Spend the Day in Nob Hill
Nob Hill is one of Albuquerque's favorite corridors. It's brimming with local flavor, shopping, and both casual and fine dining alike. It's easy to spend a day wandering its arteries without ever glancing at the clock. Here are some of our readers' favorite pit stops.

Morningside Antiques
Best Antiques Store
In a district known for antiques, this title is a high honor.
4001 Central NE, 268-0188

Natural Sound
Best Local Music Store
This place stocks all the major releases, of course, but the real gems are the local albums you won’t find anywhere else.
3422 Central SE, 255-8295,

Best Comic Book Store
Graphic novels are hitting the mainstream, but some of us have always known comics are cool.
3108 Central, SE 232-7800,

Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro
Best Wine Bar, tied Best Happy Hour
Zinc's fabulous happy hour lasts from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Tonight, if you come between 9:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., you can also catch live music by Meat & Potatoes in the downstairs Cellar Bar.
3009 Central NE, 254-9462,

Best Bar in Which to Be Seen
You may have noticed that New Mexico has a ban on smoking in most places. But unlike the other smoke-free bars in Albuquerque, Imbibe is a “cigar bar”—since it sells cigars from a well-stocked humidor, smoking is permitted here. Light up and enjoy happy hour prices every day until 7 p.m.
3101 Central NE, 255-4200,,

* 5 to 7 p.m. Chainsaw Carvers Auction (north end of launch field)
* 5:45 to 7:30 p.m. Night Magic™ Glow
* 8 to 9 p.m. AfterGlow™ Fireworks Show presented by the Albuquerque Journal
