Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

We've got a hot 11x11 from Pravan Chakravarthy coming at you today called "U+1F595." The title says it all, but this moderately challenging offering should be even more fun to unpack yourself.

Pravan says: "Hey all! This concept was something us cruciverbalists at the Chicago Maroon were half-jokingly spitballing for a full-size grid -- I'm glad it finally came to fruition in midi form. Enjoy!"

Headed to your inbox tomorrow: a themed offering from Darby Ratliff.

Thanks for your solving!
