2016 Valentine’s Day Card Contest Winners
Oh, Saint Valentine, obscure third century saint, look what you've created. While the well loved find the right vase for their dozen roses and the unattached carry on as normal, we at the Alibi mark the occasion elementary school-style. Everyone gets a valentine, because we love you. From us to you, the handpicked winners of our Valentine's Day Card contest—in first place Cassie Brown's totally literal anatomical gesture of devotion and in second place, Dianne M. Chavez's card is all frills, with enough beads and fabric to make us clutch her paper heart to our real ones. It's not just about receiving here, so we've wrangled a number of great prizes from the sponsors of the contest, Self Serve Sexuality Resource Center and The Chocolate Dude. Self Serve, Albuquerque's women-owned purveyor of sex-positive, empowering items and educational events, generously donated a $50 gift card for our winner and a $25 gift card for second place. Not to mention, they have compiled an awesome Alternative Valentine's Day Guide—see their website, selfservetoys.com, for that. And everyone's favorite dude, you know, The Chocolate Dude, came through with a large box of his one-of-a-kind artisanal chocolates (that's a $30 value) for Cassie and a second one for Dianne. From truffles to the offbeat Chupacabra Crunch and the emblematic Dude Food—this guy has got your sweet tooth covered in February and beyond. Congratulations to our winners! Thanks for spreading the love and sharing your talents. We'd still be scribbling on construction paper without you.
