Sunday, February 1st is the biggest night of the year for football fans. Don’t be one of those guys who’s home waiting for a pizza to be delivered when it’s kick off time.
This year’s Big Game features the West Coast versus the East Coast when the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots take to the field. If you don’t have tickets for the University of Phoenix (AZ) stadium (and few among us do), the next best thing is to head to a sports bar or restaurant where you’ll be surrounded by oversized TVs and excited fans who are as pumped up for the game as you are.
Kick-off is 6:30 p.m., but you’ll want to be well-settled in with your friends and family at least an hour or two earlier so you can catch the pre-game shows and engage in some friendly pre-game predictions.
Here’s where a lot of the Big Game fun will be happening this Sunday:
Chuck & Duck’s Sports Grill has nine 50-inch TVs that can be transformed into one jumbo display and you can lay down a bet that’s what will happen this Sunday. But that’s not all. Chuck & Duck’s also has fifty more 50-inch high-definition LED TVs that ensure you won’t miss one minute of any game. Even when you step out onto the patio, you’ll be able to watch the game on big-screen TVs while you relax around a fire pit. There will be special prices on wings, sliders, mozzarella sticks and loaded fries, while draft domestic beer will be $2 and bottles of domestic beer will be just $2.25. Call 843-232-7084 for more info.
If you think you need more than just the excitement of the Big Game to keep you amused, head over to the Original Shucker’s Raw Bar. You can play a little pool, darts, Golden Tee, Pin Ball, and even shuffleboard while the pre-game shows warm up the fans. Two big-screen projectors and 30 flat screen televisions will be tuned to the Pats and the Seahawks when you’re ready for kick off. Shucker’s is known for its fresh, raw seafood bar and specials on oysters, shrimp, mussels, and wings, so bring your appetite. Shucker’s famous Happy Hour prices will be in full-force on Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with $0.65 oysters and $0.55 for shrimp, mussels and wings. Selected appetizers are just $4.99. Daily drink specials will also be available. Need more info? Call 626-9535.
Love that stadium feel in a sports bar? Head to one of the largest sports bars along the Grand Strand, Broadway Louie’s. In this two-story sports spectator’s paradise, you’ll discover a 25-foot jumbo screen that puts you right in the middle of the action. Surrounded by four additional giant television screens and 35 smaller ones, you can’t possibly miss any of the epic on-field action that pundits are predicting. At Broadway Louie’s, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Food and drink specials, as well as contests, ensure you’ll be in on the action all night. More details at 445-6885.
If the Big Game is a time for your family to bond, head over to Hard Rock Cafe’s Rock n’ Bowl on Sunday. The game will be showing on all 12 hi-def TVs in the pyramid and also on a 10 x 14 jumbo screen. There will be half price apps and drink specials during the game. Each quarter, there will be a drawing for a door prize ($100, $200 and $300 values), ending with a grand prize as the game wraps up. Reservations are recommended if you want to get a “sideline” seat in front of the jumbo screen. There will even be a “Kid’s End Zone” open where the kiddos can enjoy complimentary board games, movies and snacks. Call 843-946-0007, ext. 208 for more info.
This Sunday is one night that you should not spend at home. Get out and get into the game!

Time to get in on the fun. Celebrate Hunt For Happiness Week at Broadway at the Beach!
Broadway at the Beach plays host to millions of visitors each year. Many enjoy dining at our wonderfully diverse collection of restaurants. Some just want to grab a snack at an ice cream, coffee or sweet shop. But no matter where they choose to get something to eat, it arrives at the table courtesy of a food server.
Food servers are pivotal to the success of any eatery, and great food servers can turn a meal — or even just a cup of coffee — into a memorable experience for a customer. Sometimes it’s with a smile, a little banter and crisp service. Other times, it’s just by being unobtrusive and efficient.
At Broadway at the Beach’s eateries, the servers are versatile, efficient, fun and friendly. With some not only providing great service, but a side of entertainment as well (think the waitstaff at Johnny Rockets or Senor Frog’s).
January is “Be Kind To Servers Month.” When you stop by one of our delicious eateries, we hope you’ll say a kind word to those who work so hard to serve up the food we all enjoy.

