Wednesday, September 14, 2016 – The Alley
Winner winner, chicken dinner! It is Chicken Alley, also known as Bottle Cap Alley. It is the alley by The Dixie Chicken in Northgate, College Station.
Most academians, like myself, (see also Academia Nut) who attended the Harvard on the Brazos refer to it as the intellectual salon of College Station. It is similar to the salons of the West Bank in Paris of the 1920’s.
Like the intellectual salons of Paris, the intelligentsia often gathers to discuss social and relevant events and pose questions and observations for great thought. For example:
How many pitchers of beer do we need tonight?” Do we want to sit at a domino table? Do you want to split a burger? Who wants to share Uber with me later? I can’t see the TV from here. Are the rattle snakes still here? I have never seen so many Wranglers blue jeans and cowboy boots in one place before.”
