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

File under just another day at the office. Cristina Moguel, general manager of John Martin's Restaurant and Irish Pub, relates this story of a memorable drunk.

"This chick took our toilet seat out of the handicapped stall and ran out with it. She was wasted. I had to chase her out into the street. She finally surrendered after a 20 minute facedown. I had to threaten to call the cops. I have no idea why she did it. She said she just wanted to. I didn't even wanna grab it out of her hands. It was still warm."

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.
