For years, boozers from the Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, and elsewhere, have been paving a short alley located between the pub Dry Bean and the restaurant Dixie Chicken, with used bottle caps. The alley, about 50 meters long and 2 meters across, is today filled with hundreds of thousands of weathered metal bottle caps. It’s a curious little attraction.
The alley periodically receives “donation”, in the form of bottle caps, from the surrounding bars and individuals who collect them for the purpose.
The Bottlecap Alley is located at the north edge of the Texas A&M campus. The Alley entrance is on the north side of Hwy 60/University Drive, midway between College Main and Boyett St.
