Weekly Alibi
 Apr 3 - 9, 2008 
Where's the best place to see your favorite band? Which newscaster has the best hair configuration? Who's the sportiest local athlete, and where should you take your car to get fixed? See how Albuquerque voted inside this year's Best of Burque Issue.
NEWS/OPINION
Our city is a lady that loves her dog but doesn't care much for others; eats badly, but exercises regularly; and lives in a violent part of the country, but doesn't let that discourage her from going out on the town. Plus, swimming with the fishes. And is the cover of this week's Vogue implicitly racist?
MUSIC
Kate Mann returns to the land that influenced her music and her back tattoo while Andy Milne and Dapp Theory blend jazz, rock, hip-hop and spoken word elements into an innovative, socially conscious mix that grooves.
FOOD
Amadeo's Pizza and Subs bakes up pizza with no frills or fancy footwork—just the way we like it. Plus, find the best wine to dance to.
FILM & TV
Taxi to the Dark Side has the elegance of an argument that is formed by logic and shaped by empathy. And Stop-Loss' message fails to enrapture the masses.
ARTS/LIT
The College National Poetry Slam finds warmer weather in Albuquerque. And Ceridwen Dovey’s Blood Kin shines a bright light on a ritual worship of power.

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!
