We know, it’s black Friday and that’s cool and all, but we’re most excited about tomorrow’s football games. All across the country teams take on their number one enemies, and in South Carolina that means that Clemson heads to Columbia tomorrow for a noon kickoff. We’ve thrown in some spots to catch the game while snagging good deals — if your bar or restaurant is offering a special rivalry game day special, let us know by emailing connelly@charlestoncitypaper.com.
