It’s that time of year! In a couple short weeks, Lamplighter Brewery will be releasing their next run of Wordplay, a delicious brew for which I create beer can label puzzles. If you’re ever in Boston, I can’t recommend their taproom enough. I’ve worked on perhaps half the puzzles you’ve seen on this site at their bar–they also serve pretty ding dang good coffee in the morning.
I write to you today from my brother’s house in Long Island where we’re celebrating his birthday. We had to bounce early from Lollapuzzoola after puzzle 3 to get here, so my apologies if I missed you in NYC! I gather that congratulations are in order for friend of the blog and crossword links purveyor Matt Gritzmacher! Kudos, Matty!
I’m going to skip puzzle notes for “Track Your Order” this week, since I’m going to be talking about it in depth at a puzzle event over at Lamplighter in a couple weeks. Watch this space for details!
Happy solving, friends!