Are you still trying to find those specials gifts that show you’ve been thinking outside the box this year?
We’ve put on our thinking caps and come up with a few more suggestions.
How satisfying would it be to give a gift that’s loads of fun and puts a big smile on a child’s face? If they love toy trucks and cars, introduce them to RIDEMAKERZ at Broadway at the Beach where they can select and customize their own models. Their love affair with off-the-shelf models will fade as they fall in love with the many choices and options available. As your child customizes a car or truck, you’ll witness the blossoming of creativity, confidence, and self-expression. What better gifts could you give?
If you have friends who love the 70s, 80s and 90s, there’s only one place to go. For unique pop culture gifts that will delight them, head over to Retro Active. If you have a friend who has seen Caddyshack twenty times or quotes regularly from episodes of Saved By The Bell, there’s no better place to find that special holiday gift. From novelty items to tee shirts, even your quirkiest friends will cherish a gift they unwrap from Retro Active.
Still searching for something more than a rubber bone or catnip mouse for your four-legged companions this holiday season? Are you overwhelmed by the variety of choices at the mega-pet stores, but underwhelmed as you search for something unique? You may have better luck at a small shop like Reigning Cats & Dogs at Broadway at the Beach. This is where animal lovers can find the perfect gift for their own Lassie or Grumpy Cat. Check it out and enjoy the fun of discovering a store that stocks products like Tuffy the World’s Toughest Dog Toy, the “Fling ama String” cat toy, and Quaker City fresh catnip products.
This year, go for the unexpected and wrap up the unique.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And one of the most challenging.
At no other time of the year do we have to find so many gifts at one time for so many people. Family, friends, children, adults. What’s a shopper to do?
All the usual gifts come to mind — perfume, ties, jewelry — and any is likely to please. But this year, why not also add something unexpected, a little something that’s unique, that shows you’ve been thinking out of the box.
You may just start a whole new tradition as family and friends marvel at the thought and creativity you’ve devoted to your gift-purchasing pursuits. Remember it’s the big thought that counts!
Take the tumbler as an example. It may seem like an ordinary piece of drink ware, but it can deliver years of simple pleasures. On cold mornings, the person you’ve gifted will think of you when sipping a cup of hot joe on the way to work. When summer comes, your unique gift will be keeping iced tea cold while other gifts are stashed away in a closet.
If a tumbler seems like a good choice, here’s the big thing to remember: Don’t skimp on quality. Invest in a tumbler that comes with a lifetime guarantee. For example, Tervis tumblers sold at Broadway at the Beach’s Tervis store, are safe for the microwave and keep beverages colder and hotter longer with minimal condensation. A Tervis Tumbler can be customized to your specifications: decorate it with a sentimental photo, express a heartfelt sentiment, or add a whimsical saying that brings the extra gift of humor.
Do you have folks on your list who love the frivolous, appreciate the over-indulgent, and are not afraid of conspicuous consumption? Oversized tootsie rolls, giant boxes of dots, or enormous peanut butter cups may be the perfect gift for them. Such delights can be found at It’Sugar at Broadway at the Beach where just stepping in the door brings out the kid in you.
Know a little girl or little boy looking for that first cuddly companion? At Build-A-Bear Workshop at Broadway, they specialize in delivering happiness. How unexpected would a customized stuffed animal be under the Christmas tree? From teddy bears, to ninja turtles, to reindeer, you can dress them up and then all you need to do is follow your heart to create the perfect companion for that special someone in your life.
There’s nothing like a gift that gets the recipient out of the house and into an exotic world of fun. This Christmas, you can deliver all that with an annual pass to someone’s favorite venue.
For example, Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach delivers a year full of fun to those who have an annual pass. This is a gift that literally keeps on giving new experiences for 12 full months. An annual pass holder can visit the sharks, and stingrays, and experience new exhibits as many times as desired. Additional pass benefits include discounts at other Ripley’s attractions in Myrtle Beach and Gatlinburg (Tenn.), as well as discounts in the aquarium’s restaurant and the gift shop.
This year, add a little of the unexpected to the holiday season. Think outside the box and wrap up something unique.
