Weekly Alibi
 Dec 25 - 31, 2008 
Financial turmoil, unprecedented bailouts, the extinction of our biggest corporate brands and lipstick-wearing pit bulls were just a few of the memories from 2008. Now it's time to forget it all and party your face off. Get the drop on what's popping off in our annual New Year's Party Guide.
NEWS/OPINION
Pour yourself a glass of the Rio Grande. And just how many calls is the state's unemployment office bombarded with every day?
MUSIC
The Cherry Poppin' Daddies never was a pure swing band, but the group's live sets are filled with the stuff. Plus, on its fourth album, Fall Out Boy sticks with catchy, fast-paced choruses and occasional clapping. The record will satisfy the faithful, but probably won't bring anyone new into the fold.
FOOD
Farina Pizzeria and Wine Bar is the sexy, punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café. Plus, when faced with impending financial doom, drink beer that's strong, dark and cheap.
FILM & TV
Celebrated couch-jumper Tom Cruise is poorly cast in the historical action drama Valkyrie. Meanwhile, cradle-to-grave romance The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is grounded in heavy emotional truth.
ARTS/LIT
Find out why STOVE is closing its doors, and who's moving in after it shuts down.
