Ty Takes a Meal
Prize day edition

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.
As usual, the contestant's names were placed within the secure confines of the Randomizer 4000. Our guest drawer, music editor Samantha Anne Carrillo then activated the randomizing sequence (mixed up the names with her fingers) and then selected the lucky winner. Two impartial observers (myself and staff writer Mark Lopez) were unhand to make sure that everything was on the up and up.
The winner? Commenter Schmeltzy!
Congratulations, you've won two $10 Alibi Bucks for breakfast at Cafe Lush.
Check back tomorrow for another mysterious photograph and another chance to win.

The Alibi's weekly contest

First of all, congratulations to commenter evarockstar, for correctly identifying Limonata Italian Street Food Caffe from its back wall.
A quick rules run down: See the picture? It's from a restaurant that I've been to recently. 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 Lord 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 Lord PhotoGuessers.
Now, one more thing. If you win, I'll be notifying you via Alibi.com's message feature, which some of you may not know about. Look at the upper-right hand corner of the screen. See that block of red text that tells you if you're logged in, etc.? If I send you a message, that block will also display a notification along the lines of "2 messages." Click on it, and it will take you to your inbox where a cheery "YOU ARE A WINNER" message may very well be waiting. Read it and then write back to me to acknowledge that you've received it. You can also get to your inbox through the "my alibi" drop down menu.
This is important because our very first winner from last month still hasn't gotten back to me. Msanchez? Are you out there? CHECK YOUR MESSAGES. If you don't get back to me by the end of today, I'll be passing the prize on to the runner-up.
