I don't see myself putting in the time to solve this one. My first grandchild arrived two weeks ago and my meta mojo has disappeared. I missed my first WSJ in a long time the weekend he was born, and while I look at metas when I think of it between visits, I think it may be time for a break if my MGWCC streak dies here. But somehow, it doesn't really bother me to miss one the way it used to! :)
My first was born on Halloween! Congrats!

My brain kinda went to mush after that.

This is a week 5 for me. I can’t see a starting point.

Glad I’m not alone in seeing nothing yet.

Got absolutely nothing (outside of some not-yet-concrete starting points). If anybody wants to compare notes I'm game.

Egad! I keep saying to myself, "Matt thinks this is a week 3!"

Are you the first Muggle to solve then?

Speaking of which - surprised no one has mentioned 3D yet.

Like many others, I have the beginnings of some ideas, but nothing more. I’d love to brainstorm with someone! Lemme know

Got there but wow, that was definitely in week 5 territory. I’m so relieved that I can sleep tonight 😅

Grid done, and thoroughly explored two rabbit holes, but my submission was wrong. 😞 Oh well, c'est la vie!

I am a novice and this is my first look at a MGWCC puzzle. Signed up Friday and worked the grid. Looked for solid navigational aids but didn't find much. Found one lead - perhaps a rabbit hole - but went on to find what I BELIEVED was the answer and submitted it earlier today. Just checked the leaderboard and it was updated and my name is not on it. I trust that that means I got it WRONG.

Looking forward to the education and learning process after the answer is posted. Onward and upward!

This is NOT a typical week 3 MGWCC. More like a week 5. There’s all kinds of help on this forum for novices. We are a friendly bunch, and some of us have very particular tastes when it comes to beer.

Whew, beam me up! I was in a really convincing rabbit hole with my first (unsubmitted) answer, glad I held off and kept looking. The second answer was a much better click.

How long has Isaac been serving Thanksgiving turkey? I don't think that was there a few hours ago!

Solved....and that's all I will say.

I did share some thoughts w/ Matt in the comments (when submitting my answer).

I would appreciate some collaboration or a gentle nudge in the right direction - have a suspected rabbit hole and that's about it.

This feels like a Cliff Clavin Jeopardy puzzle.

What is something I've never heard of?
