BOB: Intro

The Best of Albuquerque, 2010

Best of Burque XVI

Welcome to Best of Burque, the Alibi’s user-generated guide to Albuquerque! If you’re an old hand at this issue, you’ve probably already skipped ahead to Best Pet Store, or Best Art Gallery, or Best Anything We Forgot (which is magnificent this year). But if you’re new to BoB, please allow us to make a formal introduction.

Best Anything We Forgot

Don't worry, we didn't forget the restaurant categories. The Alibi has a whole issue for thatyou can vote for Best of Burque Restaurants in the fall. In the meantime, here are the notes you sent us about the categories we stupidly left out. (These are not official categories, and the entities listed are not official winners or titleholders. No voting determined this list. These are simply reader write-ins ... probably from our moms, because they’re so very proud of us.)

It's not official. But it's fun.

Best Thing About Being Mayor So Far

The chance to work with the city employeesjust working with dedicated people who get up every day and try to make the city a better place. They're all over. They're at the Solid Waste Department, the Fire Department, they're in the administration at City Hall. I just run into people over and over again who bring so much energy to their jobs. Plus, you get a chance to sit with people who are creative and have good ideas on how to move the city forward.

Sweet sugary manna from Heaven! I'm not a dessert kinda guy, but I could eat this stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to the shop on Juan Tabo, you can pick it up at select supermarkets like Sunflower. Get some now. Keep your hands off mine.
