Is this the real round for today, or is it an April Fool and Gatsby has the real one hidden up his sleeve somewhere?

Well, April Fools Day to me! This round had a lot of twists and turns that were unexpected. 11 players this time.

But here is all that involves Round 1:

People Or Things With The Initial A.F. (As In April Fools)

For 10 points:
Alleyne Francique (runner), Abercrombie & Fitch, Atlanta Falcons, 'Animal Farm', Albert Finney, Andy Flower (cricketer), Arthur Fiedler (conductor), Allen Funt (he with that Candid Camera), Anne Frank, A.F. - which was tempting to disallow but it really is an accepted abbreviation for Afghanis/Afghanistan, Anti-Freeze.

10 points for everyone!

Words Of At Least 4 Letters That Can Be Made From A-P-R-I-L

For 10 points:
lair, April, pial (something about arteries, I find), rial (Italian currency), Prial (used mostly as a last name), pail, lira (yet more currency), 'pali' (Buddhist texts).

For 5 points:
pair(3).

Continental US Cities That Have A 'Hard Rock Cafe'

Yikes! The initial list I found was short but you all made it longer. Seems like these places are next to everywhere! I checked all answers and all are correct.

For 10 points:
Minneapolis, New Orleans, San Antonio, Nashville, Miami, Destin (Florida), Baltimore.

For 5 points:
La Jolla (California)(2), Sacramento(2)

A 2005 Inductee Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

For 10 points:
The Pretenders

For 5 points:
The O'Jays(2), Buddy Guy(3), U2(3), Percy Sledge(2)

The other two weren't performers that weren't mentioned. Frank Barcelona and Seymour Stein - both founders/producers of record companies.

A Short Story In Raymond Carver's Collection "Cathedral" Without 'The' In The Title

Some ran into a few problems on this one. It helps when I had the book just a foot away from my head, I guess. But we all got the right ones in the end.

For 10 points:
Where I'm Calling From, Vitamins, Preservation, Feathers, Careful.

For 5 points:
A Small Good Thing(2), Fever(4).

Only ones not said were Chef's House and Cathedral.

A close round this time! Good going everyone! But here's the winners' list:

ceci1980, ElfTwinkle, Julia103 - each 45 points!
Mugaboo, Santana2002, ozzz2002, bracklaman - each 40 points
SRSTrekker, littlewoman2, Shrivats (and welcome to our new player!), cinnamOn - each 35 points

Off to a good month, I'd say! Thanks for joining in, everyone!

Ren, simply PM your answers to the player.. Each round takes a couple of days to allow everyone time to answer.

You have to try and provide a unique answer to score maximum points, and that is not as easy as it sounds:)

Welcome aboard! We have a lot of fun in here...
