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 Find That Really Unique Gift This Year (Part 1)

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And one of the most challenging.

At no other time of the year do we have to find so many gifts at one time for so many people. Family, friends, children, adults. What's a shopper to do?

All the usual gifts come to mind — perfume, ties, jewelry — and any is likely to please. But this year, why not also add something unexpected, a little something that's unique, that shows you've been thinking out of the box.

You may just start a whole new tradition as family and friends marvel at the thought and creativity you've devoted to your gift-purchasing pursuits. Remember it's the big thought that counts!

Take the tumbler as an example. It may seem like an ordinary piece of drink ware, but it can deliver years of simple pleasures. On cold mornings, the person you've gifted will think of you when sipping a cup of hot joe on the way to work. When summer comes, your unique gift will be keeping iced tea cold while other gifts are stashed away in a closet.

If a tumbler seems like a good choice, here's the big thing to remember: Don't skimp on quality. Invest in a tumbler that comes with a lifetime guarantee. For example, Tervis tumblers sold at Broadway at the Beach's Tervis store, are safe for the microwave and keep beverages colder and hotter longer with minimal condensation. A Tervis Tumbler can be customized to your specifications: decorate it with a sentimental photo, express a heartfelt sentiment, or add a whimsical saying that brings the extra gift of humor.

Do you have folks on your list who love the frivolous, appreciate the over-indulgent, and are not afraid of conspicuous consumption? Oversized tootsie rolls, giant boxes of dots, or enormous peanut butter cups may be the perfect gift for them. Such delights can be found at It'Sugar at Broadway at the Beach where just stepping in the door brings out the kid in you.

Know a little girl or little boy looking for that first cuddly companion? At Build-A-Bear Workshop at Broadway, they specialize in delivering happiness. How unexpected would a customized stuffed animal be under the Christmas tree? From teddy bears, to ninja turtles, to reindeer, you can dress them up and then all you need to do is follow your heart to create the perfect companion for that special someone in your life.

There's nothing like a gift that gets the recipient out of the house and into an exotic world of fun. This Christmas, you can deliver all that with an annual pass to someone's favorite venue.

For example, Ripley's Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach delivers a year full of fun to those who have an annual pass. This is a gift that literally keeps on giving new experiences for 12 full months. An annual pass holder can visit the sharks, and stingrays, and experience new exhibits as many times as desired. Additional pass benefits include discounts at other Ripley's attractions in Myrtle Beach and Gatlinburg (Tenn.), as well as discounts in the aquarium's restaurant and the gift shop.

This year, add a little of the unexpected to the holiday season. Think outside the box and wrap up something unique.

One Meal Your Kids Won’t Want To Skip: Breakfast With Santa

Is getting your kid to actually eat a meal one of your greatest challenges? There's a solution — and a meal that your children will be clamoring to go to.

It's Breakfast with Santa — one of the highlights of the entire year of KIDdom.

This year, the man in the red suit plans to chow down with the little ones at two locations at BATB.

Mark your calendar.

Santa arrives at Ripley's Aquarium on Saturday, December 6 for breakfast seatings at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. In the outside plaza, he'll pass by a 20 foot tree decorated entirely in red, white and blue. Inside the aquarium, kids will be able to help themselves to a sumptuous buffet among the sharks, stingrays, mermaids and other marine life. There's something for everyone: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, Belgian waffles, buttermilk biscuits, fruit salad, orange and apple juices, and coffee. Annual aquarium pass holders and kids 2 to 5 get admission to the aquarium and breakfast for just $4.99 plus tax, while those 6 to 11 pay $9.99 plus tax, and adults are $14.99 plus tax. Reservations are required, so call 916-0888.

After breakfast, check out Ripley's annual Festival of Trees, a display of more than 50 decorated trees placed throughout the aquarium. Each tree represents a different state and is decorated with unique ornaments. The dazzling line-up of state trees includes our own South Carolina tree, which is 18 feet tall and features magnolias, golf balls, sea shell wreaths and stars, as well as ornaments representing the SC Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers.

At 11 a.m. that day, there's a Ripley's-sponsored holiday parade, so plan on being there for that as well!

Rock Around the Christmas Tree with Santa when Hard Rock Cafe hosts its annual Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 6, Saturday, December 13 and Saturday December 20. This event is a hot ticket every year. There is one seating at 9 a.m. on December 6, and two seatings on the 13th and 20th. If you're an early riser, make reservations for the 8 a.m. event, or sleep in and come at 10 a.m.

For $9.95, kids of all ages can graze their way through a full breakfast buffet that includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast sticks, grits, biscuits with gravy, hash brown potatoes, danish, juice and coffee. Once tummies are full, each child can get one photo with Santa, and then enjoy a free activities room on December 13 and 20 with cup cake decorating (compliments of Coccadotts) or race cars (compliments of RIDEMAKERZ, Sparkles and Wonderworks). To make reservations, call 946-0007.

On December 6, 13 and 20, Santa Claus is coming to town!
