    4. How is this relevant?
    1. You should get clam chowder from Smart Alec’s! You’re looking for something hearty and delicious and this yummy soup, or should we say chowder, will fulfill your wildest soupy dreams.
    2. You should eat butternut squash soup from the San Francisco Soup Company! This delicious soup has rich interesting flavors and is bound to make your taste buds (metaphorically) smile. And remember, eat lots of soup, drink lots of water and get lots of sleep to fight off the cold!
    3. You should get pho from the Vietnam Village in the Asian Ghetto! If you’re looking for a delicious and flavorful meal, pho is always a good idea. We have a ton of awesome pho places near the UC Berkeley campus, but this one is super convenient and inexpensive (if you’re living on campus or have classes on Southside).
    4. You should definitely order chicken noodle soup from the San Francisco Soup Company! Based on your answers, it seems like you’re pretty sick. We at the Clog hope you feel a lot better and remember to take care of yourself!
