NEWS/OPINION
The Place in Nob Hill
Take that, dirt lot in Nob Hill! Mixed-use strikes again as a three-story development is slated to be built at the old Baca site, located between Wellesley and Tulane on Central.
MUSIC
Spotlight: The Ground Beneath CD Release Party
Simon McCormack takes a little trip to "Talent City" and brings back souvenirs from local nu-metal jockeys The Ground Beneath. Turns out a spell concocted with a Gibson Explorer, a lock of Tim Stroh's hair and hard work can result in a bitchin' album.
FOOD
Dining Out Special
Make your New Year's dinner reservation now. We've compiled a guide to let you in on what's to eat and drink in the desert on the last evening of 2005.
FILM & TV
The Producers
From movie to musical back to movie, Mel Brooks' The Producers is fit for those who can't wait to see cheap Hollywood comedies like Weekend at Bernie's turned into musicals (and, possibly, back into movies).
FEATURE
It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over
For drinks, entertainment and who to call when your plumbing explodes, this week we've designed for you, loyal readers, a special New Year's guide that will help you plan your party or evening out. We'll put you well on your way to singing "Auld Lang Syne" out of tune with champagne and other humans, instead of watching Dick Clark's ball at home with your cat.
ARTS/LIT
Author Interview
Frank McCourt, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Teacher Man, discusses, among other things, how he found salvation in teaching.

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!
