EDIT: To clarify for anyone who may not have read the fine print on the fund-raising announcement, the donations will be used to defray the increasing costs of running this site. Up to now, Brian has borne all the costs himself, in addition to providing hours and hours of his time to maintain this marvelous forum.

Toughest grid in a long while. Initial glance for the meta yielded nothing; I may need Joe Ross's spreadsheet for this one. But until that's posted: Isaac! Laphroaig neat please!
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

On the 🏖
The site is just a web page, a meeting place, a clubhouse - it's the group that's special.

Ashore! Good one!

Oh right, the celebratory drink! It's raining in Boston, so let's make it a Dark & Stormy.

Why is it that telling a friend I see nothing results in the curtains falling from my eyes? I am on the beach. The cabana boy is watching baseball (The Rays of course), so drink orders may be a bit slow.

On the beach! I thought I would be grinding on this all weekend, but then had the Aha experience. Time to open up a bottle of Merlot.

On shore. But if I went with my gut feeling and submitted what I thought would be the answer as a guess before solving, I would have been wrong.
