    »Thai House Restaurant

    It's a mystery how the Thai House Restaurant stays in business, given that it is always far from bursting with customers, but it does provide good food at reasonable prices in the pedestrian-friendly University area. So if you don't fancy making the trek up to the Southeast Heights where most of the competition is located, or if you want to take away rather than to linger over a romantic meal, this is a decent option. Thai House also sells cards, incense, soap, tea cups, jewelry, hair accessories, and handicrafts. - Pip Lustgarten

    »Bookcase Used Books

    The narrow aisles and hodgepodge stacks of used books in this store may seem cluttered but if you are looking for a particular title, author or subject, the owner can walk you straight to it. The store has been in the same location across from the University of New Mexico for over 30 years and regular customers bring in boxes of books to trade for others. The shop has acquired hundreds of collectors' books and some valuable antiques.

    »Mecca Music & Books

    Support small indie stores by shopping for your used and new vinyl, CDs, cassettes and books at Mecca Music and Books. Jazz, hip-hop, indie rock and country are the specialties, and you can take advantage of the cozy seating area while browsing the excellent collections. Debates rage among locals as to whether this is the best used record store in New Mexico or a place to avoid due to the notoriously unfriendly demeanor of the owner, who is also renown for opening at whatever hours he sees fit from one day to the next. If you can handle these factors, you might just find the place lives up to its name. - Pip Lustgarten

    »Masks Y Mas

    The Mexican Day of the Dead, celebrated on November 1st and 2nd, is a celebration in which the living honor the departed. Skulls are its characteristic imagery, most commonly in the form of folk art figurines such as the Novia (Bride), or made of sugar and brightly decorated. Masks Y Mas store and gallery is a truly one of a kind entity in the United States, importing Day of the Dead artwork, masks and figurines, and displaying them beside all sorts of locally-themed kitsch, including t-shirts and jewelery. It successfully combines cultural education, humor and a serious social commitment; the latter evident in the frequent exhibitions of work by incarcerated artists. - Pip Lustgarten
