I think 17-across was the only "seed" entry in the grid. I've had one myself and I guess it was ok. I prefer the "fat" version, although I would really prefer a piña colada or a mudslide if we are talking beach drinks. I then wanted to work 12-down and 44-across into the grid. I know proper names can be sore spots for people, but I think the people are crossword-worthy and I think the crossings are fair. I'm watching the last season of Younger which stars 64-across, who is great in the role. Looking over the grid, I don't see too much fill I'm unhappy with. Maybe 41-across.
