As I type, we are en route to Maine for the weekend. Apparently, so is everyone else in New England. :( On the upside, the drive has given me the opportunity to finish the puzzle and write the review so that when we arrive I can get right down to the serious business of drinking. And, speaking of drinking, it seemed to me that there was a mini drinking theme among today's clues and answers, including 23A. Small drinks (NIPS), 46A. Seltzer, e.g. (MIXER), e.g.), and 23D. Chase with a drink (WASHDOWN). I noticed what I thought were a couple of other mini themes, as well, that is assuming three or more related answers make a mini theme.
Non-English words: HASTA, UNODOS, TRES, DOLCE, CARTE
Cars: DASHCAM (1A. B+ fine word, I just don't take a dash cam), ELANTRA, and, appropriately (sadly), SNARLS
Computers: ENTERKEY, ERROR, ADWARE
I really enjoyed a number of clue/answer pairs in this puzzle.
29A. Unit of brilliance? (CARAT)
45A. Long-distance call? (YODEL)
11D. Mass number (AVEMARIA) - Ha!
28D. Markers (CHITS) - I love this word.
But my vote for most clever clue goes to 41A. Really long (ACHE). Beautiful.
My list of dislikes is short:
Apple apparatus (CORER) - I found it kind of unapeeling. :)
