Weekly Alibi
 Mar 12 - 18, 2009 
We sit down with the author of Forgotten Albuquerque to discuss the city's history and Albuquerque's schizophrenic attitude toward its past.
NEWS/OPINION
UNM students who want child care on campus have to contend with a mile-long waiting list. And is the media coverage of the 13 bodies found on the Mesa insensitive?
Websclusive: Answer Me This
Chug down a sweet cup of your weekly news quiz.
Websclusive: Making Sausage
Want to bring your concealed firearm to T.G.I. Friday's to knock back a couple cold ones? The Senate's right there with you.
MUSIC
Experimental punk duo No Age engineers chaos and rocks bridges at 3 a.m. And O+S' self-titled album gets ruined by clanking cans and barking dogs.
Websclusive: Mac-Tire of Skye
New pipes on the block: Mac-Tire of Skye makes Celtic waves in Albuquerque. Plus, we link to a rainbow of St. Paddy’s events.
Websclusive: Music to Your Ears
Read the full Foxx-y interview with a Burque band that's headed to SXSW. And this just in—South by NewMex!
FOOD
Is APS' cheese sandwich policy ethical? Plus, find out how bad prisoners have it by making your own "Nutraloaf."
FILM & TV
Watching the brutal, sexually charged, deeply humanist, neon-noir epic that is Watchmen is enough to convince us that nothing could have prepared viewers for this experience. Meanwhile, Fanboys is a genial love letter to Star Wars geekdom disguised as a mildly raunchy road movie.
ARTS/LIT
Low-rider culture and imperialism blur in the de la Torre Brothers’ Meso-Americhanics. And ArtStreet strives to foster a creativity-centered cooperation for those with and without homes.

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.
