I realize it is 149 days away but my bucket list is taking me to the Florida game.

What do I need to do while I am in town? Is anyone going to be around? Please tell me there is better BBQ than we found in Auburn. Can I walk to Cracker Barrel from Williams-Brice?

(Gawd, I love College Football )

Doh! I forgot those pictures until now.

Can I beg you to be a virtual tour guide?

HFSSC posted 6/19/2013 14:49 PM

Well, um, I actually LIVE here, as opposed to PPGA who is out of town.

And I am a 3rd generation Gamecock.

You can't walk to Cracker Barrel, unfortunately. I'll find out where the best BBQ is near the stadium. JM works within a block of the stadium, so I know he knows all the places around there. How long will you be here? The whole weekend?

painpaingoaway posted 6/19/2013 14:59 PM

Yes, let HFSSC help you out with all that stuff!

All I know is my kiddos swear by Shealy's BBQ, but I don't know where Shealy's is in relation to the stadium.

We fly in Thursday night, will be spending all day Friday "trippin'" the town and the campus, all day Saturday for the game and all associated festivities and fly out at "Oh my gawd it's early" Sunday.

Anything and everything is on the agenda for those 48 hours.

As a challenge, Auburn didn't have good BBQ but Toomer's Drugs has the BEST lemonade I have ever tasted. Surely Columbia can impress a couple of NorCal guys with something.

Why are you going to SC for a Florida game?

Why not come to Gainsville for a Florida game?

Not that I know anything about Gainsville...

HFSSC posted 6/19/2013 15:31 PM

Okay, well, I love me some Shealy's, but it's a drive from Columbia. If you have a rental car and you love BBQ and country-style buffet, JM and I could meet you there on Friday.

If you'd rather stay close to town, I can get together some recommendations for you. I know that Sandy's has awesome hot dogs, ice cream and the best milk shakes I've had anywhere. PM me where you're staying and I'll see what I can find for you.

Jpapageorge posted 6/19/2013 15:41 PM

Jrc, Gainsville is definitely on the list and I will be hitting you up for info and reccomendations when we visit The Swamp.

HFSSC, we will have a rental car and we are staying with my Godson who is stationed in SC. (He owes me that much at least since he screamed when I held him at his baptism 21 years ago. )

Isn't that shade of red going to hurt your pretty eyes, JP?

Jpapageorge posted 6/19/2013 17:10 PM

Jrazz, . I prefer to see their team colors as black and red.

gahurts posted 6/19/2013 17:54 PM

If y'll are geting together, PM me. If I am free I'd love to drive up and join ya.

When is the Florida-SC game?

Jpapageorge posted 6/19/2013 18:38 PM

GA, Nov 16th.

painpaingoaway posted 6/19/2013 18:57 PM

Jpapa, my son in law said to go to Doc's for BBQ. He said it was close to the stadium.

Doc's Barbeque and Southern Buffet
1601 Shop Rd
Columbia, SC 29201
(803) 799-1532

Ok we already have tickets for the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular in ATL at 2 on the 16th but both Thursday and Friday nights are open.

HFSSC posted 6/20/2013 19:12 PM

I'm thinking we are going to meet for BBQ somewhere on Friday night. Hudson's Smokehouse gets my vote but I am open to other suggestions.
