    Best Christmas Show - David Mamet's Edmond, by Infernal Bridegroom Productions

    Best Bar Manager - Betty Campbell, Little Woodrow's

    Tucked in the armpit of West U, Bellaire and the railroad tracks, Little Woodrow's seems out of place and time. Few of the mostly working-class regulars who frequent the area's only neighborhood bar live in the monstrosities that have sprouted in the...

    Best Tex-Mex Restaurant - Felix Mexican Restaurant

    With south-of-the-border fare having gone gourmet, Felix is often dismissed by highbrow naysayers. They forget that it's the good old-fashioned grease factor that makes true Tex-Mex. It's in abundance here, although it's a little sad to see the discl...

    Best Movie Theater That Will Never Show Gladiator - Aurora Picture Show
