HOBOKEN – Hoboken is a town known not only for baseball and Frank Sinatra but also for its world-famous fresh mozzarella. On Jan. 20, the town’s best will be featured at the First Annual Mutzfest. Visitors can sample and vote for their favorite.
Competing for the top honors are Biancamano, Fran’s Deli, Lisa’s Deli, Losurdo Brothers Bakery and Vito’s Deli. While all of the city’s top delis known for the fresh-made mozzarella were invited to participate, some are unable to attend because of other obligations.
The Mutzfest, which runs from 2 pm – 6 pm at the Elks Club, will also feature a mozzarella-making demonstration, live entertainment and DJing by Angelo Cerrone, desserts, beer, wine and prizes.
The cost to enter is $10 per person and is free for kids 10 and under. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hoboken Family Alliance philanthropic efforts including a portion of proceeds for the Rebuild Hoboken fund and programs for children with special needs.
Tickets are on sale now at participating delis and at www.mutzfest.com.
