Helen Fielding and the Overactive Imagination
Love it or loathe it, we couldn't resist the temptation when Bridget Jones spilled her guts in international syndication. Now author Helen Fielding is back between the paper sheets, this time with an international woman of mystery.
NEWS/OPINION
News Interview
Doves and hawks may always be at odds, but they've got to agree on at least one thing; war is hell. Staff Sergeant Jimmy Massey talks about his experience in the Middle East and how it's changed his perspective back home.
MUSIC
Blue Note
Looking for some sonic redemption? The latest takes on these centuries-old tunes are sure to give you a shot of divine inspiration.
FOOD
Cool Stuff
Raise your rellenos high and repeat after us: "Que viva la comida de Nuevo Mexico!" Why front your tastebuds with sorry-ass national brands when you can represent these tasty local flavors?
FILM & TV
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Director Chris Columus (Home Alone) has stepped down from the Harry Potter series, with unlikey Alfonso Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También) taking up the reigns. The result? Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is a stylish and magically entertaining sequel for kids of all ages.
ARTS/LIT
Author Interview
With a literary voice that's as beautiful as it is definitive, New Mexico historian Marc Simmons revisits one of our favorite subjects--Albuquerque.

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!
