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.

Fatz is a chain that is just like an Applebees.  Don't waste your time in it.

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.

Thanks for the info. We ended up going to Baan Sawan, I hadn't seen your responses before we went. It was very good.

I'd been told that five points might be too young of a crowd, but it's my first time in Columbia and I was 25 three years ago! Haha

We just got back to the hotel though, I guess I am old!

ESPN presents the SEC fan guide to Starkville

Quote
Matt and Stefanie in Starkville write: Tucked away between a bridge and the fire station on University Drive is a dilapidated building next to an empty gas station. From the outside, the place looks abandoned like in an episode of Scooby-Doo with its outdoor dining area consisting of lawn chairs. Beneath the shabby exterior, however, is the vibrant and, might I mention, always packed Stromboli's of Starkville, Mississippi. Stromboli's is considered the go-to pizza place of Starkvegas.

Do any of the Fayetteville natives have any feeling for what Thanksgiving night will be like around the city?  Mainly, will any restaurants/bars be open?  Surely Dickson will have at least some things open, right?

As a PSA if anyone has information on restaurants that will be open in NWA on Thanksgiving day it would be greatly appreciated.

 I'll be driving in on Thursday and I'm thinking that since I'm missing Tday w/ the family this year someplace that is open would help!

This Hog fan and FHS Bulldog parent will most likely be in North Little Rock watching Fayetteville play NLR is the 7A state semis.  That is assuming NLR beats Cabot and FHS beats Conway this Friday.  I finally get LSU on campus and I am the one that's going to be in Little Rock.  This is the one year I wish LSU was in War Memorial!! That is the definition of irony.

I've done some calling around, and here is what I've been able to come up with.  I really only polled places on Dickson, so if you're not staying in that vicinity then this might not apply.

Open:
Powerhouse - opens @ 5
Grub's - opens @ 5
Jose's - opens @ 5
Ella's - open 5-7:30 - Serving a thanksgiving buffet
Bordino's - open from 6 until midnight

Closed:
Farrells
21st Amendment
US Pizza
Hugo's
Doe's

Most bars aren't open yet, so I don't have a real good feel for what those are looking like.  However, the owner of 21st Amendment said that the only thing he's ever seen open on Thanksgiving (bar-wise) was a Kareoke bar called You-know Uno.

I will be in Fayetteville thanksgiving night. I have lived here almost eleven years and this will be a new experience with a football game the day after thanksgiving. Yes, it will probably be a good idea to go out on dickson street thanksgiving night for a different environment than what people have been used to.

In the early 1990s the Nam was a ghost town by Noon on the day before Thanksgiving and the herd didn't return until Sunday afternoon.




I will be shocked out of my socks if they sell out and fill the place up.

Been there once. Don't remember the route we took. We ate at Ryans. I left unimpressed. We won the game though, clinching the SEC-W division title.

I reecommend that you go through Starkville and go to Philidelphia.  At least you can gamble and get good food and you don't have to watch us get our arshe handed to us again.  Also, you don't have to loogosh awful uniforms that  are not our colors or tradition!!!!
