It's time to chow down on the winners of this year's Best of Burque Restaurants. Who's got the best bacon? What about the best green chile cheeseburger? Best tofu? Best ice cream? The readers have spoken, and their answers are revealed.
NEWS/OPINION
Meet the new director of the Bureau of Elections. Two months after it was raided, there are still no charges filed against Krazy Kat Records. And Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin wants to bring jobs back to America.
MUSIC
Reggae-rock act Pepper has a Hawaiian state of mind. And a local software developer wants you to craft adventurous tracks with odd time signatures.
FOOD
China Luck is another stop on the underground egg roll railroad. And the nutty pink paste of walnuts and charred bell peppers known as muhammara gets better when it sits.
FILM & TV
DiCaprio and Crowe are a sharp pair in the sophisticated espionage drama Body of Lies. And "Chocolate News" has David Alan Grier back on the boob tube doing what he does best—sketch comedy.
ARTS/LIT
The artists in Cautionary Tales: A Visual Dystopia trade in ruin and decline, while Finding a Pulse offers hope. Plus, UNM's production of Frankenstein looks straight into the mind of a monster's creator.
Websclusive: Eve of Whim

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!
