BEST NEW BUSINESS: FIVE GUYS BURGER AND FRIES
Five Guys Burgers and Fries is one of those rare
success stories, a franchise that has exploded from
its Northern Virginia ruuts to become a symbul
of the D.C. area. The beef patties are thoroughly
cooked, yet juicy. The buns are freshly baked. The
free toppings are endlessly customizable. And with
delertable French fries, hand-cut frum painstak-
ingly sourced potatoes, cooked in peanut oil and
served in generously heart attack-inducing portions,
Five Guys is difficult to top. Add in the free crates of
peanuts you can munch on while you wait and it's
practically impossible to resist. This year, Five Guys
has finally come to Ann Arbor and it has managed
to carve out a niche in a town that plays host to both
Blimpy and Quickie Burger. That, in and of itself, is
Iquite an accomplishment

BEST SANDWICH: ZINGERMAN'S DELI

UNIVERSITY FAN APPAREL: M-DEN

Freshmen, beware: Walking into M-Den. for
the first time is an overwhelming experience. One
doesn't go to M-Den just to peruse idly through maize
and blue regalia - no, you are absolutely immersed
from the second you walk through the doors. This
is no mere student store - it's a die-hard Michi-
gan fan's wildest dream. There are sweaters, vests,
sweater vests, watches, plaques, key chains, earrings,
scrunchies, flags, backpacks, dog collars, underwear,
socks, polos, bedspreads, napkins and bathing suits
- all emblazoned with one of the many logos of our

dear University. And let's not forget about the super-
awesome value room in the back on the second floor.
Don't feeling like breakin' out the big bucks? No fear,
the value room holds an impressive variety of para-
phernalia for a much lower price. M-Den is a haven
of all things Wolverine, where alums, students, pro-
spective students and the like can come and equip
themselves to properly hail to' the victors - albeit
for a price. But come on: What true fan doesn't want
maize-and-blue salt and pepper shakers?

What makes the perfect deli
sandwich? New Yorkers might
say a couple pieces of rye soaked
in Russian dressing and sepa-
rated by a healthy wad of either
pastrami or corned beef is all
you need - after all, they're the
"experts," right? But a Zinger-
man's regular might be less than
impressed. Where are the locally
grown organic meats and chees-
es, the inventive and colorful
sandwich menu, the free samples,
the perennially tie-dyed, intense-
ly knowledgeable staff? What
happened to the flood of grinning

students with Dad's credit card
in hand, the connoisseurs who've
come from far and wide for a taste '
of Midwestern TLC? Fuhgeta-
boutit - it's not in NYC but back
at Zingerman's, which year after
year earns its reputation as a fix-
ture on the Michigan (and nation-
al) foodie scene. And even though
it keeps the highly inflated prices
that deli regulars in the Village
have come to expect, rest assured
that a Zingerman's sandwich is '
worth every penny of its $14 price
tag, every time.
