# A New Year's Drink?

by Dave Appleby and Scott Wilton

The first thing to figure out is that the weather forecast does, in fact, not have anything to do with the weather. Instead, if you plot the points on a piece of paper (using the lows as X-coordinates and the highs as Y-coordinates), you get...

...a square root sign! That's not a coincidence. So, how can this square root sign be applied to the sequence of numbers? Well, as it is now, it can't. This is a good time to reread Skinny's note, specifically the last sentence. "I'm always one step ahead of you!"

First, you concatenate the sequence of numbers into this:

401 65 26 170 82 197 226 401 2 442 325 362 2 325 170 362

Then, you subtract one from each number:

400 64 25 169 81 196 225 400 1 441 324 361 1 324 169 361

Then, you take the square root of each number:

20 8 5 13 9 14 15 20 1 21 18 19 1 18 13 19

Finally, you convert each number to a letter by the obvious method: *The Minotaur's Arms* is the name of the bar.
