(1/1)

magus:
THEME:   B removed from phrases yielding humorous ones: "BEGONE!" is a clever title
   
GOOD ONES:   
Highland scoundrel?   SCOTTISHROGUE [Brogue]   
Loud parties in Georgia?   ATLANTARAVES [Braves]   
OR hangers   IVS [liked the parallelism]   
   
BTW:   
Elite school   IVY [I remember not liking this ellipsis in a puzzle two years ago --- still don't, but soon it will de rigueur]   

___ golf   MINI [another elision: does anyone not use "minature golf"?]   

FLATFEE could also be clued as "Soho rent."  ;)   

Guess 87- & 88-Down are tests of our worldliness, but it's not English, and I see it as a test of the constructor's ability to avoid words not used in our language.   

I know what Apples are, I think, but not CR --- probably a techy term found in some arcane list of abbreviations.   

Speaking of abbreviations, I don't know what SLC is or what the Great Basin is for that matter.  :-[   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
