Charleston is consistently voted one of the top tourist destinations in, not only in the United States, but also the world. In 2014 Condé Nast ranked it as #2 in the world, beating Paris, London, Madrid, and literally every other city other than Florence, Italy. Florence may have the Statue of David, but Charleston’s got SEWE.

SEWE’s inaugural year had 100 exhibitors and over 5,000 attendees, which is a pretty incredible debut, but it has steadily grown over the years. This year an expected 40,000 people will peruse 500 exhibitors. There is so much to do, be sure to pace yourself! We like to start out at the Gaillard Center to scope out all the awesome brands that set up shop there.

Exhibitors will include companies like Brackish, the handcrafted, one-of-a-kind feather bow ties that put nature’s fantastic array of feathered colors and designs on full display; Landrum Tables, master carpenter and Charlestonian Capers Cauthen, son of a leading preservationist, reclaims wood from all over the city to create incredible tables stained in history; Humble Boatworks, which builds anything but humble wooden canoes, and Dubarry of Ireland, an Irish company named after a French mistress that has made some of the best clothing and boots for exploring the great outdoors since 1937. Don’t forget your knife: Williams Knife Co. offers handcrafted knives perfect for hunting, fishing, and even an oyster knife designed specifically for Carolina coast oysters.

Over in Marion Square you can get your fill of chef demos and warm up around some serious fire pits. Animals will abound on the square too: The Center for Birds of Prey will allow you to get up close and personal with raptors, like falcon, eagles, owls, and hawks. The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary will show off the likes of alligators, snakes, bobcats, and so much more. And celebrity nature conservationist, Jeff Corwin, will be on hand for talks Friday and Saturday.

Then head over to Brittlebank Park for more great brands to peruse and watch the fly fishing, retriever demos!

Events will include the Ducks Unlimited Oyster Roast ($75 in advance) on Friday, which is a good ol’ fashioned lowcountry cookout with silent auction, live music, and, of course, open bar. If you want a live auction, opt instead for the South Carolina Waterfowl Association’s Sportsman’s Ball at the Omar Shrine Temple for dinner, drinks, and auction paddles.

Black tie galas, auctions, art, outdoor gear and accessories, and live, wild animals: this is one helluva weekend. Get your tickets now!

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.
Where is the original Shōgun available to stream?

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
Who's starring in The White Lotus season 3?
