Default Jamil Shriners Temple and the surrounding area

The girlfriend and I are heading into Columbia for a roller derby tournament at the end of April. The Jamil Temple is the host venue. I haven't been to Cola in years, and was mainly around Williams Brice every time I was there. Any thoughts on the surrounding area, decent hotels (although we will hardly be there, except to sleep, so it ain't gotta be fancy), food, etc. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Best bet would be Harbison, probably best deal one of the hotels on Lake Murray Blvd. What kind of food do you like?

It's off of St Andrews road which has a number of good restaurants like Nicks and Denos Greek places. WG's wings and Inakaya Japanese are two good ones. A number of others exist there also. Don't know of any hotels on that road but one mile down I 20 at exit 63 is a Double Tree on Bush River Rd. Hope that helps some. Be safe traveling!

Harbison isn't far and downtown is probably only 10-15 minutes away.

Not exactly, but she is a referee like me. Only she looks much better in stripes than I ever will.

We're open to everything food wise, but I'm probably gonna have BoJangles every day for breakfast after living in Utah for 4+ years. We will definitely need a good BBQ place to hit up, but we ain't gonna go crazy on $ in Columbia, since we are going to Charleston for two after the tournament is wrapped up.

Hell no. Good ol' quad roller skates!

Should be a fun time, with the teams I've heard traveling in, and my lady has never been to Carolina. I'm just excited to be headed back home to the South again

Your best bet to be near Jamil is one of the hotels at Piney Grove & I-26. Jamil Temple is between Piney Grove & St Andrews. Jamil Road is the frontage road along I-26. A good retaurant to check out in the area is British Bulldog Pub. It's in Columbiana Station on Bower Parkway. I would think the QuadSquad would set up a deal with a hotel so you may want to check on that.

There's a Motel 6 right across the interstate on St. Andrews Road...

But if you're looking for something a little more upscale, there's a Comfort Suites on Saturn Blvd. that's right next to the Best Buy on Harbison. It's easy to get onto the interstate or you can turn left onto Bower Parkway and go straight across Piney Grove Road directly onto Jamil Road.

Yeah, I'm sure they've set up something with a host hotel, but they don't always have the best deals. Plus, I'm too lazy to dig back through my emails.

Thanks for the all the info everyone.

I just wanted to thank all of you for the info once again. The tournament itself is fun, but tough for me and the missus to get out together at times because we're busy and on different crews. Eatin Bojangles every morning, hit up the Lizards Thicket last night, and finally got to try some Bells Two Hearted Ale when I went to Green's. (amazing selection there)
Gonna try to make it to Little Pigs since we couldn't make it before closing, but I'm craving some good BBQ.
