There’s nothing finer than to be in Carolina for a spring PDRA Racing event – even if the fans are sitting it out during the pandemic – so Coast Packing Company’s ’69 Noonan Hemi ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro, with CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson behind the wheel, will scream down the strip at The Legendary Darlington Dragway, June 11-13 – and wave the banner of “Takeout or Delivery” #FatMap843.
To mark the PDRA Carolina Showdown, the second “crowd-less” event of the season, Coast has updated its special online gastronomic #FatMap843, showcasing local spots where fans can “Taste the Difference” that lard and beef tallow make in popular dishes – dishes now available exclusively by delivery or on a take-out basis (explore the #FatMap). The 50 locations across 18 cities on #FatMap834 all feature dishes prepared with lard and/or beef tallow.
Based in Hartsville, the Dragway is situated northeast of Columbia and due north of Charleston, with Myrtle Beach to the southeast – an area loaded (or shall we say, “larded”) with spots offering take-out and/or delivery of authentic South Carolina fare.
Visitors can order up some traditional Southern cooking at Palmetto Pig Bar-B-Q Restaurant in Columbia, Black Roosterin West Columbia and Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits in Florence – one of 21 outlets in the region. Also in Florence: Roger’s BBQ and Wholly Smokin’ Downtown. Those heading down to Myrtle Beach may want to try Fire and Smoke Gastropub and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen – one of nine in the area. Speaking of tried and true, Cracker Barrel operates six outlets in this part of South Carolina, while Outback Steakhouse has nine.“While there’s always something magical about dining-in at a spot skilled at preparing regional specialties, the fact is that this kind of cuisine travels well – and tastes just as flavorful and satisfying when delivered or enjoyed at home,” Gustafson says.
