1.
Slang/abbreviation for city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The term, although specific origins are unknown, is thought to have lingered through generations of "Burqueños," (people from Albuquerque).

Conflict:
Very recently there has been a collective reaffirmation of this nickname in response to current Mayor Martin Chavez's announcement of a commercially-driven re-branding of Albuquerque as the "the Q." Many people feel as if this new nickname has nothing to do with Albuquerque, but with a gentrified version of the city that has been sanitized to be more palatable to outside investors. Nevertheless, new city buses and other city-run aspects of the community have adopted/been branded with this new catch-phrase.
The Frontier restaurant is classic Burque: old people on sundays, pop-punk teens at 11pm after their concert, cholos at any time of day, and when all the bar-going individuals somehow find their way up from downtown when the bars close.
