Especially if the salsa is *hot*.

They are simply corn chips, and many mexican 
restaurants make their own.  When I was a member 
at Sam's Club, they had cases of them - something 
like 30" long, 12" high, and 16" wide - for about $6. 
They also had salsa in half-gallons for about $5. 
You could serve a *lot* of people for $10.

Or you can use cheese sauce with hot peppers in it. 
A little more expensive, but you get what you pay 
for. Good snacks don't just sell drinks, they also fill 
the seats.  

By the way, *pretzels* are salty and fat-free and 
cheap. And if you use pretzel *rods*, you've pretty 
well handled Kevin Stevens' problem as well.

And I know we all suggested names for the place 
before, but I never heard what the winner was. It'd 
be a shame if you ended up with one of the "dew 
drop inn" variety.
