Tyler Hinman's "Drink Up!," the 41st AVCX puzzle of 2014, is 4/5 of difficulty. Good times!
Congratulations to Byron Walden, whose AVCX puzzle "Mismatched Socks" was nominated for Matt Gaffney's September Crossword of the Month. One of Francis Heaney's non-AVCX puzzles (the one linked to from here last week) was named co-winner.
