Eating My Way Across the USA!

Hi friends!

It is such an exciting time of the year for Sigma Kappa leadership consultants! Not only have we begun to master the art of traveling, but we are also feeling so much dove love across the nation as we visit Sigma Kappa chapters during formal recruitment.

As an avid Food Network fan, I have found that one of the most exciting things, aside from connecting with new Sigma Kappa sisters, is trying local foods! The eateries around North Carolina State University and Purdue University have so many hidden gems.

3 Sisters Cafe is a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives find that I got to enjoy with the entire LC team! It is a must when in Indy. Amazing breakfast items all day. Have an omelette made with brie cheese!

This fried green tomato BLT from Village Deli in Raleigh, N.C. was delicious. The first fried green tomato I’ve ever had and definitely not the last!

The Pit in Raleigh is another Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives find. Extremely tasty barbecue, and one of the many tastes of the South. Try the Chopped BBQ with both of the barbecue sauces they provide!

Howling Cow Ice Cream is unique to North Carolina State University in Raleigh. This ice cream is produced by North Carolina State University and definitely one of a kind. I was lucky enough to try it during a Panhellenic ice cream social!

Triple XXX Family Restaurant is a popular diner at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind. Yet another Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives location. Triple XXX is known for their root beer and Duane Pervis cheeseburger that even has a layer of peanut butter!

Lastly, I can’t forget about the Den Pops, a Purdue favorite! Taking soda pop to a new level, the Discount Den encourages customers to create new concoctions of different sodas. They provide different “menu” ideas with “ingredient lists” of which sodas to mix!

As John Shertzer recently wrote in a post, “Road Warriors for Fraternity” on the blog Fraternal Thoughts regarding fraternity and sorority consultants:

I will forgo the chain restaurants in favor of the famous campus pizza parlor.  And places with names like “The Flying Gila Monster” in towns with names like “Bug Swallow.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself! I encourage you to read the rest of the brilliant blog here: http://fraternalthoughts.blogspot.com/2012/08/road-warriors-for-fraternity.html

A big shout out to the Gamma Phi and Beta Sigma chapters of Sigma Kappa! These amazing women have been working so hard to prepare for recruitment, and I cannot wait to hear of the successes!

Stay tuned for next time!

xoxo,

Francesca
