Always a city with muscle, Houston gets stronger by the day -- hence the theme of this year's Houston Press Best of Houston® edition: Growth and Regrowth. That's not news to us, but it is to some. The city that used to feel like our little secret seems to be getting more and more national recognition.
But you've known all about it for a while, haven't you? You know where to find the city's juiciest burger, shiniest car wash, loveliest art gallery and the bar with the best jukebox.
So share your Houston-centric wisdom by voting for your favorites in our Reader's Choice poll. The ballot went live today. We'll publish the results in our biggest issue of the year, coming out September 27.
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.
