Weekly Alibi
 Sep 18 - 24, 2008

NEWS/OPINION
Albuquerque's about to start drinking river water. A good-natured midway worker tells us what it's like to be employed at the State Fair. And John McCain picks a fight with the media.
MUSIC
17 Hippies stumps iTunes' genre-classification system at ¡Globalquerque! Plus, a faux-interview with Ani DiFranco.
FOOD
A trip to Northern New Mexico yields bear omelet and roasted lamb heads.
FILM & TV
At long last, Santa Fe has a Metaphysical Film Festival. And the locally produced TV pilot "Legal Hawks" hits the KiMo.

Three new exhibits speak to the guts and idealism of youth. And Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz takes the Alibi's call from his hotel bathroom.

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!
