(Seen in tourist areas on hot days. The Custom is that these servers (male or female) will be
based at a cafe or cart, and at a signal or call, will walk over and deliver a serving to the
customer from the chilled dispenser. The appeal to a tourist may also be the personal attention
 from an attractive server.
Sometimes there will be an assistant to help watch the cart,
 supply clean cups, & add ice to the dispenser.
Licensed by the Committee for Health;
and also may be supervised by other neighborhood committees,
in those tourist areas
where the serving style is expected to be more flirty.
