Puzzle 133 – “Grand Openings”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Even though it still feels a few days early to be talking about New Year’s, here we are at this site’s last puzzle of 2023… and with a title, inspired by this one’s seed entry at 25-Across, that’s the exact opposite of an ending. Go figure.

25-Across isn’t my favorite clue here, though… that’s probably 52-Across. And I do love the 6-Across / 11-Across pairing.

I hope everyone’s having a pleasant holiday week as the year winds down. (Christmas here has been unusually low-key but nice.) Next time I post here, it’ll be 2024, and I’ll keep the puzzles coming throughout the year to come. Every Tuesday. You know where to find ’em.

Happy solving, yall. Comments welcomed as always. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Good one!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Very fun!

    45-D intersecting with 47-A made me smile.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Another good puzzle and I liked the Miami Vice and John Waite references!

    But maybe the clue for 61A needs to read “See 18-Across”?
