    Best Jukebox - Warren's Inn

    A downtown fixture as venerable as Warren's would be incomplete without a fine jukebox to complement the (Houston Press) award-winning decor, martinis and staff. And there, placed innocuously inside the main room, sits the late-model Rowe Ami. It's n...

    Best Bike Path - Brays Bayou along North and South Braeswood

    While Houston has light-years to go before becoming a truly bike-friendly city, it is finally beginning to get at least tolerant of the two-wheelers. Nothing shows the dtente with motorists better than the pathway system along Brays Bayou in the sou...

    Best Oysters - Fung's Kitchen

    While many will argue that the only good oyster is a raw oyster, we believe that the oysters in garlic sauce at Fung's Kitchen will cause anyone to reconsider that position. Large (usually huge) oysters on the half shell are steamed just enough to br...

    Best Whistle-Blower - Charles Max Jennings

    Like a hand-hewn beam, Charles Max Jennings is both rough-cut and a commodity. He may come off as a crude old fart with an attitude ("You're goddamn right" is one of his favorite phrases), but Jennings is the worst nightmare of a corrupt bureaucracy....

    Best Place to Play Racquetball - Memorial Athletic Club

    Remember back in the 1980s when it seemed like everybody and their mother was playing racquetball? It was as if the pasty white walls of the racquetball court were placing everyone who entered under some mysterious sweat-soaked spell. But the boom we...

    Best Place to Get a Traffic Ticket - Revitalized section of downtown

    "Downtown...," sang Petula Clark, "...where all the lights are bright." And she's exactly right -- it's where all the flashing red lights are brightest. Perhaps the trade-off, the sense of security from crime, is worth it. But downtown cops seem dead...

    Best Bird-Watching - Barker Reservoir, Highway 6 at Briar Forest

    With its woodlands, low-lying prairies and many acres of ponds, Barker Reservoir has helped make Houston's ozone-choked air less foul, and more fowl. The nature preserve is a pre-eminent spot for birding within the city limits, particularly during wi...

    Best Hero - Texas Ranger Sergeant Drew Carter

    Best Place to Meet Single Women - Ceramics class, Foelber Pottery Gallery & Studio

    She was bored. She had nothing to do after work except eat dinner and watch TV, and the reception was so bad in her apartment that the rabbit ears were useless. She wanted to do something fun, something artsy and hands-on. And she wanted to meet othe...

    Best Place to Smoke - The State Bar and Lounge

    Walk up. Sit down. Light up. Savor. The State Bar, that one-flight-up reincarnation of the Old Capitol Club at the Rice Lofts, pays ample tribute to an earlier time when tobacco could be richly enjoyed, right along with well-mixed drinks and quiet co...

    Best Video Game - KNOWMAD, at the Art Car Museum

    No shooting. No explosions. But there are ideas here, furtively embedded in this first-person driver game designed by Houston-born artist Mel Chin and a passel of MIT programmers. You press the gas pedal and drive through the desert, where a "tree of...

    Best Republican - State Representative John Culberson, winner of the GOP nomination in the Seventh Congressional District

    This state rep ran a smart but vastly underfunded campaign against River Oaks big bucks Peter Wareing. He also showed rare political moxie by taking on westside political activist Steven Hotze and refusing to kowtow to the good doctor to get his endo...

    Best Sandwich - Urban Foods

    Urban Foods, a friendly deli/gourmet food store in the Rice Lofts, makes one of the best sandwiches we've ever tasted. Here's the blueprint (as Ken Hoffman might say): house-smoked salmon, sliced hard-boiled eggs, slightly bitter arugula and a sprigh...

    Best Response to a Houston Press Story - Karen Gerstner

    Best Place to Smoke a Hookah - Star Cafe

    Best Weathercaster - Chuck George, KPRC-TV Channel 2
