    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 Radio Sidekick - Jay Mack, The Madd Hatta Show, KBXX/97.9 FM

    You gotta give some much-deserved credit to the man they call Jay Mack. How many brothas out there you know who are as suave as a Julio Iglesias song and can still not take themselves too seriously? There seems to be a shortage these days. Thankfully...

    Best Dancing by the Side of the Road - Drive By Dancing 2000

    Dancing and driving hardly seem compatible. But choreographer Leslie Scates, the woman who single-handedly engineered Drive By Dancing 2000, is clearly not the type to let a little workaday common sense supersede inspiration. The big idea came to her...
