Watching this video of Riff Raff performing at a Fall party for the brothers of Florida State University’s Pi Kappa Phi fraternity I can’t help but feel a twinge of nostalgia for my days at FSU in Tallahassee. It’s obvious that Tally’s changed a lot since I was there back in the mid to early oughts, and while it pains me to admit this but it looks like FSU‘s even more fun these days than when I was there, which I didn’t think was humanly possible. Seriously, Tallahassee is one of the greatest party towns in the nation and if you don’t believe that then click play on this video and prepare to see the light:
The Pi Kapp bros at Florida State University will always be near and dear to my heart. Back when I was doing my time in Tallahassee (in the classroom, not in the clink), two of my roommates were brothers of Pi Kappa Phi and we were living in this enormous six bedroom house over in the ‘student ghetto’ across the street from Doak Campbell Stadium (on Airport and Atkamire for you people that know Tally). Our house was split into two floors, and during rush the Pi Kapp bros would use the bottom floor of the house for their super secret ‘pledge kidnapping’ which I won’t go into detail on, but that meant that the bottom floor of the house was off limits even though I lived there.
To make up for the inconvenience the Pi Kapp bros would throw down for a keg for us to drink upstairs, that way they could go about their super secret pledge rituals in secret and we could get hammered upstairs and not feel inconvenienced.
Given that 2 of my 5 roommates were Pi Kapps we’d have had no problem at all just letting them use the downstairs for the pledge kidnapping, but it was cool of them to throw in the free keg just because they could, and for that the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi will always be chill AF in my book. I just with they’d have thrown parties with performers like Riff Raff back in the day.
