NYT Thursday Puzzle – February 27, 2014

NYT Thusday Puzzle - February 27, 2014

Theme: Quotation

15-, 24-, 48-, and 58-Across: Sign at a neighborhood bar, parts 1, 2, 3, and 4. Answer: Don’t talk about/yourself. We/will do that/after you leave.

I find puzzles with non-famous quotations difficult to solve, so I was surprised that I was able to figure this one out. I got parts 3 and 4 first and more easily than 1 and 2.

A few interesting fills:
3D. “Hit ’em where they _____.” Answer: Ain’t   This one stumped me at first as I’d not heard of this ending to this expression but rather two others: “hurt” and “live.”
10D. Columbus stopping point of 1493. Answer: Azores
11D. Active when the sun shines. Answer: Diurnal
62A. “Anything Goes” composer. Answer: Porter (Cole)
