If you're like my family, hosting others is a thing.  It's an important part of the holiday season.  When you have Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and then New Year's Eve all within a week, the preparation is a bit exhausting.

Now, granted, Christmas Eve is more of a family affair.  While New Year's Eve is less about family and more for a big celebration.  Usually, in a non-covid year, you would call up friends, get a sitter, and head out the door for a night of fun.  This year seems a little different.  People are definitely more cautious.   So what to do?  Even if you have a small gathering at the house takes some preparation.  What's the biggest undertaking?  Food.

You just spent last Friday cooking up a storm.

You don't want to do that again.  So, a brand new, local deli is ready to help you out.

Anthony's From Brooklyn wants to cater your New Year's Eve event.

Anthony's just opened before the holidays.

They have a location right here in Toms River.

So, what's on the menu.  Caution.  This will make you hungry.  Trays and trays of Italian goodness.

You can't have a party without a tray of Antipasto.  Of course, if grab and go is more your thing, they are offering a specialty sandwich platter, and even eggplant Mozzarella.

Work smarter and not harder when it comes to your holiday gathering.  New, local businesses want to do it for you.

We're definitely excited to bring in the new year.  Just do it with a full belly, that you don't have to prepare.
