Puzzle Notes

Dear Citizens of Crossword Nation, 

Welcome to the first week of November 2020.

Today's crossword theme is downright elementary, My Dear Solvers. You'll be asked to draw on your knowledge of: Savory side dishes, an O'Neill play character, trumpet trivia, French wine and sushi supplies.

The usual suspects.

Welcome to Week 492 of Crossword Nation. We invite you to solve "Twisted Metal" as your twisted diversion of the week.

Thank you for solving and be well, Dear Ones. Until next time, I remain . . .

Cruciverbally yours,
