Puzzle #53 – Get the Party Started

Old business: after solving last week’s puzzle, Andy Kravis was moved to write this sequel. It’s definitely recommended solving.

Happy birthday to this site! It’s now one year old, so we start year two right now. Tomorrow’s the official birthday, but we’re celebrating today by throwing a party (or four) in the puzzle. As always, if you enjoyed the puzzle, be sure to share it with a friend. Take it away, Paula Abdul!

    Loved the puzzle — congrats on the anniversary and thanks for the fun puzzles. I especially enjoyed 44A and the 54D/59D combo clues. :)

    Neville, DEADDOVE does not fit in 40A and that is a problem.

    Great job as always Neville. Liked 17a – Linux user’s command processor. Also noticed you aced the MGWCC in 10 minutes… I guess your Puzzlefest was good training :-)

    Had a minor hiccup by misreading 61A as “Israeli dessert”.

    Happy one year! Hoping for many more!

    Solving this a year late owing to your THROWBACK. Decided to comment on it here to keep all the comments together in one place.

    Lots of obscure answers in this one, made more palatable by the crossings.

    Favorite clues: 20A, 11D, 30D, 43D (I’m a furry, what can I say?), 51D.
