Christopher Adams is a very talented constructor who had a great Friday puzzle in the New York Times a couple of weeks ago. You should check out his puzzle site at arctan(x)words. A delightful thing he has been doing during this time of social distancing is solving puzzles on his Twitch stream while enjoying a few tasty beverages. The chat on those Twitch sessions has been a lot of fun to be a part of.
One of the puzzles he solved at the end of the night earlier this week was a crossword put out by Wendy’s via social media. As we discussed Wendy’s while watching him solve their not-quite-as-bad-as-Vox crossword, a particular menu item was mentioned, and I proclaimed then and there that I would work it into a puzzle within 3 days. This puzzle is the fulfillment of that promise. I couldn’t think of a theme quickly enough which could incorporate it as an entry, so you will find it mixed into the fill.
Also I have the Universal Sunday puzzle this week. I’ll post a link on my ‘Published Puzzles’ page when it goes live.
I hope you enjoy this Grid Therapy offering. Hurry back now!
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.
