Bottle Cap Alley
Located at 303 University Drive, College Station, TX, Bottle Cap Alley has become an important fixture of Texas A&M University. The strange ritual’s origins are not known, but they likely go back at least four decades. It may have started with the adjacent restaurant, The Dixie Chicken, dumping its bottle caps in the alley every night, along with other local bars and restaurants. What better recycling bin is there than an entire street dedicated to bottle caps themselves? Of course, you can’t visit Northgate without stopping in at the Dixie Chicken. Conveniently, it is one of the buildings bordering Bottle Cap Alley!
