This week's contest is by Patrick Berry

The answer to this week's contest crossword is a place where you might give one-word answers.

Good luck with the grid and the meta

Good luck, fellow Muggles!

Happy to find myself

On shore. I was about to post saying that I had finished the grid but had no idea about the meta, but then I had a sudden inspiration and solved it.

originally posted over in the Acapulco Lounge ...

Given there are more than 600 Muggles and this video has only 130+ views, I am willing to venture not many have seen it. See Mike Schenk and Mike Miller as they discuss the evolution of Muggles and the quest for a Mug.

See y'all Thursday!

If only FORTY was a correct answer, I'd be on a 4 week solving streak. :kicksrock:
