It's New Orleans week in my house, at least in retrospect. I took an attempt at making jambalaya and while it satisfied my craving, it wasn't quite the flavor I'm used to eating when visiting Louisiana. Then to continue my New Orleans week, I threw a reference to the city in this puzzle as well as having some Bourbon Street jazz as my featured song.
Regarding the crossword, it's a fairly easy theme, but I clued all the words on the more difficult side of things. I'm ecstatic with how I filled this grid, since I think it's one of my best yet. There aren't as many geeky words as the last two weeks, but you'll still find plenty of pop culture references in the clues.
How does this embed puzzle look? I much prefer having the crossword fullscreen in its own window, but others have implored me to try embedding the puzzle again. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter (click the icon at the top of the page) and let me know what you think.
