Today's puzzle is a 13x13 circular midi from Adrian Johnson called ":)" that we think will put a smile on your face. We'd call it a 1.5/5 difficulty. But as Adrian says: "My happiest crosswords are born from sadness and tragedy. There's so much more going on behind a smiling face than what meets the eye."
Next week we're off, but Lil AVC X returns May 9th with midis from May Huang and Kunal Nabar!
