Inside Crosswords: March 12 at Pareidolia Brewing Co.

Calling all cerebral puzzle fans! Ever wonder who writes those crossword puzzles? Do you love crosswords and other mentally challenging puzzles? Then you won't want to miss this one-time event. Join Pareidolia Brewing for beverages and a presentation on the subject. Meet Crossword Master Patrick Merrell.

Patrick is the author of 400 New York Times crosswords and 1,000 People magazine puzzles, the former crossword columnist for The New York Times, and an official for the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Patrick will narrate an entertaining slideshow detailing the ins and outs of crosswords — how crosswords are made, how to solve them, and how they can benefit your brain. He will also share plenty of behind-the-scenes insights and crossword history, plus a look at some of the most unusual crosswords ever made. He'll also have his puzzle books for sale at the event.

Patrick last spoke at Pareidolia in 2019, sharing lore about President Grover Cleveland to a sitting-room-only crowd. The talk coincided with the publication of an article he wrote for Vero Beach Magazine chronicling the creation of “Grover’s Glass,” a lager brewed in the style Grover Cleveland would have enjoyed when he wintered nearby in the late 1800s.

6 - 7 pm, March 12

712 Cleveland Street, Sebastian, FL
