Ty Takes a Meal

BIG WINNER EDITION

Our sophisticated randomizing technology.

The air is thick with excitement. Two weeks of intense bad-photo guessing has resulted in two very skilled semi-finalists, commenters emptyv (who correctly sussed out B2B Bistronomy from a portion of its decorative blackboard) and msanchez (who deduced Duran's Station from a glimpse of its beer cooler).

The prize? Two $10 Alibi Buck certificates to Tia Betty Blue's New Mexican restaurant. Home of the best damned red chile you're ever going to find atop a blue corn waffle boat.

The competition? Randomized hat wrestling.

Alibi staff writer Mark Lopez approaches the sophisticated Randomizer 4000 (aka a hat we found lying around the office). He reaches in, hesitantly pulls out a folded slip of paper.

There is a tension laden silence over the room.

He unfolds it, holds it up, and reveals ...

COMMENTER MSANCHEZ!

Congratulations Msanchez. I'll be contacting you through a direct message to your Alibi profile in the very near future.

As for the rest of you, the new month kicks off another round of bad-photo guessing. Each week, you'll get a chance to correctly identify the restaurant my hasty, blurry, sometimes sideways photo depicts. The first one to do so will be entered into the very next randomized hat wrestling throwdown, which will take place at the end of the month.

Happy guessing and good luck!

The guitars and drums had to hit harder; the songwriting had to cut deeper; the choruses had to reach heights only hinted at on their previous outings. Frontman Ryan Key believes he and his bandmates—guitarist Ryan Mendez, violinist Sean Mackin, bassist Josh Portman and guest drummer Nate Young (Anberlin)—succeeded on all those fronts. “We really feel like we got where we wanted to be, and made a proper rock ‘n’ roll record,” Key says proudly.
