City of Columbia
City Manager Teresa Wilson has lived in famously hot Columbia, South Carolina all her life. She remembers trips to Pecknel Music Store with her family as they learned to play the piano and drums.
She also remembers the entrees of Garibaldi’s, “it was a classic!” Today, she still enjoys Five Points, yet in a different way – during the early morning for coffee at Drip or Starbucks. When it’s time for lunch or dinner, Harper’s Restaurant is a favorite spot of hers.
Teresa’s favorite event in Five Points? Anytime the main fountain is dyed for a special occasion. Wilson and her daughter also enjoy the St. Pat’s parade; they ride the float with her daughter’s classmates.
