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

Evidently last week's entry in Short Order's weekly contest, WTF Is It?!?, -- was child's play for our MENSA-class readers. Half the world, it seems, knows what to do with a bitter gourd, while we'd been using them as foot massagers. This week we've got TWO summertime edibles and the winner will correctly identify BOTH of them. As a bonus, tell us how to serve or cook them together.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, 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 South Florida with no paywalls.
