          You know what my favorite restaurant in San Francisco is? The answer is that there are so many great restaurants that I couldn't choose one. But honorable mentions include Mr. Chow's, Live Sushi and Piccino.

Nicolás,

You can find the answer at:

https://teamtreehouse.com/community/ifelse-in-sass. I posted the code from that answer.

$time: morning;
a {
  @if $time == morning {
    color: red;
  } @else if $time == afternoon {
    color: blue;
  } @else {
    color: grey;
  }
}
