It’s that time of year, folks. Once again we turned to our well-traveled, well-informed, well-bred readers and asked them to inform us, for a change, about their favorite places and people in Albuquerque. They responded in droves. In the first round of Best of Burque, readers offered up their nominations in a whole host of “locals only” categories. We took the top five most popular reader suggestions in each category and then asked everyone to pick their faves. Here, then, are the winners in everything from Best Local Poet to Best Dive Bar.
Congratulations to all our winners! And for those hungry for more food-based categories, not to worry: Our Best of Burque Restaurant Poll rolls around in October.
