Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Just days from kickoff and there's more than one type of field prep going on.
"Just us, we have three lots going," said Zachary Taylor.
Taylor runs Jaco's, a bar at the corner of Rosewood Dr. and Bluff Rd. near Williams-Brice and says parking fans from near and far is part of the family business.
"One is run by my father. One is run by my sister. And one is run by my uncle," he said.
Taylor doesn't run a parking lot, but spends his game days inside running the bar, that's seen the Gamecocks at their worst and at their best inside Williams-Brice.
"This place was established in 1912," Taylor said. "My great grandfather and grandmother came down from Tennessee and opened this place up. He worked in the mill, started a little road side stand here and it eventually just grew."
Jaco is a family name and as family history tells it, the first parking spots were given to horses and buggies for the state fair.
"As far as I know, it's the oldest bar in the country in the same lineage," Taylor said.
Now the family just parks cars. They won't say how many, but if there's room, they've got a cold drink, the grass is cut, and they'll be happy to sell you a spot.
"It's all about football," Taylor said. "That's what we're all here for. It doesn't matter if you're a Georgia, North Carolina, or Gamecock fan, you can all come together under that banner and have a good time."
