Soft Drink Machine Museum

"Wow" is all I can say. This museum is incredible, and Alan is so knowledgeable and passionate about the history of soft drink machines and vending machines. He gave us a guided tour, and even a free soda to go! He was such an interesting guy and we will remember this for a lifetime. Can't wait to revisit when the complete museum is finished, and go gamecocks!
