WSJ Crossword Puzzle Dining on the Campaign Trail 11-2-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 43A Clue heading: ACROSS because it’s like yesterday all over again. See, yesterday’s WSJXW had the clue 27D Unlike this clue’s answer: ACROSS. That seems cheap and lame. I don’t know if there is a streak of these ACROSS answers because this just my second day in a row, but, man, I hope not.

The title of this puzzle is Dining on the Campaign Trail.

18A What a candidate might do a House of Thai?: CURRYFAVOR. This reminds too much of the first episode of Master of None. I know that The Wall Street Journal is no stranger to things that make us ask if they have ever wanted to 29A Experience personal growth: EVOLVE.

24A What a candidate might do at Peking Palace?: DUCKASCANDAL. :/
40A What a candidate might do at IHOP? WAFFLEONANISSUE. Because the International House of Pancakes is famous for its waffles that you can totally get.

49A What a candidate might do at Veggie Galaxy?: SQUASHARUMOR.
60A What a candidate might do at McDonald’s?: SHAKEHANDS.

In related news, they’ve called the New York mayoral race for Adams. Congrats, that guy? I haven’t been paying attention, so I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

Finished this one in 9:12.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
