BOB: Intro

The Gambler

The Alibi's Best of Burque 2006

You got to know when to hold 'em,
Know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away
And know when to run.
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done.

When times get tough and the sweetness of the world turns sour, we here at the Alibi turn to Kenny Rogers, more often than not, for a helping hand to guide us along life's thornier stretches. After all, it's a gambling world, and nobody understands how to play the game better than The Gambler himself.

With that in mind, we ask you to step up to the roulette wheel, and give her a spin. Come on. Don't be bashful. The risk is tiny, and the payoff is certain to be enormous.

Yep, it's time for this year's Best of Burque, where our readers give you inside tips on the finest our fine city has to offer. From politics to culture to food to night life to shopping, our annual Best of Burque guide is the single easiest way to win large all year round in Albuquerque.

Before we pick up the dice and give them a shake, though, how about a word of thanks to all the fine folks who helped put this big slobbering beast together? Frances Cheever, Sonya Cogan, Marisa Demarco, Abi Blueher, Jacqueline Paul, Amanda J. Duran, Simon McCormack, Jennifer Wohletz, Christie Chisholm, Laura Marrich, Amy Dalness, Tom Nayder, Jeff Drew, Wes Naman and Steven Robert Allen—may Lady Luck bless you in all your future endeavors.

All right. Enough jibber jabber. Put on your gambling slippers, lounge hounds. It's time to hit the tables.
