It's that time of year again — Miami's version of the Oscars, the Grammys, and the James Beards, all wrapped into one.
We're talking about New Times' annual Best of Miami edition, which comes out in June.
Once again, our editorial staff locked themselves up in a tower to spend their days writing about everything good and new and fresh about Miami — from the best hair salon to the best pizza. We've finally been allowed back out into the light of day, our mission accomplished for another year. Now it's your turn.
Because we value your opinion, dear reader, you too get a say in what's notable and wonderful in Miami.
Earlier, we asked you to nominate your favorite bands, restaurants, and shops in Miami. On May 7, we closed the initial nomination process to tally your recommendations and find the top five nominees in each award category.
Now it's time to vote.
Until May 31, visit readerschoice.miaminewtimes.com to vote for your favorites in 100 categories ranging from Best Gas Station to Best Bartender. You can vote in as many categories as you like.
And be sure to pick up your issue of Best of Miami Thursday, June 16, to see the winners and keep it as a year-round reference for the best food, music, shops, and activities in the Magic City.
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.
