Monday's New York Times crossword puzzle solved: February 11, 2019

My time: 3:57.


This hasn't becomes the Monday to Thursday puzzle solving blog forever.  This is a temporary slowdown due to events.  I will be posting weekend puzzle times as soon as I have the time.

Anyway, Howard Barkin treats us to this delicious Monday puzzle.  What do VANILLA SKY, CHOCOLATE THUNDER (Darryl Dawkins' cool nickname, apparently), and STRAWBERRY BLONDE have in common?  NEAPOLITAN ice cream!  Happy summer.

ETTA James was clued as having sung "At Last" back on October 11, 2018.

Opera singer RENEE Fleming was a clue on July 4, 2018.

So isn't there anything new to learn in this puzzle?  No.  NOT AT ALL.  I knew everything.  TA-DA!  That's Monday for you.
