Thanksgiving is a time filled with family, happiness, memories — and stress!

Before the big day, you can spend hours baking pies, polishing the silverware and planning the menu. On Thanksgiving day, there's putting the turkey in the oven early in the morning, fixing the sides and setting a table with your best china and crystal. The day is nonstop rushing, cooking and worrying over that 20 pound bird. And, after the feast, there are hours of clean up and putting away everything you took out for the big day.

Go Nuts Over National Pecan Month

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Shopping

October through December are peak harvesting months for the delectable pecan, a nut so nutritious and delicious that it's been an essential part of dessert and candy recipes for hundreds of years.

The state of Georgia produces about 100 million pounds of pecans a year. The nut is so beloved that it has its own month-long celebration each November called "National Georgia Pecan Month." Much of Georgia's bountiful crop ends up glazed, candied and in all manner of baked goods from pecan pies to Hummingbird Layer Cakes right here in Myrtle Beach.

Many of the tastiest pecans that come to Myrtle Beach are lovingly merged with ingredients to produce timeless traditional recipes at River Street Sweets at Broadway at the Beach. Born in Savannah, Georgia where the people have a deep affection for pecans, River Street Sweets came to Broadway at the Beach five years ago. It brought an international reputation for creating outstanding sweets and baked goods, as well as its luscious recipe for sweet, buttery pralines made fresh daily using cream, butter, sugar and fresh Georgia pecans.

At the Broadway shop, the best pecans to come out of Georgia are offered in all kinds of ways. Pecans cooked in a salty, slightly sweet glaze, then separated by hand on a large marble slab become mouthwatering Glazed Pecans. There are Sugar & Spice Pecans, Roasted Pecans and Chocolate Pecans. Fluffy nougat is melded with warm, creamy caramel, then topped with fresh pecan pieces to produce pecan divinities and log rolls that simply melt in your mouth.

It's hard to resist getting these special snacks by the pound for yourself. But don't forget that the shop also offers gourmet nut gifts. Combo tins make great gifts for the special people in your life. And you'll put a smile on the face of any hostess when your arrive at a holiday party with a gift from River Street Sweets.

Incredible sweets made from timeless recipes owe their popularity to the humble pecan. But for pecan lovers and health enthusiasts, the pecan brings so much more to the party than flavor and crunch.

Pecans have antioxidant properties said to protect the body from diseases. They have even been found to help lower cholesterol. A good source of protein and fiber, pecans are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium and the B vitamins — and they are rich in potassium and phosphorus.

Celebrate National Georgia Pecan Month the way those in Savannah do. Stop by River Street Sweets at Broadway at the Beach and sample the delicious confections created with the help of the great Georgia pecan.

The Holidays Call For Special Wines. You'll Find Them At Broadway!

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Shopping

The holidays are fast approaching.

When we gather together, it can be a treat to share a bottle of special wine as an aperitif, or a complement to a dinner of hearty holiday foods. Or, when a day of celebrating is over and it's time for some quiet reflection, it's sometimes nice to end the day by sipping a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire.

As you do your holiday wine shopping this year, be sure to check out the small and welcoming wineries at Broadway at the Beach where you may be pleasantly surprised to discover some of the most extraordinary wines anywhere.

At Boardwalk Winery near Landry's, you can find traditional red and white wines. But what makes this micro winery special is its fruit-blend wines, from dry to sweet. Boardwalk Winery says their libations can take your mind and tastebuds back to warm and sunny days on the beach, delivering "a vacation in a bottle." Sipping a glass, it's easy to be transported by varieties with labels like Endless Summer, a half and half blend of mango and peach that's available in sweet, medium or semi-dry. If you're favorite vacation time is during the crisp and cool days of fall, drop in for a tasting of Boardwalk's rich Blackberry wine with the bold taste of fresh berries or limited-edition seasonal wines like their deep blue Elderberry.

At this small, gourmet winery, you can also find unique wine-related gifts for the wine lovers in the family. The gift shop offers Carolina handmade pottery, custom-designed clothing, wine accessories, and more. And for the gourmet, Boardwalk has salsas, dressings, jams, jellies, marinades, and chutneys.

Coastal Carolina Winery on the South side of Broadway is dedicated to the notion that a good bottle of wine will enhance any meal with friends or family. This is where the emphasis is on the fun of exploring and discovering wines that speak to your individual tastebuds. You can try just one wine or take part in a wine tasting with their knowledgeable staff.

Many different, award-winning wines with unique styles and characters are offered. Whites and red, blushes and ports, and even fruit wines are hand-crafted and bottled with Coastal's distinctive labels. Whether you need a special bottle for a romantic evening or just want a nice wine to enjoy when you kick back and relax, you can find it here.

Not in town? Both our wineries ship, but some restrictions do apply. Shipping information can be found on the Boardwalk Winery and Coastal Carolina Winery websites.
