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 )

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?

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...

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.

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. )

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.

We attend every home game. Love the Gamecocks.

And, I have to point out that the colors are GARNET and black.

Maurice's Piggie Park, in West Columbia, isn't too far and consistently good.

Garnet is a much better color than cardinal.

Really? You're gonna post that on this thread after the SC-Georgia game last year???

Jpapa, Garnet is MUCH better than cardinal.


A2LA, you have to try Hudson's. I think their sliced pork puts Maurice's to shame. And they have 3 or 4 choices for your sauce flavor.

This is me with former SC and Washington Redskins running back/Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers. He visited the nursing home where I work for our Valentines Day social.

I know...must be a glutton for punishment. I'm a Texas Tech grad myself (sticking with the red and black), but still haven't gotten over the UGA brainwashing I received as a child.

A2LA,
He was absolutely charming and went out of his way to make our residents feel special. He stayed over twice as long as he had committed to, took pictures with everyone who wanted, signed mini footballs and pictures. One of our residents (who has since passed away) was a HUGE Clemson fan and was decked out in orange head to toe. She had the best time joking with him and pretended she was going to steal his Super Bowl rings.

If you go to Shealys (it's in Batesburg-Leesville -- about 30 min ish from downtown Columbia), make sure to ask your ice tea girl to get you a pulley bone from the kitchen.

Omg. Fried chicken heaven. The pulley bone is all the breast meat around the wish bone. Yum.

Maurice's is good but if you can make the drive to Shealey's, that is a more authentic BBQ experience, IMHO. Their BBQ is wonderful and there are lots and lots of side dishes, veggies, etc.

My ex-husband was a Gamecock fanatic and I spent 9 years going to every home game and lots of away games.

If you decide to tailgate, Rush's has good fried chicken.
