One quarter of all the pasta consumed around the world is eaten by Americans. We’re passionate about pasta, enjoying more than 6 billion pounds of the versatile dough every year. In fact, the United States is the biggest consumer of pasta in the world.
Spaghetti is just one of more than 600 types of pasta— each named for its shape. Whether your passion is for Conchiglie (shells), Capellini (fine hairs), Rigatoni (fluted tubes), Tortellini (little cakes), or just regular spaghetti (cords), you’ll get a chance to celebrate its versatility on October 17, National Pasta Day.
Capriz at Broadway at the Beach is a restaurant built on the broad shoulders of this favored food. In honor of the day, chef Corey Schoenig of Capriz has agreed to share his “from scratch” recipe for an arugula pesto dish.
Capriz House-Made Pasta Recipe
1 2/3 cups durum flour
2 tablespoons semolina
2 medium or large eggs
1 tablespoon olive oil
A pinch of sea salt
Make the basic pasta dough:
1. Sift the flour onto a clean work surface and make a well in the center with your fist.
2. Break the eggs into the well and add the oil and a pinch of salt to the well.
3. Gradually mix the egg mixture into the flour using the fingers of one hand, bringing the ingredients together into a firm dough. If the dough feels too dry, add a few drops of water; if it’s too wet, add a little more flour
4. Knead the pasta until smooth, 2 to 5 minutes. Rub with light oil and pop the dough into a plastic food bag. Allow it to rest at room temperature.
Then form desired pasta
Cook in boiling water to desired tenderness
Capriz Arugula Pesto Recipe
2 lbs basil shocked and cooled (ring out well) stems discarded
2 cups arugula
1.5 qts blended oil
salt and pepper
½ cup parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp chopped garlic
Method: Add rough chopped basil and arugula to robo wand (hand emersion blender), salt and pepper. While on, add a small amount of oil to form a paste and mince basil well. Start to drizzle in rest of oil. Add the pesto sauce to your desired pasta, garnish with fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil, fresh diced Roma tomatoes, and some grated parmesan.
The Grand Strand famously brags that it has 60 miles of beach, but few of us ever dream of walking its entire length. A brisk mile and most of us are good to go.
Have you ever wondered how far you walk when you stroll around Broadway at the Beach? It’s an easy 1.3 miles.
Most folks don’t notice the distance they’re walking because they’re so busy taking in the sites.
It’s easy to be entranced by people zipping back and forth across Lake Broadway on the Soar & Explore zipline. And, periodically, the roar of the dragon at Dragon’s Lair Fantasy Golf course grabs everyone’s attention.
Happy music and the laughter of small children enjoying kiddie rides seems to always be in the air, while the excited screams of bigger kids and adults delighting in thrill rides inspire many more to take on those challenges.
Even looking to the sky from Broadway showcases the fun and excitement of Helicopter Adventures giving guests on short flights a bird’s eye view of Myrtle Beach.
While the sites are engaging, the smells are enticing. The aromas that drift out of the many different restaurants inform the senses that there are a lot of good food choices to be had. It’s also easy to be charmed into snacking by the sweet scents of taffy or fudge being freshly made in shop windows.
Even sitting down for a break fills the senses. Celebrity Square is a good place to pause, listen to music coming out of the clubs, and do some people watching.
Up and walking again, there’s temptation to recharge your internal engine with something sweet from It’Sugar where just about every kind of candy — from old favorites to new confections — is available.
A walk around Broadway is about more than just going the distance. It’s a positively awesome way to enjoy the largest entertainment venue in South Carolina, and to understand why millions of visitors come to Broadway every year.
Are you ready to change out your wardrobe for fall, but feeling a little strapped for cash? Consider investing in a few nice scarves or shawls. These simple accessories can update your fall line-up dramatically — and cost-efficiently.
Scarves have been adding color and panache to wardrobes since ancient times. But it took until the mid-20th century for scarves to become a fashion essential. Today’s 21st century scarves are literally wonders of style, comfort and versatility.
For a crisp, finished look, a soft woven scarf in a lovely pattern can be draped loosely around the neck and anchored by large knots tied at its ends. Want to look casual but neat? Loop one end of a scarf through the other and smooth down each side. Tie a bow in a scarf and place it jauntily to one side for a bit of feminine mystique. When you’re feeling a little chill in the air, casually drape a scarf over your shoulders and enjoy the added warmth.
The simple infinity scarf is a great example of easy versatility. A soft-knit continuous loop, it can be draped around the neck and then styled in any number of ways.
The multi-talented shawl is also a member of the scarf family, although it is more free-flowing and somewhat all-encompassing. On cool nights, a woman’s best friend may be that ultimate cozy scarf, the poncho.
Just about any fabric or pattern can be turned into a scarf. From silk to wool to paisley and stripes, it all depends on your taste, desired texture, and planned use.
If you’re curious about how you can make scarves a supporting player in your fall wardrobe, why not get some input from the experts? Bijuju at Broadway at the Beach is an accessory boutique whose staff is just waiting to brief you on the latest ways to wear scarves.
The right scarf can be that fashion essential that brings a look together, defines an outfit, contributes the right dash of color, or helps you to make a new fashion statement.
With the right scarf, you can be ready for anything.

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day when all who love the delicious beef patty topped with cheese celebrate one of the world’s greatest culinary inventions.
At Broadway at the Beach, many of our restaurants are known for serving delicious burgers with any number of wonderful accompaniments from cheeses like swiss, blue and American, to bacon, tomato, fried onions and more. Some, like Johnny Rockets, even serve burgers up with a song and a dance.
Today, as we celebrate, we hope these five fun facts about cheeseburgers will get your mouth watering for your next burger delight.
Three different states claim to be the birthplace of the cheeseburger. California says Lionel Sternberger was working in his father’s Pasadena sandwich shop in 1928 when he experimented with dropping a slice of American cheese on a beef patty —and the cheeseburger was born. But Kentucky claims a Louisville restaurant called Kaelin’s invented the cheeseburger in 1934. And Colorado says that the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver invented the cheeseburger in 1935, and has both a 1944 court order and a trademark to prove it.
A cheeseburger can be really, really big. Minnesota may not have been the state that launched the cheeseburger craze, but it holds the world’s record for the BIGGEST cheeseburger. In 2012, a casino there served up a 2,014-pound bacon cheeseburger that was 10 feet in diameter.
Cheeseburgers can get pretty pricey. Some cheeseburgers cost way more than a great steak. In New York, $295 will get you a “Burger Extravagant” with black truffles, cheddar cheese, a fried quail egg, caviar and more served on a gold-dusted roll. For $666, a food truck serves up sarcasm with its pricey cheeseburger made of Kobe beef wrapped in gold leaf and topped with foie gras, lobster, truffles and gruyere cheese melted with champagne steam.
Cheeseheads celebrate the cheeseburger too. Wisconsin is a state where its citizens proudly call themselves “cheeseheads” and wear foam cheese wedges on their heads at football games. It’s also home base for the Cheese & Burger Society which celebrates the burger and its topping, shares recipes, and provides facts about the cheeses we love to put on them.
The cheeseburger is so awesome that it has its own song. “Cheeseburger in Paradise” was written by Jimmy Buffett after a long time at sea on his first boat. Provisions were running low and night after night, Jimmy kept dreaming about a cheeseburger. He eventually came upon a marina on the island of Tortola that just happened to have a cheeseburger on its bar menu. Today, Jimmy continues to show his love for the food by serving up great burgers at his restaurant, Margaritaville, right in Broadway at the Beach.
Now that you have the facts, isn’t it time you headed out to your favorite Broadway restaurant to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day?
