    The Best Venue in Town
    PROS: Right on Campus. Not a bad seat in the house. A wide variety of performances. Cheap seats (pricing, that is). 1 Block from the Frontier! This is also the home for the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra (who are truly great). CONS: Parking is always a problem on Campus.

    Outdoor Activities right by the Rio Grande
    Tingley Beach & Rio Line Rail Road are part of the Albuquerque BioPark. PROS: Tingley Beach has several man-made ponds for fishing (one for kids), and a pond for RC boats. It has the Rio Line miniature rail-road that connect you to the Zoo, Tingley Beach and the Botanic Gardens/Aquarium. There are hiking trails right along the edge of the Rio Grande River. There is also a gift shop and a cafe. CONS: It's kind of small (but, the rail road is fun).

    One of the Best in the Country
    The Bio Park is part of the Albuquerque Biological Park. PROS: There's a little bit of something for everyone (in-door, out-doors, Adults, and kids). There are bug houses, Biospheres, a working farm, and the large Garden Model Rail-road. Plenty of parking. It's right next door to the Aquarium, and up the street from Tingley Beach and the Zoo. Plus, they have a big Winter Lights Festival. CONS: None that I can think of.

    Small but nice
    The Aquarium is part of the Albuquerque Biological Park. PRO: Wonderful exhibits. Indoors. Also has a bar & restaurant that looks into the main tank. Your admission is also part of the Botanic Gardens next door. CONS: Small. The restaurant serves every-day, run-of-the-mill food. The bar is rarely open.

    A Great Local Museum
    PRO: It's not Huge, but you can spend the better part of the day there. There are sculpture outside as well as in. It's Free on Sunday's & the first Wednesday. A wide array of exhibits, from Art, to dioramas, movies, etc. It's attached to Old Town. CONS: Parking can be a problem (it is in old town).

    Nice Mix, Nice Place
    PROS: It's very nice place, very comfortable. The collage "kids" hang-out there in the evenings (the friendly kind, not the rowdy kind). CONS: It can get loud. It can get crowded. OTHER: It's mostly a "Bar" in the evenings. It's primarily straight; but then Albuquerque (near the University at least) is a very Gay friendly town.

    Hates it

    A little Something for everyone - (EDIT) Not Really
    UPDATE: As of September 2012, Sidewinders no longer has Country Dancing. PROS: There's always someone there. Nice Bartenders. Large place, good for meeting people (if you make yourself available for meeting). It is a "Mixed" bar (in every aspect). CONS: The music can get a little loud in the evenings. It's in a seedy neighborhood.

    Almost always a good time
    PRO: There's almost always a small (to large!) crowd. It's very friendly (if you are). Very much a neighbor hood bar. CONS: There is an annual fee (It's a Private Club); Smoking inside; and, there can be some god-awful drag at times (is that really a con?).
