What parrotheads are coming to Columbia?

Post by PHnSC »

I was just wondering how many people on this board will be in Columbia this year for the show. I met a lot of people last year from out of town and had lots of fun. I hope to meet many more this year. Great to see the show sold out again. Fins up April 29th!! :lol: [/quote]

I'm coming. This will be my 30th JB show. I haven't seen him since 2001 because of financial reasons. So I'm really, really looking forward to it!

How's the Holiday Inn Columbia, City Center @ USC? That's where we'll be staying :)

Glad to hear your able to make the trip. The Holiday Inn is a nice hotel. Its directly across from the Colonial Center. In the heart of downtown. that is where majority of visiting football fans stay during college football season.

I was hoping it was a nice place considering the price for a night there, lol! Don't think this is lame or anything, but I'm taking my parents to the show as an early anniversary present. My mother has loved JB since I first began seeing him in 1987 and she's never been to a show. I have been bugging her every year and she's always found some excuse not to go. Not this time tho ;)

They retired and relocated to Murrells Inlet last year. So they'll be meeting me in Columbia to go to the show. I think they're going to love it!

Well good, its about time she experienced Buffett. My mother actually got me involved in listening to Jimmy. She took me to my first concert when I was 13 and have been going ever since. Last year I got some of my friends to go for the first time and they loved it, and will be with me again this year, along with good old mom. :lol:

The Mrs. and I will be there with beads on..... :lol: 8) :pirate: We missed Columbia last year, so we'll have to be twice the trouble this year... :wink: We're staying at the Holiday Inn across the street, so at least we shouldn't get lost stumbling back to the room ....
Buffett fans are a breed apart. Just like JB himself...

We are also staying at the Holiday Inn! I talked to the sales person and they have a free shuttle to take us anywhere. So we can catch it over to Jullian's before the show? And then have them shuttle us over to the Colonial?

I too was surprised that they were charging $100 a night on a Thursday night. They must have know that Buffett was coming.

The missus and I also will be staying at the Holiday Inn across from the Colonial Center. Sounds like the Parrotheads will be taking over the hotel! We're looking forward to Columbia again; it was a great show last year!
I lived in Columbia 20 years ago and it's nice to get back to the Palmetto State ... See you guys there. We'll be wearing our "BuffettNews.Com" nametags. 8)

We got two people flying down from Fargo, ND. I have a brother and his wife who live in Spartanburg SC. They have never seen Jimmy, and are huge fans. So I figured, why not? I treated on the tickets. Hope they are good. We got in section 110 behind the stage. Every time I have had seats behind the stage, they have been wonderful. Hope that will be true in Columbia!. We are all excited.
Hope to see you there. Where are your seats?

This will be my second Columbia show and I am excited! Also coming up from Atlanta, and staying with family in Columbia so we are good to go. We've got much better seats than last year and I think it's a good venue for the show.

Our seats are going to be a surprise when we get them in the mail. You couldn't buy HC seating for some reason through Ticketmaster, so we called the guy who runs the ticket office. He said he would get us some decent seats in the HC section. Keeping my fingers crossed. :wink:

I am not sure about the Hampton, but I know that the Best Western is about 4 blocks away. Talked to the front desk and they said its sidewalks all the way. Plus you get a delux breakfast with your room when you stay there.

The Hampton Inn is not far from the Center. You are in The Vista area. Lots of restuarants like Long Horn Steakhouse, John Pauls. Good area, its only a few blocks from the Center. Glad to see so many of you are coming down. Cant wait to meet some of you guys.
