Artists have toiled for millennia to capture the essence of true love. Alibi readers have done it for the past five years with ease.
In the weeks leading up to Feb. 14, our offices fill with professions of undying admiration, heartfelt pleas for forgiveness and downright begging for some "special" attention (none of it aimed at Alibi employees, thankfully). These tokens of eros are mailed (or walked) to we messengers of Cupid for the Alibi's annual Valentine's Day Card Contest. Using talents bestowed upon us by Aphrodite and the Muses, we select the most creative and inspirational to be reproduced in this, our most sentimental of issues (nevermind the themes of death and mutilation that kept cropping up in this year’s entries).
Many thanks to fellow judges Christie Chisholm, Marisa Demarco, Laura Marrich, Simon McCormack, Devin D. O'Leary and Jesse Schulz for their help sorting out the victors. All winners will receive perfect-date prize packs available for pickup at the front desk of the Alibi office (413 Central NW), Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Or call 346-0660 ext. 255 to discuss delivery options. Cheers to all who participated—we could feel the love.
