Food items to bring for a move away from Chapel Hill/Durham?

White Lily self rising flour for biscuits and pancakes.

Athens, GA and Columbia, SC

I totally agree, FF! I think we in Columbia are having a hard time getting over our inferiority complex, only some of which is self-inflicted. My brother visited from NYC last week and he does not gush about food. We had a very nice lunch at Blue Marlin (his friend had never been to SC before so we wanted something kind of indigenous), then dinner that night at The Oak Table. They spent 3 days in Charleston visiting another brother and hit several high spots - Cypress, Hall's Chop House, Husk. Our meal at The Oak Table was the highlight of their trip. On previous visits he's also been very impressed with Rosso, Terra, Mr. Friendly's and Mojito's. We'll never be Charleston (and what town could?) but Columbia has a lot to offer in all price ranges. The Monday night burger and a beer special with live music at Tombo is as good as it gets.
