Your Mom's House / Good Times, 2006 Senate Street: late 2012   5 comments

Posted at 12:27 am in Uncategorized









It's really uncanny how many times this little locaation on Senate Street, tucked behind Food Lion and Cookout has opened and closed. In fact, I completely missed the closing of Your Mom's House (the follow-on operation to The Cock Lounge) and both the opening *and* closing of Good Times.

I have to say, looking in the windows, that for having hosted so many clubs, the interior looks quite Spartan..

One constant as the club names come and go, is the magnificent Magnolia tree in the side yard!

UPDATE 1 July 2014 -- It's to be Harambe Ethiopian Restaurant:

  1. Used to be Gilligan at some point. They'd serve free beer when the train went by.

    Not to be confused with the seafood restaurant - not related.

  2. Hey Ted the a href listing linking to the Cook Loungue isn't closed properly. at the end of the URL is the quote that is needed but the > to fully close the HTML (the closing tag looks right but the > on the opening a href tag isn't showing the way it should).

  4. Actually, I've had some good times in this place. I don't live in Columbia, but I travel through there sometimes and Good Times is one of the off beaten paths place I've been.

  5. My history with this place goes back to Ribby's in the 80s. Really good made-on-site bbq, cold beer and USC girls playing beach volleyball. What's not to love? But something about this location spooked potential customers. I think it was the old "out of sight - out of mind" problem. If it had been 100 steps closer to campus and more visible from Harden Street it might still be there.
