Flower Power: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sat Mar 21 2015 11:09 AM ]

Yesterday, spring sprang. Here in Fringecrest, nature is waking—unfurling leaves, buds and blooms along Ridgecrest Boulevard and throughout labyrinthine tributary neighborhoods. Dreaming of springtime last weekend, I selected Flower Power as the Alibi's weekly photo contest theme.

Nature proffers sensory gifts aplenty on this second day of spring. And kindred Alibi readers offered up some gorgeous photos of Albuquerque flora on Instagram (@weeklyalibi / #alibiflower). The spectrum of color on display in Burque is proving well worth the wait. Here at the Carrillo casa, winter jasmine and climbing roses exist in various stages of bloom—erupting cadmium yellow and carmine.

Scroll on and smell the metaphorical roses by scoping some of our favorite entries and this week's photo contest victor.

Quintessential Albuquerque: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sat Mar 14 2015 3:18 PM ]

Instagram is no longer the sovereign province of "the hipster." Your mom and grandma are probably there too, posting Rise-filtered snaps of their latest programming manual or regional cookbook. We dig Instagram because an inclusive ethos motivates our social media efforts. Put simply, we love seeing the world through your eyes.

So every week we reward one passionate Alibi reader-slash-shutterbug with $10 in Alibi Bucks. What can you buy with $10 Alibi Bucks? Right now, our half-price gift certificate selection includes tickets—to Southwest Chocolate & Coffee Fest (um, nom) and Naked Food Fair (a vegetarian food festival)—dining at Delish, Gen Kai, Pasión Latin Fusion, Shade Tree and The Shop! plus kung fu classes at Mantis and manicures at Polished. (Note: Deals listed above are at or below $10 aka stuff you could buy by winning $10 in Alibi Bucks—simply by posting to Instagram. Follow us on Instagram to learn this week's photo contest theme.)

Last week's theme was Quintessential Albuquerque (#alibiburque / @weeklalibi), and the winner is Instagram user @andreamichellelove29. Her ristra photo captures the earthy effulgence of two of New Mexico's core elements, red chile and sunshine. Please email samantha@alibi.com for deets on retrieving your prize package of $10 Alibi Bucks and an extra something or two (CDs, books and/or promotional schwag).

Ty Takes a Meal

Randomized edition

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Apr 2 2013 11:35 AM ]

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).

After a month of some seriously top-notch guessing, the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived. I've retrieved the Randomizer 3000 from its secured underground vault, deactivated the incredibly dangerous biological booby traps that prevent it from being misused by unscrupulous randomizers, and entered the PhotoGuesser names into its sophisticated data bank.

Emptyv. LundyJ. Okeefine. 27eh. Who will walk away with the big prize? Close your eyes and picture a swirling array of blinking LED lights, hear the click and hum of a thousand powerful ASIC circuits tabulating the probabilities and reticulating the splines.

*Bing!* It's done. The lovely Geoffrey Plant, Circulation Manager and contributing writer, receives the results:

LUNDYJ! You have won two $10 Alibi Bucks certificates to Mirai Light and Healthy Japanese Cuisine, Sake and Beer!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I must deactivate the Randomizer 3000, which involves a team of four technicians, 25 pounds of dry ice and a six pack of beer.

Our weekly photo game

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Mar 26 2013 2:03 PM ]

Congratulations to emptyv for identifying the wood stove in Cecilia's downtown dining room!

I get the feeling that this week's restaurant might be a little more challenging for you guys (the clientele seemed a bit more ... midwestern than I peg our readership [that's a hint]), but feel free to prove me wrong.

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 tap it out in code on the wall of your prison cell; put them in the comments section or you won't win). The first person to do so with the correct answer will be declared Dark Lord of the PhotoGuessers for the Week AND, at the end of the month, will be entered into a drawing for an Alibi Bucks prize along with the other Dark Lords of the PhotoGuessers.

Got it?

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.

Okay, GUESS.

The Alibi's weekly contest

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Feb 12 2013 9:50 AM ]

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.

Got it?

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.

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.
