If you want to be with the players family members and scholarship donars, sec W & V is where you want to be.  If you're across the field from those sections with the other visitors seats you will probably get some *ss with a cow bell in your ear.  Its horrible and you will leave the game with a splitting headache.  StubHub has those seats in W & V available but get them down low.  The seats in that section on the higher rows are Miss. St. seats.  I've been to alot of games over there and it's like a big high school. Fun but different.  Tip of Day-- If you tailgate don't leave ice chest or chairs out.  Ours >:( got ripped off last time we were there.  They're a class bunch over there!

That stadium makes WMS look like JerryWorld. Seats are so far away from the action.

We're getting into town around 8:00 Friday night. Is there gonna be a formal or informal hogville tailgate?

Does anyone have any good suggestions for tailgating, restaurants, bars, etc?

Ok here is all you need to know

For bars on Friday Night or Saturday night you need to go to The Vista if you are above the age of 25 or 5 Points if you are a college student or recent grad.  These are 2 different bar districts in Columbia that appeal to 2 different crowds.  All the bars you need in both nightlife districts.

On gameday there are really only 2 bars near the stadium.  One is Jaco's Corner.  Jaco's is the oldest bar in Columbia(100 years old this year).  It's an old mill bar that was founded by moonshiners who were friends with Jack Daniels.    The bar is a real hole in the wall, but has a great atmosphere and you'll meet some fantastic people in it.

The other Gameday Bar is Loose Cockaboose.  This bar has lots of TVs, live music, but has too many fights and crazies in it for my taste.  Jaco's isn't as fancy, but it's better IMO.

Plenty of tailgating around the stadium.  You have the Fairgrounds across the stadium and lots of local business lots you can park in.  For those who have been to USC in the past they have completely redone the Farmer's Market area and made it into a very pretty & large tailgate spot.    On the Olympia side of town you can park in many people's yards for $10.  Keep in mind the stadium is about 3 miles off campus. 

You can also park at the Colonial Life Arena(USC's basketball facility) and take a shuttle to the stadium.

If you are in South Carolina then you need to eat some SC BBQ, since the mustard style is unique.  Shealy's BBQ in Batesburg, SC is the most popular place, but its about a 40 minute drive from Columbia.  In town you should try Doc's BBQ or Little Pigs.   Maurice's isn't bad either. 

If you have any other questions please feel free to email me.  Dixiefriedsports@gmail.com.   

Everyone have a safe trip to Columbia and I look forward to seeing some Hog fans.

I'll be there! It's my first hog game so I know nothing about tailgating!

Do we still do the hog call on kickoff at away games? It's been a lifelong dream to be a part of one.

It looks like I also have an extra ticket (row 32 in section 17). I've got two people going with me, but doesn't look like a 3rd will join. I'll be in Irmo, SC (just north of Columbia off 26) on Friday night, then parking at Colonial Life Arena around 9:30-10am on Saturday. PM me if interested in the ticket.

I attended the game in 2010 and really enjoyed my experience in Columbia. Looking forward to it again.

I JUST posted a thread offering restaurant suggestions.  As far as hotels go...I'm not too sure.  Hampton Inn hotels are probably the best quality for the money.  Their rooms go for around 100 a night.  But it really depends on how much money you want to spend.

When did you graduate?  My dad went to High School and graduated from there?  We still go back to visit my grandma who lives in Atkins every winter.  What are you doing near South Carolina?

Did you find my thread about food places? oh and I just noticed you wrote Columbus in the header.  Did you mean Columbia?  I was assuming you meant Columbia since that's where the game will be played.

My family and I are making the trip over. We're having a fantastic sports weekend. Getting to see my sisters play for Ohio st bball team in the carrier classic and then the football game. It's my little bro's first away game so he's pretty stoked. Just hope the team comes to play for 4 quarters, I know that's a lot to ask these days.

With it being so late everything downtown is probably booked.  Try the Irmo/Harbison area.   Anything on Harbison Blvd, Lake Murray Blvd, or Columbiana Avenue would be good. 

Stay away from the Two Notch Road area.

looking for I-40 travel advice
« Reply #10127 on: November 08, 2012, 09:11:20 am »

Am going to a HS playoff game tomorrow in West Memphis. Someone told me I-40 has construction east of Little Rock, slowing traffic. Is the jam bad enough to look for detours? I will traveling in mid-late afternoon Friday. I appreciate any help.

Take the Brinkley exit. Then turn south and go down and hit Hwy. 70 to west Memphis. Hwy. 70 runs parallel to I-40.

Incorrect.  If he's going toward West Memphis, you're detouring him AFTER the construction.  I live in Memphis and come to central Arkansas 2-3 times a month, so I drive it constantly.

On the way to West Memphis, if you detour, get off at Carlisle and get back on at either Biscoe (the first opportunity after you cross White River), or, if a cop is posted there and won't let you because they're working in that area, Brinkley.

On the way back home, off at Brinkley and back on at Hazen.  U.S. 70 does run parallel to I-40 so it's not that inconvenient except that it's 2-lane the whole way.

I've found that the back-ups on I-40 around White River tend to pop up later in the day for some reason.  In other words, if you're traveling early morning, chances are you won't have a delay so it may be worth staying on the interstate.

He better exit I-40 long before he gets to the Brinkley exit. The road construction starts slowing down traffic about 40-45 miles east of Little Rock and is mainly centered around the DeValls Bluff area. If he waits until Brinkley to get off I-40 he is already pretty much past the construction area. I would suggest taking the Lonoke or Carlisle exits to find highway 70 and follow that to Brinkley and then get back on I-40 at that point.

Btw, if you do take highway 70 to go through DeValls Bluff, going east you will find a GREAT little joint called Craigs BarBQ there in Devalls Bluff on your right hand side. That place has been there forever and makes great BarBQ.

Bingo.

Don't look at this as a detour, look at it as an excuse for some good BBQ and fried pie.

I agree with the Carlisle advice.  I live in that area and it is very unpredictable.  To be safe, get off at Carlisle and get back on in Brinkley.  Watch out for Ivory Billed Woodpeckers.

If your not too terribly in a hurry you can get on Hwy 70 there in LR off of 440, Scott exit I think, and drive 70 to Brinkley.

EXIT 193 (DeValls Bluff)for detour TO West Memphis is the exit you need to take for the detour. The road construction begins soon after this exit. You can check the traffic flow at this exit - if it is moving then STAY ON 40 East.

The detour is clearly marked - you take Hwy 70 and get back on 40E at Biscoe

I drive this every week. Friday afternoon is pretty heavy traffice.

What's the name of that BBQ place that won that international award? Can't remember it off the top of my head.

That would be Jones BBQ in Marianna.

Check this site on your smart phone before you get to exit 193 headed East

If there are red areas exit and take 70 to Biscoe or Brinkley depending on where backup ends. Yellow or green your choice but my experience has been they're not too bad and can depend on how long of a distance shows yellow.Typically very accurate

i came over from LR to work in Memphis this week.  i got off the Interstate at the Hazen exit and drove highway 70 to Brinkley then got back on I40.  according to the GPS, it only slowed me down about 5 minutes.  i think the GPS takes into account the slowdown for the road construction.
