Enter the Valentine's Day Contest
Express yourself, win fabulous prizes
By John Bear [ Thu Jan 27 2011 1:09 PM ]
There is still time to enter Alibi's Eighth Annual Valentine's Day Card Contest. A few entries have trickled in and there's some really good stuff.
As I said before, anything creepy is good. Also, sending stuff laden with precious metals, jewels, cash is always a plus. Journalism is my passion, but it ain't paying the bills. Any cards with valuables I can resell will help ease my transition into organized crime.
Remember: One entry per person. They shouldn't be bigger than an eight and a half by 11 inch piece of paper and should weigh no more than a five kilogram gold brick. Hint.
Mail them to 2118 Central Ave. SE, P.O. Box 151. Entries must be received by Feb. 1. No animal parts, bodily fluids or anything else that will bother my OCD.
Thank you. Have fun.
The winners will be displayed in the Feb. 10 issue of the Alibi.

A drive through gallery event is happening on the outside of an old barbecue restaurant on Central Ave. at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 17.

The exhibition is intended as a photographic dialogue project between the cities of London, Seville/Bilbao and Albuquerque.
The event takes place between 6756-6898 Central Ave SE, near San Pedro. After this the exhibition moves to El Paso to be shown at the border crossing bridge.