Is getting your kid to actually eat a meal one of your greatest challenges? There’s a solution — and a meal that your children will be clamoring to go to.
It’s Breakfast with Santa — one of the highlights of the entire year of KIDdom.
This year, the man in the red suit plans to chow down with the little ones at two locations at BATB.
Mark your calendar.
Santa arrives at Ripley’s Aquarium on Saturday, December 6 for breakfast seatings at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. In the outside plaza, he’ll pass by a 20 foot tree decorated entirely in red, white and blue. Inside the aquarium, kids will be able to help themselves to a sumptuous buffet among the sharks, stingrays, mermaids and other marine life. There’s something for everyone: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, Belgian waffles, buttermilk biscuits, fruit salad, orange and apple juices, and coffee. Annual aquarium pass holders and kids 2 to 5 get admission to the aquarium and breakfast for just $4.99 plus tax, while those 6 to 11 pay $9.99 plus tax, and adults are $14.99 plus tax. Reservations are required, so call 916-0888.
After breakfast, check out Ripley’s annual Festival of Trees, a display of more than 50 decorated trees placed throughout the aquarium. Each tree represents a different state and is decorated with unique ornaments. The dazzling line-up of state trees includes our own South Carolina tree, which is 18 feet tall and features magnolias, golf balls, sea shell wreaths and stars, as well as ornaments representing the SC Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers.
At 11 a.m. that day, there’s a Ripley’s-sponsored holiday parade, so plan on being there for that as well!
Rock Around the Christmas Tree with Santa when Hard Rock Cafe hosts its annual Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 6, Saturday, December 13 and Saturday December 20. This event is a hot ticket every year. There is one seating at 9 a.m. on December 6, and two seatings on the 13th and 20th. If you’re an early riser, make reservations for the 8 a.m. event, or sleep in and come at 10 a.m.
For $9.95, kids of all ages can graze their way through a full breakfast buffet that includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast sticks, grits, biscuits with gravy, hash brown potatoes, danish, juice and coffee. Once tummies are full, each child can get one photo with Santa, and then enjoy a free activities room on December 13 and 20 with cup cake decorating (compliments of Coccadotts) or race cars (compliments of RIDEMAKERZ, Sparkles and Wonderworks). To make reservations, call 946-0007.
On December 6, 13 and 20, Santa Claus is coming to town!
Thanksgiving weekend is one of the best times of the year to enjoy Myrtle Beach. With our warm sun and uncrowded beaches, you can stroll along the sand undisturbed or stake out your own special fishing spot.
It’s especially easy to get in the holiday spirit at Broadway at the Beach. Take in a Christmas show at Legends In Concert or The Palace Theatre, or stop and see our 52- foot-tall Christmas tree decorated with 141,000 lights.
On Turkey Day, why slave over a hot stove? There are plenty of great places in Myrtle Beach to find a delicious meal on Thanksgiving Day. For example, several Broadway at the Beach restaurants will be serving up everything from traditional Thanksgiving fare to great steaks, awesome burgers and scrumptious seafood. After you feast at restaurants like Hard Rock Cafe, Landry’s Seafood or Good Time Charley’s, there’s no clean up. So, you’ll have plenty of time to stroll among the shops, play at attractions, and even enjoy some nightlife.
When the sun comes up on Black Friday, you can just roll over and catch a few more hours sleep. Skip the craziness at the mall and enjoy holiday bargain shopping that’s a breeze. After a leisurely mid-morning breakfast, head over to Broadway at the Beach and enjoy a stroll around the lake. There’s sunshine, fresh air and unique gifts at bargain prices. Shops including Tervis, A Silver Shack and Fresh Produce are offering 25% off. Bijuju, MA Fashion and Sports Fanatics are among those offering 40 to 50% off. And a few shops — like Sunglass Hut and Rack Room Shoes — are taking off as much as 60%.
This Thanksgiving weekend you don’t have to resign yourself to joining frenzied shoppers on an exhausting pilgrimage for holiday bargains. Come enjoy the beach, a show, and the Christmas lights.
If you know where to look you can find gifts that are unique, beautiful and unexpected at prices worth celebrating.
