Scavenger Hunt 2011 slideshow!

We wish we could have run all of the submissions to our 2011 scavenger hunt in the paper. But thanks to the miracle of the Flickr slideshow, we can run them online! Check it out.

A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Points

Photos from our sixth annual scavenger hunt

Any one of the 70-odd teams that signed up will tell you: Our photo scavenger hunt ain’t easy. But they’ll also be quick to add that it’s one hell of a good time.

Contests

Hey, you! Sign up for the Alibi Scavenger Hunt!

The hundreds of folks who’ve done it already will tell you: Our annual Scavenger Hunt is an insane amount of sleep-deprived, only-in-Albuquerque-moments-filled fun. Here’s how it works:

Sign up online before 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21. At 5 p.m. that Friday, we'll email you the Scavenger Hunt list. Each item on the list has a different point value (a picture of you with a cockroach might be worth 10 points, while a picture of you with the Pope might be worth 10,000 points). Rack up as many points as you can.

You've got until Monday, Oct. 24, at 5 p.m. to submit your pictures online or in person. We'll give instructions on how to do so when we email you.

But first, you can get inspired by looking at last year’s Scavenger Hunt feature, with the 2010 list of items and points, some of the photos from the hunt, and a recap of the winning team’s strategy.

This Week's Feature: Scavenger Hunt 2010 results—with slideshows!

[ Fri Dec 3 2010 12:35 PM ]

Albuquerque scavengers had 72 hours to locate more than 100 items—find out the victors in this year's hunt.

Full story: 72-Hour Scavenging People

And here are some slideshows of more photos than we had room to put in the paper.

These are Flickr-brand slideshows, so that means (1) You need Flash installed to see them (iPhone users and Flash haters may visit our Flickr galleries directly); and (2) if you want to see the name and caption you have to click the “enlarge” icon and then click the “Show Info” link in the upper-right hand corner. OK, so it’s kinda rocket science. I agree. Blame Flickr.

The Winners: Team Night Rider / Dark Circles

Maybe Next Year You’ll Try Harder ...

... but thanks for playin’! Nice work, all.

72-Hour Scavenging People

The winners of our fifth annual scavenger hunt

Ashley Armstrong, the director of events at Los Poblanos Inn and Cultural Center, watched Alibi scavenger hunts come and go before she decided to sign up in 2010. When she finally sat down with the just-released list on the evening of Friday, Nov. 19, it looked easy. "Deceptive" is the word she uses now.

Shameless Self-Promotion

5th Annual Scavenger Hunt is this weekend!

Sign-up deadline is 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19

For the last four years we've asked readers to scour the city, taking pictures of themselves with assigned objects and sending them in to yours truly. This year, we're doing it again! You hunt for objects, and we'll comb through the entries and tally the scores. The winner gets their choice photos and an interview in the paper, along with heaps of fabulous prizes. This year, that could be you!

Here's how it works: Log on to alibi.com and fill out the registration form by Friday, Nov. 19, at 3 p.m. (If you don't have an alibi.com account, click here.) At 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, we'll e-mail you the Scavenger Hunt list. Each item on the list will have a different point value (a picture of you with a cockroach might be worth 10 points, while a picture of you with the Pope might be worth 10,000 points). Rack up as many points as you can.

You've got until Monday, Nov. 22, at 5 p.m. to submit your pictures online or in person. We'll give instructions on how to do so when we e-mail you. Please add scavenger-hunt@alibi.com to your address book so we get by your junk mail filter! The Scavenger Hunt issue hits stands Dec. 2!

Restaurant Review

Bombay Grill Cuisine of India

It’s nan-tastic

There's a fun game to play when you're eating Indian food called "What Kind of Tandoori Bread Would I Be?" Are you multi-layered and buttery like paratha? How about oily and rich like poori? Maybe you’re sweet and nutty like a slice of hot kashmiri nan. I like to think of myself like a fresh round of garlic nansmoking hot and a little acidic.
