Besides my own book, there are several New Mexico magazines and newspapers that compile "best" lists with some regularity. In Santa Fe these include the weekly Santa Fe Reporter, the daily Santa Fe New Mexican and the monthly Santa Fean magazine. In Albuquerque, look in the weekly Alibi and the montly ABQ magazine. Each provides helpful insights into what local people like to see and do.
