Zeta Tau Alpha’s Dad’s Weekend at FSU

The Zetas at FSU enjoyed celebrating Dad’s Weekend this past Friday and Saturday with their fabulous fathers. The weekend began with Happy Hour at Tallahassee’s favorite spot, Potbelly’s where all of the dads instantly bonded over their desire to be back in college. By 8pm, they were behind the bar, holding Zeta’s infamous crown symbol over the bartender’s head and cheesing for the cameras.

After HH, we walked downtown to 101, a well-known restaurant among FSU students that serves everything from fish sandwiches to steak salads to mac n’cheese. My dad and I each savored a thin-crust pizza and Caesar salad. Stuffed to the brim and exhausted from re-living college years, we retired to our apartments and turned in for the night.

The next morning, my dad and I woke up bright and early to begin the set-up for my third trunk show at the Zeta Tau Alpha house. My dad became my personal assistant for the day and was a great sport. After all the hard work, we enjoyed some BBQ. That evening, all the dads and daughters went to the FSU vs. Virginia Tech baseball game where we ate boiled peanuts and hotdogs, the obvious staple foods you have to have at a baseball game. After the game, a group of us went to AJ’s sports bar to watch the final four basketball games and enjoy our last night with our dads.

We all had an awesome weekend and loved showing our dads the ropes. College is certainly different for us than it was for them, but they outpartied us girls for sure! No matter how old we get, one thing is for sure: we will always be daddy’s little girls.
