So Les Miles' stealing recruits isn't anything new! Louisiana bar tries to take credit for Flaming Dr. Pepper invented in Aggieland. General Sherman needs to complete his capture of East Texas/Louisiana to end this crap.

Origin

As with many modern cocktails, the origin of this drink is disputed.
The earliest claim to origination of this drink is the Ptarmigan Club in College Station, Texas, in the 1960s.[citation needed]
It has also been claimed that it originated in the Gold Mine Saloon in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.

That's not the only thing wrong with that Wiki, if P-tar did invent the drink(never heard that before).

As a Bryan native, I'm pretty pissed off about friggin College Station tring to steal our drinks. CS was barely more than Northgate plus a bunch of shacks off Jersey Street in the 60s.

There was one in Cali but the chain as we know it sprang from the CS location, so....

Ptarmigan, however, is in Bryan, and that's what is most wrong with the Wiki.
It is possible for a mixed drink name after Dr Pepper to have been created in the state that worships the stuff. I hadn't heard that they claimed to have invented it, however. I guess it depends how you interpret "home of", which is what their sign says, iirc.

"Students at UC Santa Barbara quickly adopted FREEBIRDS as their own. Four years later, FREEBIRDS rolled into College Station, Texas where the Aggies at A&M got a taste of the soon-to-be legendary FREEBIRD & Monster burritos."

I believe there is a Simpsons episode dedicated to this very topic.

Plain and Simple,
The Santa Barbara location was first, but the CS location is the parent of the chain of Texas locations.

My aunt and uncle own the Gold Mine down in the Quarter and my cousin claims he invented the Flaming DP. I'd bet they serve over 100 of these a night.

Do I care who really invented it? Nope! I'll stick to my homebrew.
