Rockaway's is a great place to enjoy comfort food. It is actually where Thomas and I had our first date! They are known for their pimento cheese burger and pimento cheese fries. Caution: Be prepared to get messy when you order the pimento cheese fries, as there is no easy way to enjoy them, but they are ever so worth it.
As I am sure you have already figured out, Rockaway's is known for their pimento cheese burger and fries. So much so, President Bush ate lunch there when he was in town, because you really can't leave Columbia without trying either of the two.
After a very comforting dinner, the group decided we wanted to head downtown to The Rooftop Bar on top of the Sheraton Hotel. The hotel opened over a year ago along with the bar. Thomas talked about going there plenty of times last summer and I was always hesitant because for whatever reason I always felt like the first time we go we needed to have a group of friends with us. Don't ask why I felt this way, because I have no clue. So last night was the night to take the plunge. The Rooftop Bar is on the 17th floor of the Sheraton Hotel with amazing views of downtown Columbia. The bar was crowded, but not packed, there were plenty of seats at the bar, where we sat and enjoyed each others company as well as the beautiful skyline. It was such a neat atmosphere with an incredible view, so much so you didn't feel like you could possibly be in Columbia. The bar was a big hit with the entire group and we will definitely be back. With or without a group of friends!
