Weekly Alibi
 Sep 20 - 26, 2007 
From the first sassy 12-page black-and-white issue in 1992 to this week's 72-page behemoth, the Alibi's been putting type to page for 15 years. We've got our dress all laid out for our Quinceañera. Say goodbye to Editor Steven Robert Allen as he joins the ranks of other former staffers in our "Where Are They Now?"
NEWS/OPINION
The Church of Scientology sets its sights on a big building Downtown. Only dirt stands between Albuquerque and radioactive waste. (P.S. Your regularly scheduled letters section will return next week. Peruse the Hall of Fame here instead.)
MUSIC
A festival of discovery! The third-annual ¡Globalquerque! lets you travel without discomfort or much of a budget. Plus, the songwriter from The New Pornographers spills his guts.
FOOD
There's something to be said for a little old-school kindness and top-notch customer service, like the kind you'll find at Oak Tree Café.
FILM & TV
Shot in New Mexico, In the Valley of Elah starring Tommy Lee Jones, is a war-weary mystery sure to stir up controversy.
ARTS/LIT
Ah, art photography, the tacit way for aristocrats to look at naked people. Twenty photographers examine Rose in 1x20 at the Downtown Contemporary Arts Center.

RSSRaw posts and updates from our writers with info too timely or uncategorizable for print. What, we said something stupid? Chime in, buddy.

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!
