Thumbs up University of Texas daughter's '11 recruitment

Yes, we're still 3 1/2 weeks away from the first day of Rush (Aug. 17), but I decided to go ahead and put up the code I'll be using. When the time comes, I'll go almost-live -- aka, 1-2 days late rather than same-day posting -- so that I can protect her identity.

At UT, the first evening is convocation/orientation, then a full day to visit all 13 groups (one of the 14 doesn't participate in formal recruitment, in part because they don't have a house). The next two days are philanthropy (up to 10 houses), then skit day (up to 6), then pref (up to 2). Bid Day is Aug. 23, the day before school starts.

I chose a code based on one of the best parts of being a Texan -- the food! There are 14 NPC sororities at UT, and here's how I will be referring to them:

Fajitas
Iced tea
BBQ brisket
Chicken-fried steak
Blue Bell ice cream
Fried okra
Shiner beer
Breakfast taco
Pecos cantaloupe
Fried catfish
Texas sheet cake
Fletcher's corn dog at the State Fair
Chili
Dr. Pepper

I guess it doesn't make sense to include the one that doesn't participate in FR, but I couldn't pick which awesome food to cut from the code You can see where my priorities are...
The GLOs there, in no order related to the cose, are:
SDT
KKG
APhi
DDD
DG
AXD
KAT
AEPhi
AXO
KD
ZTA
XO
PBPhi
ADPi

So, I'll be back in a few weeks. In the meantime, good luck to everyone preparing for recruitment

What is it with Texas and Dr Pepper? When I was in Houston a few years ago visiting a friend, it was the only thing anyone drank!


I'm pulling for Fried Okra, Chili and Texas Sheet Cake!!!

Dr. Pepper was invented in Texas and the company used to pay my grandfather, a little boy, to sweep up there so we're partial! However, I've lived in a Coca-Cola state for years and horror of horrors, there are many places where you can't even get DP here.

And I am from Blue Bell country....

I remember when Blue Bell was ONLY sold in texas. It was a happy day at my house when BB began regional sales and we could buy it in Tulsa. By the time we moved back to Florida they were nationwide.

I very rarely comment in recruitment story threads, and absolutely never comment (or cheer) based on the lunacity of code names. However, I will say that you have made this displaced Native Texan very nostalgic, as well as very hungry!

My fave items on your list are Blue Bell and Fletchers. Fortunately I can still get Blue Bell where I am now, but no more fresh-out-of-the fryer state fair corn dogs.

I will say that I, too, think no list is complete without the Frito Pie. What would Friday night football be without that "fine delicacy?"

It really has to be Dublin Dr. Pepper which is the oldest DP plant in the world and still uses the 100% pure cane sugar recipe. It's a delicious legend.

LIES. I had some for the first time when I was in Galveston last Thanksgiving and loved it so much, but I can't find it for the life of me here in Chicago.

Go to www.bluebell.com ; I know that at least they used to have a list of stores where it's available.

Wary, I'm sorry! We seem to have hijacked your thread with food discussions!

Lady Longhorn....

I am sure you probably already know this...but Franklin Bar-b-que in Austin (11th Street @ 35...they use to be in a trailer) serves only Dublin Dr. Pepper (on tap and in the bottle...you know it's all about the bottle). Only Cane Sugar Sodas are served there. If you haven't been to Franklin....well...you simply must go. Crazy long lines but.....Best Brisket....EVER.

EIG

Good Luck to your Daughter!
