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

Everybody is getting excited about tonight's Miami New Times Iron Fork event, to be held at Grand Central downtown. There will be great food and drink, all sorts of chefs and food industry personalities milling about, lively music, general festiveness, and - possibly the highlight of the evening - the First Annual Short Order Awards will be given out. 


Oh, and there is also going to be the Iron Joke -- er, Iron Fork chef competition, whereby last year's winner, the acclaimed John Critchley of Area 31, faces off against some guy from one of Doug Rodriguez' restaurants. D-Rod apparently screwed us by dropping out, and guess there were no other Miami chefs willing to go mano-a-mano with Critchley. So while this particular event will no doubt suck, the rest of the evening looks to be a seriously good time.

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.
