Puzzle #82: Chow Fun

 Hey gang,

It's been a little while since my last puzzle here! But I've been busy elsewhere: you can find collaborations with Norah Sharpe in Lemonade Disco (a cryptic), AVCX Trivia, and These Puzzl3s Fund Abortion. I also had the most recent AVCX Cryptic! It was a joy to work with Nate Cardin, and I'm very happy with how it turned it out! I've now had a puzzle at all of the various AVCX branches (Classic, AVCX+ (themeless), Lil AVC X (midi), Cryptic, and Trivia)! I'm very grateful to all the incredible puzzlemakers over there who I've gotten a chance to work with along the way.

Alright, enough of that. Here's what you came for: a friendly themed puzzle. 







Mmm, carrot cake

Puzzle #93: I'm Only One Man (with Norah Sharpe)

 Hi gang, Back with a new themeless after a little hiatus. The puzzle work continues apace! I'm part of a lovely leadership team over at Lil AVC X, along with Rafa Musa, Olivia Mitra Framke, and Sally Hoelscher. We recently finished putting together the team of editors for 2024, which includes Norah Sharpe (under her government name)! This puzzle, like every collaboration with Norah , was a joy to make. Norah says, "The structure of this one was inspired by some of the gridwork that Brian Thomas has been up to lately (see this one and this one ). My favorite clues are 16A, 39A, and 51D. Thanks as ever to Will for having me over. There's only a few days left to send in your applications for the 2024 Lil AVC X roster! Details here . And speaking of Lil, please try our "Happy Hour" midi from earlier this week."   (If OneDrive prompts a log-in, try opening in a private window)   .puz   PDF   Solution Mmm, mini smores cups
