At The New Tropic, we get to know dope people doing some great stuff in and for Miami, and we want to help you get to know them too. So we’re teaming up with some of Miami’s leading cultural crusaders to make it happen for you. We’re talking things like a personal tour of PAMM with director Franklin Sirmans, a cocktail-making lesson with the geniuses at the Broken Shaker, and a chance to meet some of the brilliant authors coming through Books & Books every month.

Find out the details and how you can win here.

#MeToo behind bars. A guard at Miami’s Federal Detention Center was charged with sexually abusing an inmate last year. Damon Coleman maintains that it was consensual, but the law disagrees.

Who’s that guy? Billionaire Moishe Mana has big ideas for Miami, including transforming it into the Hong Kong of the Americas. Typically press-shy, he opened up to the Miami Herald about who he is and what he wants to do with the prime real estate he’s dropped $350 million on.

Haters gonna hate. The undefeated Miami Hurricanes are now No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, which seems to piss some people off. Here are five reasons why people outside of Miami love to hate the Canes — and yeah, the turnover chain is one of them. (Miami New Times)

Mad scientist props. Frost Museum of Science passed the half million visitor mark last month, only six months after opening its doors. As a result, it’s expanded its exhibitions and added another planetarium show. (Miami Today)
