For years, the stretch of road extending from the South Carolina State House was where senators mixed with shoppers and University of South Carolina students, where people from all over town came to dine and mingle. As people moved to the suburbs, buildings were shuttered.

But now, as Columbia residents reclaim downtown, the five blocks between Gervais and Blanding are back. Here, legislators and young professionals sip lattes and shop for holiday gifts side by side. Visit our top 10 spots along the now bustling street.

If you can monogram it, you can find it at this shop featuring linen handkerchiefs and baptism bonnets. In addition to personalized items, stock up on handwoven, palmetto-emblazoned bread baskets ($18) and Byrd’s Cheddar Biscuits ($14). 1204 Main Street; 803/661-7651

Hey Everyone! We are doing our next beer tasting this upcoming Thursday (9/20) from 5:30pm-7:30pm!  We have 4 amazing new Oktoberfest Biers for you to try out: Left Hand- Oktoberfest, Victory’s Festbier, Point’s Oktoberfest and Weyerbacher’s Imperial Pumpkin Ale!

A little information on Oktoberfest Biers and why you will love this style.  In the days before refrigeration, brewing was difficult or impossible in the warm summer months, and March was the time a big brew was made as a supply for summer.  This March or marzen beer was brewed to a fairly high gravity for protection against spoilage as it was stored away in cool cellars or caves.  At the end of the summer, when the new brewing season began, any beer left in storage was ceremoniously consumed.  The pouring of this special marzen coincided with the fall harvest festival, making for one big party.  The traditional German marzen is a medium-strong, reddish amber lager, with a malty body and aroma, which has been lagered, or conditioned, an unusually long time.

So please come and drop in for this long held German tradition!  We hope to see everyone there!


“Wear Wednesday” starts tonight.  Random Catgirl is our first vendor to kick this off.  She will be showing jewelry, hair accessories, and more.  Come in and check it out.  And we will offer an additional 10% off if you purchase from her tonight.  See you soon!
