Announcing an Alibi blog only contest

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."

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #261: I have walked out onto the stage.

I am late for J's play. G is already there. I rush into the building and realize that I have walked out onto the stage. I put my head down and rush across to a plush chair and sit down. The actors continue talking to each other, saying their lines, doing their lives. I get a dirty look from a guy on my left in a black felt hat. I must be in his place.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #243: There are horses with hats.

I am watching a parade. There are horses with hats and painted elephants. I think I see my sister-in-law and try to rewind the dream to make sure. Now there is an all-child marching band dressed in white shoes and red sequins. Somewhere a kid shouts "Peanuts!"

Webgame Wednesday: Pursuit of Hat

In Pursuit of Hat you're a ragdoll-like biped who simply wants to wear his (her? its?) snazzy chapeau. In order to achieve this goal, you'll be asked to traverse a series of puzzle-like plateaus. Jump, climb and, if need be, rip off your own limbs to get where you want. You heard me, rip off your limbs. All of them, if necessary. Personally speaking, I'd rather have legs than a hat, but I'm not one to judge others.

Fashion and Charity

At first glance Princess Beatrice's tea rose hat looks like a Cindy Lou Who hairdo. Don't be fooled, this is no Dr. Seuss invention, but a design by Philip Treacy.

The extravagant hat worn by Princess Beatrice to the royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, got almost as much attention as the wedding itself. The hat inspired mockery, admiration and even a Facebook page. Now Beatrice is giving up the head piece to help benefit children's charities. The bidding on eBay.com, which began this week, has now reached more than $35,000.

The auction is being overseen by Auction For A Cause and all proceeds will go to The The Little Bee Initiative, a campaign set up by Princess Beatrice. The money raised by auctioning off the hat will be split evenly between two charities, UNICEF and UK Children in Crisis.

For all of the prosperous fashionistas out there, there is still time to place your bid on this truly individual hat. The auction closes on May 22, so hurry.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #140: A man in an orange cap

A man in an orange cap stands behind the tree at our bird feeder. He gives us bird feeding instructions for optimum reproduction enhancement. I smooth the sand with my foot as he talks. G is silent. I have to get rid of this weirdo.
