Old news, but have you checked out the Local IQ yet? It's a paper and online free biweekly paper with great Albuquerque information. I find it much more useful than the Alibi, which is pretty pathetic.
IQ tends to write about events, restaurants, and happenings that are interesting to me- they've done pieces on all of my favorite downtown restaurants- Slate Street Cafe, Standard Diner, Relish (best sandwiches EVER), and a lot of other great finds as well.
If you haven't checked them out yet, I highly recommend doing so!
