Of course, so does not drink­ing too much — and it’s cheaper. The money comes less than a year af­ter in­vestors on the TV show “Shark Tank” re­fused to pro­vide $400,000 for 10 per­cent in the com­pany, say­ing the busi­ness was in the too-early stage.

Win­ner HOUS­TON AIR­PORTS

Bush In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal and Hobby air­ports saw a record 58.3 mil­lion trav­el­ers in 2018.

Loser POWER TO CHOOSE

A state-spon­sored web­site mil­lions of Tex­ans use to shop for elec­tric­ity could be on the chop­ping block. Texas Rep. Jared Pat­ter­son, a fresh­man Repub­li­can who rep­re­sents Den­ton County, wants the Pub­lic Util­ity Com­mis­sion to drop Power to Choose, the web­site in­tro­duced two decades ago when Texas dereg­u­lated the elec­tric­ity in­dus­try.
