Albuquerque The Magazine
Albuquerque The Magazine packs its monthly glossy with colorful displays of city happenings as well as features, shopping tips, and interviews with local notables. Peruse the culture section for the scoop on arts events, plan cuisine outings with the restaurant guide, or browse the pet section to learn about doggie wedding venues. The photo-filled ode to New Mexico's largest city distinguishes itself with its community involvement, its insider coverage of local goings-on, and its aesthetic contribution to mousy coffee tables.
