honored our pal Diane "Kitty" Murray
at their annual gala. They also honored this guy

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Who can take a nothing lesbian scene and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

Plus, you are missing out on Kitty herself, the local bon vivant, fashionable dame, and snappy writer behind the regular and informative witty missives. Foodies, the "Best of Austin" award-winning group behind the list, is a social group of women who meet in a variety of settings, giving local babes more options than just infrequent bar nights to meet and, ummm, eat. www.ultraultra.net
