Next week, the results of our annual search for all things "best" in Houston will be revealed in the October 9 edition of the Houston Press.
We've munched burgers across the city, gone to all sorts of sporting events, and checked out promises big and small from politicians and officials.
In addition, we have your votes in our Readers' Choice 100 categories (99 items plus the one we forgot) to look forward to.
There's a lot to celebrate in Houston so we urge you to join us when we do just that next week.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
