  1. Matt83USC and I went to check it out Friday night at about midnight and there were a lot of people in there. Promising sign... lets just see what happens when the "newness" wears off.
  2. Lets just say I'm glad I pay my taxes to Richland County and not Lexington County
  3. Well I work in West Columbia so I was looking at either Lexington or Irmo, and I ultimately chose Irmo. The NE is a good area and it is closer to where you will work. I would have considered that area as well, except that it was too far from my office. While I liked Lexington, here's what influenced me to choose Irmo as the place to buy my first home: 1) Proximity to freeway - I-26 is just a couple miles or so from my house. Hop on I-26 and you can be at I-20 or I-77 in minutes. 2) Proximity to shopping and dining - Harbision is only about 4 miles from where I live. I can be there in 10 minutes or less. There are more things to do in this area than in Lexington. 3) Political climate - Although it may seem petty, I like the politics of Richland county better than Lexington county. I think Lexington county is not as "progressive", for lack of a better term, than Richland county. That's about it. Both areas have comparable real estate prices. Actually, as I recall, there were a lot of houses in NE Richland county that I wanted to look at, but were too far away for my purposes. I think the prices are a little better in that area too. It wouldn't have been worth the time/gas/wear & tear on my vehicle to save a bit on the house price though. I'm sure that you will be happy with whatever area you choose. Keep us informed.
  4. I'd certainly give the Ruths Chris restaurant some business! I'd love to see one in Columbia!
