Beyond Skin Deep: BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy In Motion Comes To Broadway At The Beach

This season, a new exhibition at Broadway at the Beach will go beyond the surface and will take you deeper than just skin deep.

Now through September 29th, BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion will be on display in Heroes Harbor. This eye-opening exhibition is comprised of actual real life bodies and organs.

Bodies? Yes. Gruesome? No.

By presenting in an artful, compelling and dignified environment, guests will connect with the human artifacts on a personal level that will help them to better understand their own bodies. The exhibit includes more than 100 specimens including organs and full bodies.

Before this exhibition, one may only be allowed to go "under the skin" to this extent by becoming a doctor or scientist.

How?

The exhibit will showcase specimens preserved through a polymer impregnation process that replaces fluids with polymers that prevent decay and decomposition.

BODIES HUMAN is appropriate for all ages with three supplemental guides available for families, sixth through eighth graders and high school students.

So this summer, you can not only go into the deep blue at Ripley's Aquarium or into the unknown of space at WonderWorks, you can also go further within at the new BODIES HUMAN: Anatomy in Motion at Broadway at the Beach!

Sage, pickle, emerald, seaweed, mint, lime, chartreuse and seafoam… no, it's not some weird recipe that cures any winter ailment, it's just a few of the shades of green you may want to wear during St. Patrick's Day weekend at Broadway at the Beach! From green drinks and eats to sharks and shamrocks to lacing up the running shoes with fellow leprechauns, there are many ways to celebrate the green weekend with us!

But first, history…

A quick google search tells us that Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick dates back to the 17th century and is a cultural and religious celebration held every year on March 17th in celebration of the holiday's namesake, the foremost patron saint of Ireland!

From Ireland to Broadway…

Although you are encouraged to don your favorite shade of green, you don't need the luck of the Irish to enjoy all of the festivities! Here's a quick three day Broadway breakdown of how you can celebrate the holiday all in one place!

Friday:

Ready, Set… Go Green!

Before you enjoy all the tasty treats and sweet sips, you can kick off the weekend as you race around Broadway during the Shamrock-N-Roll 5K Run and Celebration on Friday, March 15th! The race begins at 6pm with the after party on The Avenue featuring live music by Backfire! For more information on the race and how to register, click here.

But of course, the fun and festivities don't stop there!

You can also drink up some of those green brews and enjoy live entertainment at several places at Broadway including Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and Liberty Brewery & Grill all day!

If the pre-spring breeze is more your thing, you can enjoy the official Broadway St. Patrick's Day Celebration Street Party outside on The Avenue featuring live music from The Kevin Nichols Band from 3pm – 7pm. Of course, you can get your fill of green beer and taste some Irish treats while you take in the sounds of live music!

Mission: Valentine’s Day Guy Gifts

Mission: Valentine's Day Guy Gifts

Place: Broadway at the Beach

Date: February 14th

(Que the Mission Impossible Theme Song)

Do you choose to accept this mission?

Okay… maybe it doesn't take the stunts of the Tom Cruise blockbusters to shop for this year's Valentine gift for your favorite guy, but when it comes to the day of love, the guys in our lives aren't always the easiest to shop for! Broadway at the Beach wants to help change that and we've put together a list of ideas sure to help you find something perfect for your favorite guy this Valentine's Day!

Forget the flowers… get him food!

Whether it's a bouquet of Beef Jerky that you make from the Beef Jerky Store or a bucket of freshly popped popcorn of his favorite flavors from Sweet South Popcorn Company or even a box of chocolates from any one of Broadway's sweet stops (River Street Sweets, Wee R Sweetz or Kilwins), the way to his heart may be through his stomach!

Serve up some shady & sporty style!

There are a plethora of shops to explore and pick up something for that man of yours at Broadway. For the sports fanatics, it doesn't get much better than a store actually called Sports Fanatics where you can pick up his favorite team's gear. From collegiate to the pros from the courts, the diamond and fields, you are sure to find something that will have him cheering. Sports not his thing? Why not add some designer to his wardrobe with the help of Sunglass Hut where you can pick up the perfect pair of shades including Ray-Ban, Costa and Oakley!

Order Some Grub & Pour On The Love!

We have already mentioned the gifts from some of Broadway's light bite eateries, but when it comes to enjoying a Valentine's night out, a great meal and a cold brew will get you some extra Valentine's points! From burgers, international cuisine, seafood or southern, Broadway has it all. Pull up a seat at American Tap House, The Grumpy Monk or Liberty Brewery & Grill and treat him to a seasonal sip of his favorite brew. Get your grub on by firing up the hibachi at Yamato's Japanese Steakhouse or slow down and enjoy the sweet and savory southern cooking of Paula Deen's Family Kitchen! For a complete list of places to dine with your Valentine at Broadway, click here!

So there's your Guy's Valentine's Gift Guide mission from Broadway, do you choose to accept it?

Happy Valentine's Day from Broadway at the Beach!
