New Times Best of Miami 2009

The highly-anticipated, widely-imitated but never-duplicated New Times Best of Miami issue is set to hit the streets in a couple of days.

But the online version is already up.

It would be an understatement to say that the boys and girls at New Times have eclectic tastes.

So we were more than just a little curious as to who would win Best Blog.

And they didn't disappoint with their selection this year of The South Florida Watershed Journal as Best Blog. WTF???
"[T]he journal is occasionally poetic, often funny, and always charming in its presentation of the watery world."
(All kidding aside, "Watershed" is a very well done blog. And unlike a lot of South Florida blogs, it's run by two people (scientists) who actually know what they're talking about.)

Need more proof that they're permanently out to lunch at New Times? Everyone knows that the Best Place to People-Watch in South Florida is Lincoln Road on a Sunday or Coconut Grove.

The New Times choice? Cape Florida Lighthouse at Bill Baggs State Park. New Times says:
"Check out families flocked inside the picnic areas, grilling hot dogs and carne asada."
Travel to Cape Florida to watch people grilling hot dogs?? Whatever you say guys!

And the Best Mile of Miami according to New Times? Biscayne Boulevard between 54th and 79th streets. It sure is...if you have a police escort! Thanks for the heads up New Times; but I think I'll pass!

All that aside, The BOM issue is still one of the most popular issues of the paper with both readers and advertisers. Pick up your copy soon!


  1. It must of been the blog's header...

    "Your passport into the water cycle. See the Kissimmee, Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades, Big Cypress Swamp (and more) through the eyes of a hydrologist."


    You know, sometimes when you try to be too "hip," you look terribly silly.

    Just sayin'.


  2. Oy.

    But I disagree on that stretch of Biscayne -- it's got a luck of funky charm and some neat stores, restaurants, and architecture.

    What's life without a little danger?
