Post by: magus on May 30, 2015, 09:32:52 AM
THEME:   none
Some Buffalo wings   SABRES [Buffalo SABRES, not chicken (which they aren't); note Capital B]   
Subway device   OVEN [Subway restaurants]   
Start to cure?   PEDI [could be SCAB but for the question mark]   
Home to Paris   TROY [the epic character, not the city]   
Tall story?   LOFT   
Hood defense   ARROW [Robin Hood, not Bruno Tataglia as per MARIO PUZZO at 53A]   
Crossing party, briefly   PED [Ped Xing]   
Assigning responsibility by committee   BLAME STORMING [new one on me; it's excellent]   
Like the Southeast…   RAINIEST [I live in NC and I know Washington is far wetter]   
They aren't behind you   FOES [I'd say that's true half the times --- they tend to talk behind your back]   
Odometer stat.   MPG [they just give the miles traveled; to get MPG a calculator of some sort is needed in addition]   

That bodega is feminine is of no importance in English.   

This was tough and I enjoyed the challenge.   

RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
