Hoboken Mutz Fest 2014
Biancamano’s & Vito’s – Best Hoboken Mutz for 2014
An update and a clarification here. A few weeks ago – we mentioned Vito’s in our weekly photo roundup – as winning the “Best Mutz in Hoboken” contest earlier this year. However, that needs to be cleared up – as there were various categories:
- Best Mozzarella – People’s Choice: M&P Biancamano’s
- Best Sandwich – Critic’s Choice: M&P Biancamano’s
- Best Mozzarella – Critic’s Choice: Vito’s
Now if you haven’t eaten lunch yet – what are you going to do now?
2nd Annual Hoboken Mutzfest – January 26th, 2014
Two weekends from now, the Hoboken Family Alliance is hosting the Second Annual Hoboken Mutzfest over at the Hoboken Elks Lodge (10th & Washington). It features some of the more well-known local spots for fresh mozzarella, along with entertainment and prizes.
Hoboken Mutz Fest 2014 at Elks Lodge
Mark your calendars for Mutzfest 2014! The return of the popular face-off between local delis for bragging rights about who really has the best “mutz” in town is back on Sunday, January 26, from 2 pm – 6 pm at the Elk’s Club.
This year’s event promises to be even more fun than the inaugural event with live entertainment, a cannoli-eating contest, a Frank Sinatra karaoke and more.
Lisa’s Deli is not returning, but new entrants Gigi’s Rosticeria and Little Town NJ join Fran’s Deli, Losurdo Bros. and Vito’s in the competition. They expect more than 700 people to sample all the tasty homemade mozzarella. This year, attendees will receive one voting chip with their entrance fee and choose their favorite mozzarella in the People’s Choice Award category. A panel of celebrity judges will pick the winner for Critic’s Choice.
Ticket prices have doubled ($20) since last year, and are available here. Children under 12 are free. No mention if this is a “for profit” event, or if it is for “charity” like last year.
