💦 The Brickell bridge. SMH.

Speaking of making it rain...

A couple weeks ago, we told you we hit our goal of $50,000 in our SeedInvest fundraising campaign. Then we asked you to help us get to $250k.

And y’all blew us out of the water AGAIN. We’ve now raised $500,000!🎉

Doing this job is fun because of you. We can’t thank you enough for all the love and support.

There are still three days left in our campaign. Investing costs as little as a cross-country plane ticket. Join us?

What's New In The 305

That f’in bridge. When the Brickell bridge goes up for ships, traffic grinds to a halt. The Transportation Planning Organization voted last week to build a car tunnel to avoid all that mess – but don’t get your hopes up. They’ve still got a lot of hoops to jump through. (Miami Today)

Trump’s Florida Man. The story behind one of President Trump’s biggest supporters, “Michael the Black Man,” is a bizarre tale of a wild party, arrests and a Miami cult. Because, of course, there’s a Miami connection. (The Washington Post, Miami New Times)  

The Panama Papers, continued. The Feds are once again expanding their crackdown on dirty real estate buys, especially in Miami and a few other cities. That means it’s going to get a lot harder for anyone, especially foreign buyers, to hide shady money in real estate purchases. (Miami Herald)  

Treat yo’ self. The National Park Service is turning 101 today and that means free entry into any national park for the day. We’ve got three in our backyard: Big Cypress, Dry Tortugas and of course, the Everglades. (National Park Service)

A historical moment. Florida executed a white man for killing a black man for the first time in state history yesterday. Mark Asay was convicted of killing two men in Jacksonville in 1987, one of them for his race, and sentenced to death. (AP)

Move over, Zak. There’s a new artisanal bread bakery in town. An outpost of the popular New York Sullivan Street Bakery is coming to Miami. It’s known for the taste of its no-knead dough. Trust us: there’s no-knead to be skeptical. (Miami New Times)

Ready to rumble. Here are 22 of the best places in Miami to knock back some drinks and witness Mayweather vs. McGregor, the fight of the century. (Miami.com)
