Let It Begin With Me
'Tis the twilight before Christmas and all through the house not a shopper has stirred yet--not even in Taos! The stockings you hung by the chimney are bare, but the thought of the mall makes you rip out your hair. Weekly Alibi knows of that terrible feeling, so we rounded up gifts that are cheap and appealing. From music to movies, donations and more, just wait 'til you see what else lies in store! PLUS ... give the ultimate gift this year by lending your time and support to worthy causes around town.

Sign of the times: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

Each week we reward one passionate Alibi reader-slash-Instagrammer with $10 in Alibi Bucks. Alibi Bucks can help you get anything from tickets to Naked Food Fair to a sandwich at Cafe Lush and each week we have new deals to spend your bucks on.

This week we asked you to tag us in pictures of your favorite Albuquerque signs and you posted some pretty killer retro signs.

Our second runner up, gq.ninja posted this awesome old school KOB sign. The vintage simplicity is really a sign of the times and we love the bare tree branches in the distance. Thanks for posting!

This week's winner is lettersfromburque's gorgeous picture of the Helen's Bakery sign. We love the backdrop of our dreamy Albuquerque skies and the vibrant turquoise cross against the weathered white wooden sign. Thank you for posting! To collect your prize and Alibi Bucks email Amelia@alibi.com.

Stay tuned for next week's guidelines and if you don't already, follow us on Instagram!
