Best of Burque 2013 Dear Best of Burque, you sure are a Lot of Worque. We all love our Burque, but sometimes we forget to say so out loud. For 20 years and counting, the Weekly Alibi has told the Burque Monster that we love it by counting up thousands and thousands of votes and boiling them down into the definitive things our readers love about living here. Some things are different, some things stay the same. You can think of it as a love letter. To the Burque.
