Alright! Road trip! You will be passing through Columbia, SC (home of the gamecocks).
They actually have several great places to grub...If you are looking for a pub, check out either Delaney's or Puddlin Duck. Delaney's is more pronounced with the Irish Pub feel and they do have a better selection of brews so I guess I am hinting....If you ever hit Atlanta, let me know!
