    Best Female Rock Vocalist - Paige Alison Harvey

    Fort Lauderdale has always been one of those towns where talented bands grow too big for their britches and then bolt for the good life elsewhere. But the Livid Kittens have stuck around for nearly ten years to help make a good life right here. And i...

    Best Club VIP Room - Cream at the Liquid Room

    Cream is what you call an equal-opportunity VIP room. You can sport Puma sneakers and '70s glam sunglasses and throw in some spending cash -- and it's all good. Head to the back of the Liquid Room, beyond the velvet rope, through the etched glass an...

    Best Happy Hour - Max's Grille

    An embarrassment of post-workday riches: 3-for-1 drinks from 5 p.m. to closing, seven days a week. This warrants exploration. You walk into Max's and say, "Whiskey-ginger ale," and minutes later there is a trinity of golden W-GAs before you. The ta...

    Best Country and Western Bar - Red, White & Country

    You'll hear a lot of tunes about Texas at this Pompano Beach bar, where the people are friendly and the drafts are served in frosted mugs. But that's country. Until someone writes a hit tune about Florida cowboys, those are the little indignities th...

    Best Biker Bar - Quest Lounge

    You've got your leather chaps and dew rag, a beard down to your belly button, and a Harley with enough chrome to blind anyone with oversensitive eyes. But where to show off all of this and hang out with a similarly tough-as-nails crowd? South Florid...

    Best Dive - Geni-Lee's Saloon/Package Store

    ber-regulars set this joint apart from your usual hole-in-the-wall. (That and the fact that the place doesn't have a phone.) The faithful patrons of Geni-Lee's perch upon their barstools like moss on gravestones. They aren't even aware that the dri...

    Best Neighborhood Bar in East Broward - Coconuts

    A neighborhood joint on A1A in Fort Lauderdale may seem like an oxymoron, but the section that draws crowds from all around the area can be said to stop at Pusser's Rum, the south end of the beach strip. Beyond that stretches a line of hotels, conve...

    Best Neighborhood Bar in West Broward - Jacaranda Bar & Grill

    It's blinding bright outside, but inside the Bar & Grill, a soothing darkness rests the eyes and welcomes the world-weary. The walls are painted a clubby forest green. Three television sets are tuned to sports news, sound off. During football season...

    Best Neighborhood Bar in Palm Beach - Surf Caf

    Having celebrated its fifth anniversary in April, this joint rocks on. With its funky, Hawaiian-themed dcor -- surfboards on the walls and television sets showing big-wave videos on a loop -- the Surf Caf seems the perfect spot to hang ten -- or j...

    Best Bar Band - The Avenging Lawnmowers of Justice

    The Avenging Lawnmowers of Justice's succinct, silly, and unimaginably catchy songs (about worms, weirdos, weed, unpaid bills, alien abduction, and other important concerns) have been collected on a self-titled disc and another, soon-to-be-released o...

    Best Bartender - Ty Fenton

    The bar scene in South Florida leaves much to be desired. You spend the entire night competing for the attention of the harried bartender. You repeat the mantra, "Make eye contact, make eye contact, and maybe he'll notice me," but to no avail. By ...

    Best Sports Bar - Arena Sports Bar

    The key to a great sports bar is televisions. They must be legion -- a whole array of boob tubes should be scattered throughout the place so that at any moment, all one has to do to check the score is look up from the beer bottles and hot wings stre...

    Best Place to Humiliate a Date - Slattery's Irish Restaurant & Public House

    Best Radio Station - 90.9 FM

    Best Radio Station to Disappear in the Past 12 Months - Classical WTMI-FM (93.1)

    Upper-crust audiophiles in South Florida moaned December 31 when WTMI shed its 30-year tradition of playing classical music in favor of a format that caters to the younger techno-dance crowd. It morphed into "Party 93" as executives explained that c...

    Best Kids' Thrill(s) - Calypso Bay Waterpark
