Celebrate Easter at Broadway at the Beach

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail to Myrtle Beach.

Like many visitors and locals, our favorite floppy-eared rabbit is heading to Broadway at the Beach to celebrate Easter.

While in town, the big bunny's itinerary calls for him to chomp down on some delicious food and visit with boys and girls at two outstanding locations on Saturday, April 4.

Ripley's Aquarium will welcome kids of all ages to a morning of fun with the Easter Rabbit and Ripley's own mascot, Sharkee, on April 4. For $19.95, there's a scrumptious breakfast buffet (with your choice of two seatings at 8 a.m. or 9:30 a.m.). There will be giveaways during the event and an opportunity to have your picture taken with Mr. Bunny! Reservations are required, so call 843-916-0888 ext. 3272.

If your family just loves to be edu-tained, head over to the upside down house known as WonderWorks on Saturday. Beginning at 8 a.m., Professor Wonder is hosting an egg hunt for kids ages 1 to 12. Will you be lucky enough to find the Wonder Egg or win a prize? Don't miss the opportunity to get a discount on admission to this amusement park for the mind. The activities are free, but you're asked to register online.

Mr. Bunny's arrival is a sure sign of Spring, and we're celebrating all weekend with extended shopping hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on April 3, 4 and 5.

And, no celebration would be complete without a Fireworks Extravaganza. So join us at 9 p.m. on Saturday night and watch the sky light up!

Get In On The Oscar Excitement

It's almost red carpet time — that special time of year when movies dominate the news, and excitement is in the air!

For true movie buffs, February means scrutinizing performances, analyzing story lines and debating which actor or director did the best job. For many, the impulse to see all of the movies nominated for "Best Film" approaches a fever pitch.

After all, how can you watch the 87th Academy Awards and judge the best of the best if you haven't seen the nominees for yourself?

Luckily, half of the 8 nominees for best picture are currently playing at the Carmike Cinema—Broadway 17. American Sniper, Birdman, Selma and The Theory of Everything are all still available for viewing.

Catch a film that may be this year's winner, and get in on the Oscar excitement!

How To Make This Valentine’s Day Memorable

February 14 is Valentine's Day, and this year it falls on a Saturday. Why not celebrate the entire day with a little star-gazing, followed by a romantic dinner and a show?

An intriguing first stop on any memory-making tour is the Hollywood Wax Museum. Where else can you gaze at an extraordinary galaxy of stars indoors?

Be sure to get lots of snapshots of you and your sweetheart with other famous Tinsel-town lovebirds. It's the best opportunity in Myrtle Beach to snuggle up close to your favorite romantic A-lister!

As you walk among the famous figures, recall some of the sentimental films that starred your favorite actors. You're sure to be in a romantic mood after recounting amorous story lines as you walk hand in hand.

When it's time for dinner, head right across the street to Broadway at the Beach where you'll find more than 20 different restaurants. Check out Landry's for a quiet seafood dinner or Amici's for some saucy Italian fare. From Angus sirloin and ribs at Liberty Brewery & Grill to a Japanese steakhouse, to a free glass of champagne with dinner at Good Time Charley's or Rooster's Restaurant & Bar, to the special "Splash of Love" evening at Ripley's Aquarium, there's lots to choose from. No matter what kind of food or atmosphere your sweetheart likes, you'll find it at Broadway.

Follow up dinner for two with a live show at Legends In Concert or The Palace. Or take in the latest flick at the Carmike 17.

And that's how you make a Valentine's Day memorable.

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!
