Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

The temperature isn't the only thing FALLing in Myrtle Beach this time of year, because we're FALLing back in love with our top five fall favorites at Broadway at the Beach!

Number 5: The Season of Soup!

There's nothing quite like dipping into a bowl of savory soup as the temperatures dip into a fall like Fahrenheit along the Carolina coast! From the housemade chili of Wahlburgers, to the coastal creations of gumbo, clam chowder and she crab soup of Landry's Seafood House to the baked onion soup of Liberty Brewery & Grill, you are sure to warm up any cool night at Broadway!

Number 4: Pick Your Pumpkin

Pumpkin, the quintessential flavor of fall is the taste that brings memories of Autumns past and the anticipation of that undeniably delicious pie on Thanksgiving! At Broadway at the Beach, there are plenty of pumpkin treats to choose from! Some of our favorites include the pumpkin spice nuggets and pretzels of Auntie Anne's. The smell of them baking will entice anyone to walk into their doors and that's exactly what you will want to do because the first five people to walk into Auntie Anne's on Friday, November 10th that mention this blog will receive a free Pumpkin Spice Pretzel! If you're into something on the cool side, a cup or cone of pumpkin cheesecake flavored ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery is the perfect treat and you can never go wrong with any of the pumpkin flavored creations of Starbucks!

Number 3: Holiday Shopping... It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

Now that it's November, it's safe to say, let the holiday shopping begin! At Broadway, you can help Santa cross off his list! Whether it's Pandora jewelry from The Mole Hole, clothing and perfumes from Victoria's Secret or a candle from Yankee Candle, you'll definitely find something for the most accessorized member of the family.If it's a sports lover you're shopping for, almost anything at Sports Fanatics and Man Cave Store will work. From young to not-so young, you can stuff the stockings and wrap up this holiday shopping season at Broadway!

Number 2: Favorite Fall Fashions

With the temperature trending downward, now is the perfect time to layer up with beautiful fall fashions! Gemini Boutique is the perfect stop to grab a fall blouse and a new pair of shoes! Need to accessorize your November ensembles? Bijuju is the place to peruse through earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bags, purses, scarves and more!

Number 1: Let The Show Begin!

Not that we are trying to hurry up the season of autumn colors, pumpkin spice specialties and turkey fixins, but the number one thing on our fall favorites countdown is the official beginning of the Holiday season! And what better way to get in the Christmas spirit than the Holiday show at Legends in Concert? This year's Christmas lineup includes the classic tributes to Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, The Blues Brothers, Rod Stewart and Nat King Cole! Grab some popcorn, and sit back and let the show & holiday season begin!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Let’s Eat! Carmel Apple Creations At Kilwins

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Dining

We have all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." However, when you see, smell and taste the carmel apples of Kilwins at Broadway at the Beach, you (regardless if you're a doctor or not) won't be able to stay away!

We recently took a tasty course in carmel apple making and we enjoyed every sight and bite of our edible education and we're sharing it with you!

Step one: It isn't just any apple!

There's no mistaking the crisp and tasty tartness of the Granny Smith apple and when it comes to Kilwins' carmel apples, perfection is key!

Each apple receives a stick, the essential tool to adequately enjoy the dipped delight!

Step two: Create the carmel!

The blanket of hot, smooth carmel for each apple begins in a deep copper kettle where cream powder is added to hot water, followed by sugars, salt and butters all stirred and wire whisked until everything is completely dissolved. From this point, the stove is turned on high and Paige (our Carmel apple chef extraordinaire) starts the constant stirring process! Once the batch begins to boil, then comes the stream of evaporated milk, but not added too quickly so as not to disrupt the boiling. Again, Paige continues to stir to ensure the sweet liquid treat doesn't burn on the side of the kettle!

This step takes a while, giving us a perfect reason to sample some Kilwins fudge and ice cream! (Try the New Orleans Praline Pecan… yum!)

Now back to the carmel apples. Once the carmel creation is near completion, the stove is turned off, but the stirring keeps going to allow for cooling. Once a cooler temperature is reached, vanilla is added and stirred and voila, the carmel is now ready for the dipping!

It's the main event we have been patiently waiting for. Okay, not that patient because we did sneak a sample (or two) while watching Paige do all of the work!

Step Three: Let the dipping begin!

Each apple is then dipped, and completely submerged into the sweet, shiny and oh so delicious carmel. The first of the dipped apples were for the simple carmel apple lovers! But for the other tasty treat lovers, there are the toppings!

Just when you thought carmel apples couldn't get any better, Paige starts to dip the rest of the carmel apples in chopped peanuts and pecans! And we're not talking about a few pieces of peanuts and pecans, the whole apple is covered in the nutty goodness! Click here to see how it is done!

