A high number of seed entries survived until the end of this one: 17-, 37-, and 52-Across and 3- and 9-Down. This is an older construction that I came back to, and I’m glad that I did; this even predates the website by a long, long while. But I still feel like it encapsulates the vibe of this website, so I went back through it and redid some of the clues. Some of the long entries (say, 32-, 37- and 52-Across and 9-Down) may have you think that I was in a sad, bitter, and sarcastic mood when I constructed the puzzle — maybe I was, I don’t know.

My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle was that the 45-Across drink was not only a favorite of LBJ’s, but also did he even install a tap for it in the White House so he could have it whenever he wanted.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
