Speaking Truth to Power
Laura Berg's letter to the Alibi got her investigated for sedition. Following a nationwide public outcry over her mistreatment, she has now courageously decided to speak out about this alarming attack on her constitutional right to free speech.
NEWS/OPINION
Punch Line
The words on the Statue of Liberty do not say "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free--but only if you're a desirable documented worker with a high-priced immigration lawyer."
MUSIC
Spotlight: Daddy Long Loin
Daddy Long Loin is gonna kill yer mama!
FOOD
Restaurant Review: Athena's Market Café
Not only does Athena's Market Café sell spectacular food, the restaurant also offers several fully equipped Mr. Potato Head dolls to distract fidgety youngsters so adults can chow down in peace. Now that's culinary brilliance.
FILM & TV
Failure to Launch
If only Failure to Launch had failed to launch--then we wouldn't have to be tortured by this formulaic, bottom-of-the-barrel dreck.
ARTS/LIT
Gallery Review: Looking Out, Looking In
A picture might be worth a thousand words, but some of the photographs in a new exhibit at UNM's Art Museum may very well leave you speechless.

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!
