Puzzle 119 – “A Little Spicy”
Back with a themeless that’s just the tiniest bit wider than usual, to allow for three 16-letter spanners going across. Those were the three seed entries here–all of which, in different senses of the phrase, could be described by this puzzle’s title. Meanwhile, I like the somewhat coincidental symmetry of the first and last across entries.
Favorite clues here: 60-Across is my favorite question-mark clue that’s showed up here in a bit. And 19-Down for the fun fact.
I think the cluing here is a little gentler than last week’s tough-but-fair. Hope you dig it.
As always, comments welcomed. Please enjoy. Happy solving, friends.
