The 2011 Southeastern Wildlife Exposition kicked off on Wednesday night with a reception at the Mills House Hotel and a wild game dinner at Hall's Chop House, which will be serving its meat dishes with their signature hospitality all weekend long - because SEWE kicks off a wild weekend of celebration at Hall's. A special preview afternoon artwork viewing for VIP's was conducted Thursday followed by the SEWE black tie Gala, which was attended by Governor Nikki Haley. The three full days of the Expo will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday - and the weather this year is sure to attract outdoor enthusiasts in record numbers. Just think, it was snowing at the DU oyster roast this time last year!
