This week's contest is titled "Group Outings" by Patrick Berry

The answer to this week's contest is a five-letter word.

Good luck with the grid and the meta

And catch the Q&A if you missed it, they did a great job

And a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Meg Duvall for getting the special contest and winning the mug.

Nice one.

I will have a Berry Margarita in honor of its creator (and in belated celebration of the real Mexican Independence Day).

On the beach! 🏖 🍷

Apparently listening to meta puzzle construction discussion and solving tips for an hour is a great warm-up!

Enjoyed the talk and today’s puzzle very much! 👏🏻

We have two - Jenny and Cathy and to quote Dragnet - the names have been changed to protect the innocent
