How can New Times plan and execute our 2020 Best of Miami® issue during a lockdown of indeterminate length, one that has dealt an unprecedented blow to so many of the businesses we typically cover?
We’ve decided to do what most of us are already doing…
Make the Best of Miami®.
Make no mistake: Showing off the best dining, drinking, shopping, recreation, and all-around edification Miami offers to residents and visitors alike doesn’t mean forgetting the harm that continues to wreak havoc on lives and livelihoods this year.
But underneath it all, we’re still a community. We’re in this together, and we’ll find our way through it together.
You’ll probably notice that some of our Readers’ Poll categories this year highlight establishments that are (to put it gently) dormant. But we aren’t going to let that technicality make them ineligible for the poll.
It just doesn’t seem right. After all, who knows what the “New Normal” will look like in two months (not to mention three, or six)?
We’ll likely have a somewhat clearer picture by December 10, when we publish the 2020 issue of the Best of Miami®.
In the meantime, please help us make the best of it!
