I just remembered one of my favorites! Every year, after pref and after we turned in our bid lists, we would all head over to a particular IHOP in Boston (Kenmore Square), still wearing our pref dresses, heels, badges, pearls, hair and makeup done, etc., and tucked into some pancakes and other assorted carbs. We definitely turned heads! I only got to go twice. During my freshman year, (a) the sorority, which was still a local at the time, didn't do FR, and (b) even if they had, I would obviously have still been a PNM, not a member. During my senior year, I was a rho chi and therefore deaffiliated - rho chis didn't reaffiliate until a couple of days after bid day.

During my junior year, one of my sisters was planning her wedding for the following summer, and another of my sisters was going to be one of her bridesmaids. The bridesmaid spent a good chunk of the meal complaining about the color of the bridesmaids' dresses. They were fire-engine red. At one point, she picked up the bottle of ketchup that was on the table, pointed to it, and said "THIS COLOR!" We were in stitches! (I don't know why she was complaining. I was a guest at the wedding, and she looked good in that dress.)
