im trying to make a small program where the user enters their selection choice and it prints out the corresponding information. for example, if they choose "3", i want "3. Soup de Jour" to print out, but im not sure what to do! any tips or help are greatly appreciated

Indexing typos aside, you seem to know how to print out the names of your appetizer menu by index (line 50-54). Isn't that what you want to do after they make a selection?

When the user enters 3, what do you do with it?

Ashley. I've broken up some of your lines because they were far too long and also corrected your indenting. Please read the link because long lines make your thread very hard to read.

Getting the indenting right can also help you to spot logic errors.
