Animal Adventure Park might have good news. In a video posted on the park's Facebook page Tuesday afternoon, owner Jordan Patch said he had "pretty exciting news" to share with the world. With the park's calf, Tajiri — who was born April 15, 2017 and now stands just over 10 feet tall — venturing in and out of the camera shot behind him, Patch said, "We have some exciting news today as we continue our journey."

Tickets start at $43. Sedaris has visited Charleston since that '06 cover story (we we even wrote another cover story in '07), stopping by Blue Bicycle Books in 2010, the Charleston Music Hall in 2013, and the Gaillard Center in 2016.

Last month Sedaris was a guest on Stephen Colbert's The Late Show, talking about his new book, Calypso, and some upcoming college commencement speeches he'd been asked to give. He tells Colbert, "It kinda makes you wonder, 'What do I know?'" Sedaris … [Read more...] about 13 years after his first City Paper cover, David Sedaris will be back in Charleston next April
