Travel Tips for Columbia

"Hot" Sauce

by b1bob

No, Maurice's Original Barbecue Sauce is not hot with spice or fire, but rather with controversy. All controversy aside, let me say that it is a good mustard-based barbecue sauce that offers a hint of sweetness to offset the pungency of mustard. From a culinary standpoint, it is a perfectly good sauce.

As I alluded to in my restaurant tip on Maurice's Barbecue, Maurice Bessinger- the owner of the restaurant chain and barbecue sauce business- is not shy about his beliefs, waving a Confederate flag at his restaurants and putting its emblem on each bottle. Some stores like Wal-Mart and Sam's Club have bowed to pressure by some small but vocal groups who seem to mistakenly believe they have a right never to be offended and took Maurice's Barbecue sauce off their shelves. It can still be found at Piggy Wiggly grocery stores. If anything, the controversy has helped Maurice's business as many locals either go there in defiance of the controversy or simply to get some good barbecue. Outsiders who hear of the controversy go there to see what it's all about and, like me, are genuinely impressed by the taste of the barbecue and the lack of pretence about the place.

Maurice's Barbecue Sauce and other things can be ordered from their website and shipped all over America. International shipment is possible for a price.

Dixie Controversy

by zrim

What would the South be without controversy lagging from the Civil War era.

At the front of the capitol building there is largish Civil War monument that honors the soldiers of South Carolina who gave their lives to a cause for which they firmly believed. The monument has been standing since the 1800s. No question that the monument is appropriate and tasteful. Most towns of any consequence have a veterans memorial of some kind.

The controversy arises from the confederate flag that flies just behind the monument. For many years the rebel flag flew above the capitol building itself. But as public opinion mounted against the flying of a symbol that is distasteful to African-Americans it was decided (correctly in my opinion) to adopt a different state flag. However, a vocal group of South Carolinians demanded that the flag fly somewhere on the capitol grounds (and I have no problem with that decision). It was decided to fly the confederate flag next to the Civil War monument.

Now we come to the real controversy. Some groups asked why the the confederate flag should be flown at the front of the capitol grounds while the Africa-American Heritage monument is shunted off to one side. People have real strong feelings on the issue. But as a northerner not embroiled in teh controversy, I have to say that it seems to just make common sense. If the confederate flag is to fly, it should be next to the Civil War monument and it seems nonsensical to suggest that a monument weighing hundreds of tons should be relocated. Finally, I have to say that to me, as an outsider, I felt that the confederate flag in no way detracted from the beautiful African-American Heritage monument.

Governor's Mansion

by b1bob

The building which houses the Governor of South Carolina started out housing officers of the Arsenal Military Academy in 1855. Governors of South Carolina have called this home since 1868. It is more than just a place for a governor to hang his hat. Its public rooms contain china, furniture, paintings and documents that show the heritage and history of South Carolina. Some of the more notable former inhabitants of this mansion are Strom Thurmond, Ernest Hollings, John West, and Carroll Campbell. The current inhabitant is Mark Sanford, a Republican from Charleston.

Why Am I the Only Member of My Family

by etfromnc

Why am I the only member of my family who has never lived here? It might have something to do with the heat. One of my brothers, who lives there now, says that the only thing seperating Columbia from Hell is a screen door.
