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).
Congratulations to emptyv for identifying the wood stove in Cecilia's downtown dining room!
Congratulations to Okeefine for correctly identifying O'Niell's Irish Pub in Nob Hill (and even spelling the name right) from some table-side metalwork. Now, send me a message Okeefine (email@example.com)
Congratulations to Lundy J for correctly identifying the Model Pharmacy from a herd of ceiling-strung elephants. Now on to the next!
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.
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.
Congratulations to commenter schmeltzy, for correctly identifying Loyola's Family Restaurant from a light fixture.
First of all, congratulations to commenter evarockstar, for correctly identifying Limonata Italian Street Food Caffe from its back wall.
First of all, congratulations to commenter msanchez for winning last month's prize of two $10 Alibi Bucks to Tia Betty Blue's!
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).
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.
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.