Once dipped and coated, each apple is placed on parchment paper to set. As a spectator, the waiting to set process may be the most difficult to endure as the magnificent masterpieces of Kilwins carmel apples are just waiting for our impatient palettes to partake! Okay, so the wait isn't that long. But when you have smelled the heavenly scents of fresh fudge, cool ice cream and perused through the other sweet treats of Kilwins, we were finally ready to taste! It was certainly worth the wait!

The Kilwins carmel apple creations don't just stop with peanuts and pecans, they also make other tasty varieties of the carmel apple, including Turtle Carmel Apple, M&M Carmel Apple, Stripped Carmel Apple (it includes chocolate… oh yeah), Apple Pie Carmel Apple, Sea Salt Carmel Apple, and the list goes on!

So as our Kilwins visit came to an end, we were left sugared, sweetened and abundantly satisfied! Now we have just one more question for our Broadway visitors, How about them apples?

Let’s Eat, Drink & Play at Dave & Buster’s!

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Dining

It's the place for thrilling games, great food and good times all under one roof! And on this visit, we sipped, dipped and enjoyed every bite of our lunch at Dave & Buster's! From shareables, crafted cocktails and brews, soups, salads, surf & turf, burgers, delicious dinners and delectable desserts, the huge menu offers a wide variety of taste bud tempting delights! Want to see for yourself, click here for their menu.

While our party of three was surfing through the menu, we decided to go ahead and dive into a delicious appetizer, but not just any appetizer, their Triple Play featuring classic buffalo wings, crispy mozzarella sticks and seasoned tots with warm queso, bacon and green onions on top! It may have been a triple play, but we only needed one word to describe it, AWESOME!!!

Now it's on to our individual orders! As mentioned, there is a plethora of choices to choose from and somehow, we narrowed it down to the South Philly Burger, the Bang Bang Chicken with Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles and Mediterranean Hummus! You can say each of us were craving flavors from across the world, and Dave & Buster's deliciously delivered!

First, taking us to the south streets of that Pennsylvania town, the half-pound South Philly Burger is piled high with thinly sliced steak, and then topped with peppers, onions, mushrooms and melted American cheese on a toasted brioche bun. Honestly, need we say more? Actually, we do because we cannot forget about the half a pound of crispy seasoned French Fries that went along with it!

Now off to Thailand. Imagine this: tender crispy boneless chicken tossed in a mouthwatering Bang Bang sauce served on a bed of noodles and then tossed with Asian vegetable and peanut sauce! You don't need to imagine it, you just need to try it because we are so glad we did! For the spicy lovers that want to kick it up a notch, you can even request some Siracha sauce to top it off. However, we weren't that brave, but with or without the extra heat, for lunch or dinner this dish is a must try!

Now for our third lunch companion, their choice took us overseas with Dave & Buster's Mediterranean Hummus. The classic favorite served with Greek tzatziki dip, warm grilled pita bread and even some fresh veggies for dipping! A cooler dish to round out our Dave & Buster's lunch treat!

Great eats, cold drinks, games for the watching and games for the playing, what could be better than that for our mid-day getaway? Answer: Enjoying them under one roof on The Avenue at Dave & Buster's all at Broadway at the Beach!

Let’s Eat! Wahlburgers Wows

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Dining

It's a little hip, a little homemade, a little Hollywood and it's the perfect place to go when you're hungry! Our recent mid-day getaway had us enjoying lunch with friends at Wahlburgers at Broadway at the Beach!

Although Wahlburgers offers a great grab and go service, we had time to sit, eat and enjoy and that is exactly what we did!

As we sipped on ice cold Teas and Cokes, our lunch date of three perused through the menu.

Although it was a little difficult to narrow down our taste buds when skimming over the Thanksgiving Day Sandwich, Mom's Sloppy Joe, Crispy Haddock Sandwich and their signature house burgers, but we finally made our minds up with the Fiesta Burger, a Cobb Salad and House Salad... and then an order of sweet potato tots (to share)!

The Fiesta Burger is a carefully crafted 1/2 lb. burger with house made southern spice, topped with jalapenos, lettuce, pepper jack cheese, house made salsa, chipotle mayo and pickles. One word, delicious! Tasty Tip: wrap the paper around it so you don't miss any of the juicy flavor!

And there is nothing skimpy about their salads, as the fresh toppings of seared chicken, roasted cherry tomatoes, bacon, crumbled blue cheese and avocado filled the cobb salad and our other lunch date opted for a house salad topped with a Turkey burger!

And then there were tots, oh those warm, delicious sweet potato tots! Trust us, you will not be able to eat just one!

As we were finishing up, our server tempted us with the sweet treats of Wahlburgers including house made frappes and even a Grilled Banana Fluffanutta (peanut butter, fresh banana, fluff and Nutella), however, we couldn't fit one more bite into our bellies!

We may just have to start with dessert on our next visit to Wahlburgers!
