A Gamecock Gal's Guide to Auburn

 We'll be heading to Jordan-Hare stadium this weekend to watch our Gamecocks take on Parker's Auburn Tigers. We actually love Auburn and although we haven't quite been convinced to live there {sorry, P!}, we think it's a mighty fine place to watch a ballgame. As for all you Gamecocks that are visiting for the first time, you're in for a treat! Night games are awesome at Auburn and the fans there exhibit some great hospitality. However, before you head to the game, take some time to explore. We've created a fabulous guide to our second favorite college town just for you. Enjoy and Go Cocks!

Momma Goldbergs: This is not even an option. If you come to Auburn, you must have a Momma's Love and an order of nachos! To put it in perspective, Momma G's is like the Groucho's of Auburn. The place is a hole in the wall and gets packed on Saturdays, so you might want to get it to go.

133 Longleaf Drive | {334}  821.2888 | 6:00 am to 3:00 am

Toomer's Drugs: Famous for the lemonade, Toomer's faces the corner on campus that the student's TP after a victory. Hopefully, some of that paper will still be billowing in the breeze after last week's win over Clemson.

Byron's: P is a barbeque aficionado, so we are going to defer to his expertise. His choice? Byron's: a long standing supporter and barbeque supplier of Auburn Athletics. Other notables: Mike & Ed's and Barbeque House.
436 Opelika Road | {334} 887.9981

Amsterdam Cafe: Looking for something a little more high end? Try Amsterdam Cafe. With a focus on farm to table with artisinal and handmade ingredients, AC is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and some delicious fare.
410 S Gay Street | {334} 826.8181

1716: Multiple TV's for pre-game football, drink specials, happy hour from 5-9 pm and a great patio.
156 E Magnolia Avenue | {334} 826.1211 | 5:00 pm to 2:00 am

Olde Auburn Ale House: A more low-key place to catch some games before the game and grab a drink. Also serving food and more recently, coffee.
124 Tichenor Avenue | {334} 821.6773 | 11:00 am to 2:00 am

War Eagle Supper Club: Infamous for their live music, late night atmosphere and Shot Bus. Purchase a membership to go to the front of the line. Velcro Pygmies are playing on Saturday after the game. Catch a ride back to town on the Slush Bus if you've had too much fun {and alcohol} for one night.
2061 S College Street | {334} 821.4455 |  Get there late night
