Weekly Alibi photo guessing restaurant contest thing

Where is it?
Where is it?

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.

What is this all about? Each week, I'm posting a haphazard and generally terrible photo from one of the restaurants I've been to recently. Your job is to figure out which one it is and post the correct answer in the comments below (it doesn't count if you comment on facebook or shout it at your roommate or whatever). Whoever does so first will be eligible for the monthly Mysterious Alibi Bucks Drawing of Mystery (so named because I don't know which Alibi buck your vying for until the day of the drawing) wherein one lucky winner will receive a FREE Alibi Buck.

Now, because the contest only started in mid-January, today's winner will have a much better chance of winning the big prize (with only one other correct commenter to vie with). So stop reading this and start guessing! (Commenters who have correctly guessed in January have to wait till next month to try again.)

Which restaurant is pictured above?

Announcing an Alibi blog only contest

MYSTERY RESTAURANT

Where could it be?

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.

Once a week, probably on a Monday, or maybe on a Tuesday, or maybe on some other day, I'll post a photo from one of my culinary expeditions around town. Your job will be to identify which restaurant it comes from in a comment. First one to post the correct answer will be eligible for the BIG MONTHLY ALIBI BUCKS DRAWING, meaning that you'll have a 1/4 or 1/5 (I am bad at both months and math) chance of winning a free gift certificate to a local eatery.

Now, January is just about over, but as a special incentive we're going to go ahead and start playing now anyway. Meaning that, since there are only two Tuesdays left in the month (including this one), the winning commenter will have double odds of landing the Alibi Bucks prize.

So, there it is, up in the corner: a joint I stopped in at last week. Where is it? Winner will be announced next Tuesday (or maybe Monday) along with the next restaurant pic. And then the winner of that week's contest will go HEAD TO HEAD with the winner of this week's contest in a battle royale I like to call "Draw the winner from a hat."

video games

Webgame Wednesday. Moby Dick: The Videogame

Moby Dick, the novel, is slow going. Trust me. Entire chapters are given over to descriptions of rope. There's a chapter about paintings of whales that the author liked. There's a chapter about paintings of whales that he did like. And so on. Moby Dick: The Videogame, on the other hand, has none of that tedious crap. It's got a whale eating tiny people in boats. Which is pretty much all you want out of Moby Dick anyway. Chomp stuff, grow big, don't run out of air—and when you're big enough, come flying out of the water to crush some ships. Satisfying!
