You even get to vote for the best meatballs at this fantastic night out!

Get your tickets before they sell out, then join us from 6 - 9 pm this Thursday, May 3rd, for the 6th annual Jersey Shore Meatball Gala at the South Wall Banquet Facilities on Atlantic Avenue in Wall Township.

At this delicious Meatball Gala chefs from some of the shore's best restaurants bring their best and most unique culinary creations in 'meatball' form. This is a fun, flavorful competition to claim the Meanest Meatball at the Jersey Shore.

Each year Lou and I have the honor of being among the judges, but everyone who comes to eat their way through this evening also gets to vote! Meatballs are judged in categories including The People's Choice, Best in Show, Best Dessert Meatball, Best Non-Meat Meatball, Best Fusion Meatball, Best Traditional Italian Meatball, Most Creative Meatball, and more!

Restaurants and caterers competing this year include Dominick's Pizza, Sweet Tease, Simply Southern, Leggett's, Spring Lake Manor, Catering Wizard, River Bell/River Queen, Esposito's, Jimmy's Cucina, Federici's, Ponte Vecchio, Hincks Turkey Farm, and Brick House Tavern.

This is such a fun evening out to support Wall High School Project Graduation, which is an all night, drug- and alcohol-free event held for Wall High School Seniors on a night when celebrating is often confused with heavy partying.This life-saving event gives grads a fun and safe place to celebrate without driving under the influence.

Tickets for the Meatball Gala are $50 per person in advance or $60 at the door, 21 and older to enter. That includes entertainment, lots of food (especially meatballs, but more!), sides, beer, wine, and dessert. You will be STUFFED and HAPPY because this is really a fantastic night out.
