Top Ten Tips for Mizzou Trip
Posted on Sep 7, 2012 by Cheri Leavy |
Vance and I got to Columbia yesterday arriving on a plane packed with Bulldogs. The Bulldogs haven’t played Missouri since 1960 when Fran Tarkenton led the Dawgs to a Georgia victory in the Orange Bowl. So this is a really fun and important road trip to welcome our new members of the Southeastern Conference.
We walked the beautiful campus and charming downtown areas before connecting with our publisher buddy, Fred Parry. You will find his publication,Inside Columbia and some special sections, in your hotel rooms when you arrive.
There is a great Inside the SEC section in The Ultimate Fan’s Guide to Game Day that you will enjoy. The Tigers are trying to understand us. I loved seeing each of our teams and traditions profiled in print and realizing this is just knowledge I grew up with and these folks are having to study up on their new peers.
We have enjoyed their fans so much. We went to a ‘Culinary Adventures’ event that Parry was hosting at his magazine office that boasts a full teaching kitchen, dining room and wine cellar. Guest chef and native Columbian, Adam Wells-Morgan, talked Cheeses 101 and wine pairings and our very own Bulldog, Vance Leavy, spoke about Russ and Uga lineage. Both speakers were popular and informative for the Mizzou crowd.
Here are TEN TIPS we learned from the friendly group:
1. Sycamore Restaurant is incredible for fine dining and we went and can concur! Ilise and Damien Cooke (pictured) took great care of us. The pork belly sliders with napa cabbage and apple slaw are a MUST! One of their desserts caters to our Peach State as it is a Peach Tartlet. They are open at 11 a.m. on Saturday for all day dining pre-game. I apologize for photo quality but I want you to see them and say hi when you go!
2. Taxi Terry is a very clean and nice cab company 573-441-1414
3. Booches at 110 S 9th Street is legendary in town for lunch. Their niche is the mini-burger and order it with everything and get three. We were told to anticipate an aloof server but the food is worth the wait. Cash only.
4. Mugs Up sounds like our version of the drive up at The Varsity. They make their own rootbeer and the chili dog is the deal.
5. Shakespeare’s Pizza is one of their points of pride and it smelled delicious in passing. They sell by the slice so be sure to grab it even as a snack.
6. Chef Adam Wells- Morgan said that The Club at Old Hawthorne where he is executive chef welcomes reciprocal SEC country club members to join them for dining. 573-442-5280
7. Chef Adam Wells- Morgan said he eats most at Murry’s Restaurant. It is inexpensive and serves food til midnight. Get the fried green pepper rings. Good food and good jazz since 1985.
8. Shiloh Bar and Grill is a fun Mizzou bar but anticipate a sea of yellow and black that may feel too much like Georgia Techfest.
9. Cranes Country Store, a fourth generation family owned business in Williamsburg, sells everything from britches to bologna. When I say they sell bologna, the owner David Crane said they sell 45 pounds of bologna a week and on a game Saturday 400-500 sandwiches. Mustard and mayo only on white bread that he claims is so fresh it sticks to your teeth!
10. Blue Note is the spot for music. The Blue Note brings the best live musical acts to Columbia and Mid-Missouri. Since 1980, The Blue Note has brought acts such as Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, O.A.R., Modest Mouse, Cage the Elephant, Eli Young Band, Bassnector, Snoop Dog, and countless others.
Let’s be gracious good guests and show them the best of the SEC was their first game in the league. We are headed to some neat parties tonight and out on the town and hope to see you! It’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog! Pick up next week’s issue or go online to see the photos. The “PUParazzi” is out and about in Columbia, Missouri this weekend.
