L Magazine

Befuddling strangers and their chewed No. 2s as a newsstand cruciverbalist? Indeed. Though similar in difficulty to Wednesday/Thursday New York Times fare, these formerly weekly L Magazine crossword puzzles are peppered with mucho pop culture, music references and local Big Apple lore plus general irreverence as befit the pub’s hipster audience. | WEEKLY DISTRIBUTION = 105,000; No special software used.
