Welcome to another edition of pandemic puzzling! Today I have what I believe to be a hard Friday/easy Saturday puzzle for you. As usual, this puzzle contains clues that would be rejected by every single publication out there. Which is why this experimental space is so fun for me. I hope you find this an enjoyable solve.
For those of you who follow this blog regularly, I have next Tuesday’s NYT crossword, so check it out and I hope you like it. Check out my comments on XWord and Wordplay for more details. If you are coming to this site for the first time after hearing about it on XWord or Wordplay: welcome! I hope you’ll sign up for notifications and be a regular part of our little crew.
Stay safe and stay strong my puzzle peeps. We will get through this. I wish all the best for you and your families. Now it’s back to tending my (hopefully) tasty pot of Maryland Crab Soup. Email me if you’d like the recipe!
I'm a husband, father, psychologist, musician, and crossword constructor living in Catonsville, MD. My puzzles have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and its syndicates, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Andrews McMeel Universal Syndicate, and crossword apps such as the Redstone Crossword Puzzle App on iOS and Google Play. All of that means I've been published in every newspaper in the United States and many others around the world. And now I've been published here at Grid Therapy, which allows me the amazing freedom to let who I am shine through. Maybe it will occasionally rub you the wrong way politically. I don't know. But in this space I get to not care. I hope you enjoy your time here on the crossword couch! I'd love to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions. If you're interested in having a custom crossword puzzle created for your event or organization, email me at drtrent (at) gmail.com.
