How To Get In The Game This Sunday

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!

January Is Be Kind To Food Servers Month

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Dining

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.
