some serious booty."

Someseriouswhatnow? ... Anyway.

Although the story features a shared byline - city beat Michael Vasquez and intern Sarah Tompkins - Vasquez admitted over the phone that the vernacular-employing gem of a sentence was his. "I'd like to give our intern credit for that," he said. "But it was me."

As for the 1:30 A.M. bit -- the time, according to the article, that "a handful of twenty-something women sway to the music on table tops, while others get down on a crowded dance floor," -- both reporters, Vasquez said, were present.

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.
