Where's the best place to see your favorite band? Which newscaster has the best hair configuration? Who's the sportiest local athlete, and where should you take your car to get fixed? See how Albuquerque voted inside this year's Best of Burque Issue.
NEWS/OPINION
Our city is a lady that loves her dog but doesn't care much for others; eats badly, but exercises regularly; and lives in a violent part of the country, but doesn't let that discourage her from going out on the town. Plus, swimming with the fishes. And is the cover of this week's Vogue implicitly racist?
MUSIC
Kate Mann returns to the land that influenced her music and her back tattoo while Andy Milne and Dapp Theory blend jazz, rock, hip-hop and spoken word elements into an innovative, socially conscious mix that grooves.
FOOD
Amadeo's Pizza and Subs bakes up pizza with no frills or fancy footwork—just the way we like it. Plus, find the best wine to dance to.
FILM & TV
Taxi to the Dark Side has the elegance of an argument that is formed by logic and shaped by empathy. And Stop-Loss' message fails to enrapture the masses.
ARTS/LIT
The College National Poetry Slam finds warmer weather in Albuquerque. And Ceridwen Dovey’s Blood Kin shines a bright light on a ritual worship of power.

Reward offered for the return of a stolen gravestone

Unfortunately, this is not a joke. On March 1st, a truck transporting a gravestone of a recently deceased elderly woman was stolen near Coors and I40. The truck was recovered at a separate location but the gravestone was not. The grandson of the deceased is offering a reasonable reward for the recovery of the gray granite headstone, no questions asked. It measures 20”x16”x10”, and features an image of roses and a cross on the upper right corner, and an image of a herd of sheep on the lower left corner, with the dates “1912-2015” centered at the bottom.

If you have any information, please come forward and help this family lay their loved one to rest. C'mon, people! Don't you think a centenarian deserves better?
