"Where's The Rest?" - September 11, 2020

#1

Post by Bob cruise director » Thu Sep 10, 2020 4:04 pm

This week's contest is titled WHERE'S THE REST? by Matt Gaffney

The answer to this week's contest is a four-letter verb that I hope this puzzle doesn't make you do.

Great Q&A by the puzzle team

Good luck with the grid and the meta

On the beach.

Went to Zuma Beach in Malibu yesterday, it was refreshingly gray and cool after all the heat and smoky air.

I'm good with that, Peter! In fact I'm thrilled -- we both beat Al Sisti!
Good luck, fellow Muggles!

Ashore. Novel puzzle!

Have under an inch, inch & a half in Michter's, Maker's Mark, Evan Williams, & Buffalo Trace bottles. Will celebrate, tomorrow night, with a finger or two of the Evan Williams.

🥃 Some bourbon & branch to start the weekend. (Ignore the ice in the emoji, please.)
