Thumbs up Howdy! - Tailgating question

Howdy!

I will be making the trip to Columbia next week with a couple of buddies of mine and wanted to see what the tailgating etiquette is like in SC. Being that this is my first away SEC game, I want to make sure that it is done right.

(Stating the obvious, we will not be disrespectful to your University, Alumni and fellow tailgaters. We want to have a great time!)

Any suggestions on things to do in regards to pregame?

How soon does pregame start for a 6 pm kickoff?

In my group, we are avid drinkers, do ya'll do any recreational beer pong, flip cup, corn hole... drinking games before the games? If so, would you all accept new challengers perhaps? ;)

We would like to join an SC tailgate with a charitable donation $$$, of course, or coolers of beer. Are there any rules in the tailgating area regarding alcohol on the premises?

If we were to show up with some 8 - 10 cases of beer, would we be frowned upon from crashing a tailgate?

Any information is greatly appreciated and we look forward to visiting you next week.

Gig'em!

Ags 35 - SC 31 (unless of course you have the "Wheel Route" in the playbook!)

You'll find plenty of hospitality and plenty of people will welcome you with open arms.

The one thing we do frown upon is someone drinking all our liquor. Don't do that.

You show up with that much beer and you'll get fed.

You can drink all you want across the street from the stadium. Smoking may cause you some problems though. I don't think you will have a problem "crashing" a tailgate bringing that much beer. I don't really consider that crashing. Crashing is when people show up with nothing which happens all the time. I would probably bring something a little stronger than beer though, easier to carry.

Thank you very much for the feedback!

I typically do not take liquor to games because the good stuff is usually in glass bottles, are there any restrictions towards glass bottles in the tailgating areas?

Are there restaurants or bars close to the stadium?

There's a Bojangles, which has fried chicken. Pretty good food for a tailgate. Other than that, there's not much in regards to an actual dining restaurant. Most good bars are in the vista. Check out world of beer while you're in town. On another note, if you bring 8-10 cases you'll be welcomed anywhere.

You'll see some tailgater that have full stocked bars. There are no restrictions on glass where I tailgate. The one thing that I noticed about our tailgating that is so well enforced is that everyone picks up after themselves. I have been to a few other schools and it looks like a bomb blew up at the dump after the game.

Have a great time. You'll meet a lot of great people mixed in with your occasional dick weed.

In addition to the aforementioned Bojangles, there is a new BBQ place called Cockpit BBQ on Bluff rd across from the fairgrounds. I have not been there so cannot give a review. There is also a waffle house on the other side of the stadium.

It's a small room on the side of a gas station. Alright que, brisket is supposed to be awesome. Wasn't fond of their sauces.

If we wanted to start tailgating 7-8 am, would we be able to park anywhere around the stadium?

Everyone else will have their glass bottles as well but tbh from 7 am to mid 5 something pm? You will be dead from the liquor I drink in that heat, beer is a safer bet with some shots mixed in when you lose your little beer buzz just to keep her rolling.

Party on man!
