Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight's puzzle is a bite-sized (but chewy!) one from Brooke Husic called "Danger and Dance" (which is a reference to the parody Europop song in the 4-Down clue).

Catch more of Brooke's puzzles approximately monthly in the New Yorker (including today!) and exactly monthly on her blog, the latter of which features both mega-hard and regular-hard clue options.

Brooke co-ran Lil AVC X with Chris and Enrique in 2022, runs it solo now, and is beyond excited to see what Rafa, Olivia, Will, and Sally do with it in 2024. Speaking of, experienced constructors should take a look at their call for editors, and newer constructors should watch out for forthcoming roster auditions!

Headed to your inbox next Sunday night: Kelly Nguyen Dickson celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Love you more than you know,

Your friends at Lil AVC X | @avcxword | @lilavcx | @avcxcryptic | @avcxplus | @avcxtrivia
