  mussels and a large variety of local beers!

Other Attractions
  Brussels offers a huge number of attractions beyond X and
  Linux! The City of Brussels has a rich history, and thus has countless 
  museums.  An absolute must is the belgian center of the comic strip. 
  The Atomium  will be all shiny and new too as it'll be freshly replated 
  by then.
  We have already talked about mussels and beer, but there are also 
  Belgium chocolates and pastries to enjoy!
