Weekly Alibi
 May 5 - 11, 2005 
The Kids Are Not Alright
How can you have any pudding, if you don't eat yer meat! Mayor Martin Chavez says he wants to promote all-ages venues Downtown, but his plan might just put the Launchpad and Sunshine Theater out of business.
NEWS/OPINION
Payne's World
Greg Payne shares a word to the wise: There's five months until election day and the mayoral race is just getting started.
Agro Meets Urban Bliss
For some residents of Towne Park, the gated community's board of directors is acting less like a benevolent authority figure and more like a gestapo.
MUSIC
Music to Your Ears
Two decades after The Swans, Michael Gira still prefers the sparkling sound of discomfort.
FOOD
Restaurant Review: Here's the Beef
No surprises here: Pho #1 Vietnamese Cuisine & Grill might just serve the number one pho in town.
FILM & TV
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Although it probably won't win over any new fans, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy successfully blends "Doctor Who" and "Monty Python" into an amusing, anarchy-filled diversion.
ARTS/LIT
Performance Review
Hedda Gabler is wicked fine theater performed by some of the best actors in town. Catch it this weekend at the Cell Theatre!

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!
