Congrats to commenter 27eh for identifying Christy Mae's Restaurant from the Tricarico family portrait (it turns out that Christy Mae hasn't been involved in the place for a couple of decades now).

Prize day edition

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Mar 5 2013 1:13 PM ]

Another month has passed, and the day of the TTM drawing is here!

But first, I must address a point of controversy. A scandal, even. There were three successful photo-guessers last month, but only two will be competing for the prize. Why? It turns out that last week's winner, GardenGnome, was actually ineligible to play and his name has been cast out of the Randomizer 4000.

With that ugliness out of the way, let us turn to the big event. Our two contestants are commenter Schmetlzy, who deduced Loyola's Family Restaurant from a roadrunner themed lamp, and commenter Evarockstar who correctly identified Limonata Italian Street Food Caffe from a group of crowded shelves.

The Alibi's weekly contest

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Feb 26 2013 10:56 AM ]

UPDATED: See the comments below for a hint!

First of all, congratulations to NOBODY for guessing last week's photo. That's right, none of you could figure it out. So I'm giving you guys some homework: Get over to Budai Gourmet Chinese as quickly as you can and scarf up some of their excellent food. Don't forget to ask for the secret menu!

Now, a quick rules run down on how this works: See the picture? It's from a restaurant that I've been to recently and it is SIDEWAYS. Figure out where it is and post your answer in a comment below (not on Facebook, don't email them to my Alibi account, don't write them down in your diary; put them in the comments section or you won't win). The first person to do so with the correct answer will be declared Emperor PhotoGuesser of the Week AND, at the end of the month, will be entered into a drawing for an Alibi Bucks prize along with the other Emperor PhotoGuessers.

Ty Takes a Meal

BIG WINNER EDITION

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Feb 5 2013 12:11 PM ]

The air is thick with excitement. Two weeks of intense bad-photo guessing has resulted in two very skilled semi-finalists, commenters emptyv (who correctly sussed out B2B Bistronomy from a portion of its decorative blackboard) and msanchez (who deduced Duran's Station from a glimpse of its beer cooler).

Weekly Alibi photo guessing restaurant contest thing

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Jan 29 2013 9:41 AM ]

First of all, congratulations to last week's winner, commenter emptyv! He managed to guess the mystery restaurant (the excellent Bistronomy B2B) just about 30 seconds after I posted it. Let's see if this week's shot proves to be a little more challenging.

Announcing an Alibi blog only contest

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Jan 22 2013 12:00 PM ]

Hey there, reader. Do you like winning things? Do you like staring at terrible photos and wondering what they're of? And, most importantly, do you like eating out in Albuquerque restaurants enough that you've memorized their decor and can spot it instantly in the above mentioned terrible photos?

Well, then I've got a contest for you.
