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

Now that Miami has collectively recovered from NYE hangover, the city was hopping once again. Even Manny Puig of Jackass fame was out and about. We spotted him at Green Street Cafe in Coconut Grove, using his tooth necklace to score ladies. We got into a lot of stuff over the weekend so let's get right to it...

Paul Mooney, otherwise known as Negrodamus, came through the Miami Improv and is still living by the motto: "Fuck you, it's funny. And if you die, it'll still be funny."


There's only one month left to see the amazing, hilarious, and bawdy acrobatics of the Absinthe performers under the Spiegeltent on South beach. If you like Cirque du Soleil, hallucinogens, and burlesque, you'll like this show.

It was the first Wynwood Art Walk of 2008, and the first show for Harold Golen since his gallery burned down last month. Check out a slideshow of the gallery walk.

New Times staffer Patrice Yursik begins a series of spa and salon reviews with an eyebrow wax at Arcayne Salon.

Larry Johnson, Willis McGahee, and Ja Rule partied at Karu&Y, and the Party Crasher has the details.

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.
