As mentioned in last week's Upcoming Events, the Houston Web Awards tickets are normally $30, but the VOICE Daily Deal today gets you those same tickets for $15. And although it might not sound like the Houston Web Awards would be interesting for the average foodie, consider this: We'll be sampling food, beer, wine and spirits throughout the night, including Brugal Rum, savories from H Town Grill and W Grill and sweets from Ooh La La Desserts.
And more to the point, we'll be giving out food-related awards in eight categories:
- Best Food Blog
- Best Use of Twitter by a Restaurant
- Best Use of Twitter by a Chef
- Best Use of Twitter by a Bartender
- Best Use of Twitter by a Food Truck
- Best Use of Facebook by a Restaurant
- Best Use of Video in Food
- Best Restaurant Website
Nominations are now closed for the Houston Web Awards, but you can find the winners in our June 30 issue, or -- better -- come out and see them announced live, surrounded by food and drink and music from special guest Fat Tony.
Think you know who'll win the above awards? Leave your guesses in the comments section below -- but go and grab a half-off ticket first.
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.
