Things To Do

Houston Web Awards: And The Winner Is..., for getting a half-off ticket to our inaugural Houston Web Awards ceremony on Thursday, June 30.

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.
