Charleston is turning 10 and we couldn't be more excited. In August 2000, Fish opened it's doors on Upper King Street and has enjoyed success as one of the pioneer restaurants of the culinary scene in that burgeoning neighborhood. Specializing in sustainable seafood and fish, Chef Nico Romo has created a menu that reflects French-Asian flavors in a unique style. And just this past year, Chef Romo, a native of France, received the honor of Master Chef of France. He is the youngest to receive this title and is among only 500 chefs in America to reach this status, as well as the only chef in South Carolina.

No wonder the National Christmas Tree Association is bringing their annual convention and trade show to the Tar Heel State this year. This year's event will be held in Winston-Salem August 11-14 and draws Christmas tree growers, wholesalers, retailers, Choose & Cut farmers, and related industry members across the country and around the world. A nice reminder that there are only 136 days until Christmas!

The Swag. Located in the Smoky Mountains of Waynesville, North Carolina, The Swag is the perfect summer getaway for rest, relaxation, nature and nurture. Located in western North Carolina, about 50 miles west of Asheville, atop a 5,000 ft. mountain (hence the cooler temperatures), The Swag offers hand-hewn log cabins, panoramic views, romantic amenties (like copper tubs and steam showers) in every cabin, gourmet dining in The Swag House, and the granduer of Great Smoky Mountains National Park in their backyard. And that doesn't even mention the drop in blood pressure you'll experience with the slower pace and casual comfort that reminds you of a less hurried era. I'm cooler and calmer just thinking about a few days at The Swag.
