It’s more than the maximum popular item, or our favorite objects at local bars and restaurants; we’ve prepared a listing of 32 questions that quintessentially encompass the uniqueness of C-U’s services at this second. For the maximum element, those 32 matters are “the component” to order from their respective establishments, or “the thing” that greater or fewer defines that established order. They are every legendary in their own proper. They are C-U’s staples of foods and drinks.
Remember: This isn’t always an exhaustive listing of every super item at the menu at your favorite eating place or the “fine” liquids at your preferred bar. It’s quirky and fun, intended to amuse and frustrate.
