Yes, you're correct so far. And yes, I did mean WTC, though I guess it wasn't completely correct.

Someone needs to figure out the last 3 clues.

Ok, I had to do a search at an internet spot again....

It's (Pavilion) Eighteen Turns in Cork, European Capital of Culture for 2005.

That's correct.
Your turn.
What movie did you see last night, & how was it?

I don't have that much time, so this will be a quick one. It shouldn't be too difficult if you know your architects. But strictly speaking, it's not a very good clue because the architect is probably best known for his works in the US.

Clue: This architect (2: 4, 8) was born in this country (7) but spent much of his life in the US. One of his most famous works is the (2: 3, 8) located in New York City. (Hint: There's been an ongoing debate what one should do with this building. Should one demolish it? At the moment, it's not used (I think), but it was recently used for some sort of party.)

To make this really easy, the first two letters of the architect's first name are "e."

Just continue without me.

I saw a revival of "On the Waterfront" at Film Forum. So I get to cross it off my list now. It's fine, I guess, as far as movies go.

Oh, just in case, 2: 4, 8 means that there're 2 words, with 4 and 8 letters respectively.

Eero Saarinen of Finland
TWA Terminal? (at the JFK)

Interestingly, I was reading an outdated Smithsonian magazine (from July 04 I believe) at a doctor's office. There was an article about plastic chairs, and mentioned Saarinen as one of the earlier designers of the plastic chair. At that time I made a mental note of using it as a future clue.

An amusing one:

This weekly American magazine (6,11) recently celebrated its 50th year of publication. That particular issue came with a 4-page fold-out poster, which is a spoof on an European fresco. The fresco is located in the (7,6) by (12)

Magazine: 6,11
Location of fresco: 7,6 ("n" = 6th of first word)
Artist: 12 ("n" = 8th)

"n" from Saarinen

A cryptic luncheon to help you solve the next puzzle:

The MAN WHO WORKED AT THE MANOR HOUSE (not on the farm, where he'd get his nails dirty) set the table with the best linenes and glassware (his favorite GREEN ONES). He put some fresh CREAM in the refrigerator for dessert. Then he went out to the BEET GARDEN to pick the makings of some salad and soup.

Question: Which four composers' music was to be played at this luncheon?

6 letters; 3rd is the O from Sports.
5 letters; 3rd is the R from Illustrated.
7 letters; 3rd is E from Sistine.
9 letters; 6th is the O from Michelangelo.

I'll solve the easiest one.
#2 is Verdi (being green)

The rest requires some serious thinking...

#4 is Beethoven (Beet Garden)

I'll admit that I'm solving this puzzle backwards (by thinking of the composer and then see if the name fits the clue).

For composer #1, 2 names come to mind but I cannot figure out if either one is correct:
Chopin
or
Dvorak

All right, you guys. Turn off the computers and go outside. You're all pasty white and need some Vitamin D from the sun. There's a real world out there, you know...

Good so far.... I think you probably know, or can definitely find, the "cream" one. The manor house worker one is "iffy," but I did find it online, so you can probably confirm one of your hunches.

Thanks for the laugh, cmt. I guess this isn't the sort of thing I'd know. But Dvorak is the one who owned the manor house (Vysoka) (Didn't you use this in a clue, yk?), and Smetana means "cream" in Czech (didn't know this).

But yk can give us a clue when she gets in.

Together, you both got the entire puzzle. Either or both of you can make up the next.

I'll let yk come up with the next one. I don't think that I'd have gotten this that easily. I'm much better with the factual, straight-forward puzzles.

That's a good one.
I did think of Smetana, but it was too late for me to search last night.
And yes, I did use Dvorak as a clue before!

Next clue:
Did you know that you can now purchase from this brand (9letters) anything from clothes to shoes to bed linens that are made by inmates?

You can purchase them online, or wait for their first retail store to open in this city (6).

Quote from their website:
< All of the items are highly functional, have a classical, timeless cut and are a bit more rugged than other brands that have been produced "outside". Both the jacket and trouser collections, as well as the household articles, are produced from high quality materials and fabrics. Their simple and honest shapes - that define themselves according to their utility and durability and not with short-lived fashion trends - are highly convincing. >

Name:
Brand: 9 ("n" = 8)
City: 6 ("n" = 6)

"n" from Smetana

(The letters in position #6,7,8 in answer #1 are the same as the letters in position #4,5,6 in answer #2. ie, #6=#4, #7=#5, #8=#6)

Looks like this thread is having a problem. It's supposed to have been updated at 10:43, after yk's clue.

Did someone try to answer?

I was going to try it, but I think that I'll wait.
