R5 Cross off the Date

Quick, what’s a nine letter word for “direction-pointing trees?”  The answer: Arrowwood. What’s with the riddle?  On Sunday, June 24th at 11 am, legendary puzzle-maker Will Shortz will visit Doral Arrowwood to lead a two-hour “live and interactive discussion to explain how he creates his famous New York Times crossword puzzles, and to highlight some of the special ‘insider’ tricks and tips you can use to solve even the hardest Sunday crossword.”


The seminar costs $149 (that could pay for a lot of Sunday crosswords), but includes brunch.  And just think how impressed your friends will be when your Sunday crossword isn’t just a bunch of amorphous-looking scribbles.
