    Best Place to Smoke - The State Bar and Lounge

    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 Place to Smoke a Hookah - Star Cafe

    Star Cafe is for real. It doesn't cater to denizens of the mainstream American culture looking to try something it deems "exotic." Nope, at Star Cafe, the clientele is composed of Arabic immigrants, mostly from Egypt. They gather at this drab locatio...

    Best Weathercaster - Chuck George, KPRC-TV Channel 2

    Best Thing About Enron Field - Lots of Foul-Ball and Home-Run Souvenirs

    There's a lot to like about Enron Field. (There's also a lot to dislike, but now's not the time to mention $5.25 beers. Or cold hot dogs. Or the cramped and hot upper deck. And now certainly is not the time to bring up the team's performance this yea...

    Best Name for Houston's New Football Team - The Developers

    Best Roadway Improvement - U.S. 59 from I-10 to just south of Humble

    Best Place to See a College Football Game - Robertson Stadium, University of Houston

    Best Ditch - East of the power lines between Gramercy and North Braeswood Boulevard
