Weekly Alibi

Weekly Alibi

The "Weekly Alibi" is a free weekly newspaper published in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"The Alibi's" strongest points include Albuquerque's first "alternative personals" and "I saw you" personals, their film reviews, odds and ends, and entertainment guide. Their yearly "Best of Burque" (Burque is a regional Spanish nickname for Albuquerque, pronounced BURR-kay, however the overwhelmingly white staff at the Alibi tend to pronounce it with a more anglicized version pronounced ber-kee.) awards, which cover everything from "Best Community Action Group" to "Best All-You-Can-Eat" to "Best Gay Bar", are arguably the most coveted retailer awards in the city.

"The Alibi" first appeared as a bi-weekly newspaper called "NuCity", but was forced to change its name to avoid a legal dispute with a similar Chicago newspaper entitled "New City".
