Wrote this up a few evenings ago, thought others might find it useful.

Food:
New Mexican is always great, but not very vegetarian-friendly. El Pinto, Los Cuates, Sadies, Little Anita's
Breakfast burritos! Twisters, Frontier/Golden Pride, Dos Hermanos (if they're still open).
Local Hippy Fare: Flying Star (coffee shop plus, also does great food, couple of locations, good for hanging out.)
Brewpubs: Il Vicino's, Turtle Mountain and Fat Squirrel (both in Rio Rancho), Chama River, St Claire's bistro
Owl Cafe: local version of the San Antonio (NM!) original, amazing Green Chile Cheeseburger
Food Snob: (more my wife's thing than mine). Nob Hill Bar & Grill

Drink:
Marble Brewery - some really outstanding solid beers.
Turtle Mountain - also very good
Il Vicino - "Slow Down Brown" is a standard.
Chama River
St. Claire's - NM has lots of interesting wines; not "classic", but worth trying if you're into that kind of thing.

Museums:
Explora - children's science museum, although they have adult nights too.
Nat'l Museum of Atomic Energy - not the most engaging topic, but due to location, has some fairly unique artifacts.
Biopark (zoo, aquarium, botanical gardens) - zoo is respectable, gardens have some nice touches, aquarium is mostly "meh".
Albuquerque Musuem - rotating art exhibits
Natural History Museum - not bad, has a few good bits. Denver's blows it away, though. :(

Misc:
Sandia Peak Tramway - "longest in the world", great views (although often cloudy in afternoon storms)
Santa Fe - oldest state capital, highest elevation state capital, nice touristy bits.
Very Large Array - far to drive without much to do there, but majestic in a "technology shrine" kind of way.
Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge - hour+ south, but very pretty, lots of birds. also, original "owl bar" (see under food)
