Skip The Stress & The Mess: Have Thanksgiving Dinner At Broadway

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.

This year, why not skip the mess and the stress and head to Broadway at the Beach for Thanksgiving dinner?

Some of our restaurants will be serving traditional Thanksgiving fare, while others such as Senor Frog's and Yamato will be open and offering full menus of other foods that your family may prefer.

Soup's On! Annual Souper Supper Comes To Broadway at the Beach

Do you love soup?

People have been enjoying the liquid delight since roughly 20,000 B.C., according to historians. In America, the earliest colonists started boiling up the stuff almost as soon as they hit the shores. One hundred years later, the first official Colonial cookbook was assembled with several recipes for soups and bisques.

Soup has proven itself to be a meal with real staying power. We love them all, from chowders and gumbos, to bisques and broth-based soups, to thick, creamy recipes served steaming hot, and fruit-based delights served chilled. We even celebrate soup with festivals and make it the centerpiece of fundraisers.

And if you're a fan of soup, mark your calendar for just such a celebration on Sunday, November 13th, where a plethora of Myrtle Beach's finest varieties of this great liquid food will be served at the 21st Annual Souper Supper at Broadway at the Beach.

From noon to 3 p.m., servers will be ladling out tastings of some of the yummiest soups imaginable. Cool beverages and fresh-baked items by Benjamin's Bakery will also be served, and restaurant-related vendors will be on hand offering some of their best. While dessert lovers will be treated to live demonstrations of cupcake decorating by students from the Academy for Technology & Academics.

This day of soups is guaranteed to delight your tastebuds, while helping to raise funds to support Red Cross efforts to provide Hurricane Matthew relief.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.MyrtleBeachACF.com (adults $12; children 12 and under, $7), and for more details, please visit www.facebook.com/MBACF.

Save the date and join us under the big tent in front of guest services for three hours of souperior deliciousness on Sunday, November 13th!
