PUZZLE 156

Puzzle 156 – “Three Years”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Puzzle #156 means we’ve been at this for three years on this site now, yall! And it also means I haven’t really improved all that much at titling these things. This title sorta links up with 1-Across, but it’s not like that’s the most interesting entry here.

On the other hand, 61-Across… I mean, I’m not saying it was the seed entry, but it was not not the seed entry. And here we are. Overall, this one feels a little crunchier than my last few themeless have been; I think the cluing is fair but the fill may not be the smoothest I’ve ever done.

Favorite clues here… I mean, 10-Down feels cute. But truth be told, it’s probably 47-Down because look, it’s stuck in your head now, isn’t it?

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

  1. Congrats on the milestone!

  2. happy anniversary! I’m embarrassed that even though I’ve been in the band for a production of guys and dolls — and it was even my favourite music to play of the things of that kind that I’ve done! — I didn’t know 19A and had to get it from crosses. sorry frank.

    meanwhile, re 47D … yes. yes, it is.

    Just a coincidence that 61A shows up the same week that the WoF clip goes viral?? Hmm…

    Congrats on 3yr though!
