It can be an adjective and an adverb referring to high grade or quality, very large or very powerful. Super, to an excessive degree, can encapsulate many activities, all of which can be done in a day.

Food

Recharge and revitalize your morning with an açaí bowl at The Corner Blend. Known as a superfood for their high antioxidant content, açaí berries are a source of healthy fat and fiber. Each bowl begins with a thick smoothie base of açaí, kale, pitaya (dragon fruit), or blue spirulina (nutrient rich algae) and is topped with any number of granola, fresh fruit, peanut butter, and dried seed combinations. Health conscious customers can eat in, or place an order for delivery or pick up.

Drink

Sometimes it can be hard to accommodate an entire group, but at River Rat Brewery’s green space and rooftop bar there is plenty of room to spread out, and a super friendly staff on tap to serve family, children, friends, and even dogs. In addition to their indoor and outdoor spaces, River Rat offers a variety of beers all made from the finest ingredients and mixed drinks on tap to appeal to a wide-ranging clientele. Tuesday through Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. all draft beers are $1 off, and active or retired military service men receive fifteen percent off every purchase, every day.
