    Best Postcollegiate Fraternity Experience - Bronx Bar

    From the street, music blares from the Bronx Bar like a warning. Thump-thump-thump, the numbing bass line declares. At the sidewalk gate, a broad-shouldered bouncer clad in a black T-shirt gives the coveted silent nod. Inside, members of the mostly y...

    In a world where the phrase "White House intern" elicits sniggers and blow-job jokes, we all can say we're relieved that Monica "I don't take dirty dresses to the dry cleaners" Lewinsky wasn't from Houston, but Kristen Jones is a White House intern w...

    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

    Best Oysters - Fung's Kitchen

    Best Whistle-Blower - Charles Max Jennings

    Best Place to Play Racquetball - Memorial Athletic Club

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