No CHE this week. The next one is on August 5, and then weekly puzzles resume on September 2.
Promo from Brian Cimmet: “Lollapuzzoola 9, the world’s greatest crossword tournament held on a Saturday in August, is happening this year on Saturday, August 13, at All Souls Church in New York City. It’s a full day of original crosswords (amazing), bonus puzzles and games (brilliant), and free snacks (mediocre), all for just $30. You can also solve from home for $12 (and provide your own snacks). Visit www.bemoresmarter.com for more info. If you have any questions, email tournament director Brian Cimmet at email@example.com.”
