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

OpenTable has released its 2009 Diners' Choice Awards for Restaurants with the Most Vibrant Bar Scene. Our congratulations go to Miami's very own, um....gee, that's surprising. Hmm...well, who cares that we didn't make the stinking list. We're not bitter, and indeed offer our heartfelt congrats to Bootsy's in Cincinnati, and to Chino Latino in Minneapolis, and to Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philadelphia...I mean imagine that -- a place called Eulogy Belgian Tavern has a more vibrant bar scene than anyplace in Miami!

Anyway, South Florida didn't get shut out completely: Vic & Angelo's in Delray Beach and YOLO of Ft. Lauderdale both made the grade. The complete list is here.

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.
