SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in the new year with family and friends at South Plainfield's Southside Clam Bar & Restaurant.

“Overall, 2017 has been a great year for us and it is all thanks to our customers,” said Southside owner Alexis Broehl, a South Plainfield native who opened the New Market Avenue establishment earlier this year. “When we first open I said ‘the best is yet to come’ and we can’t think of a better way to start 2018 than celebrating with our customers.”

Southside will celebrate 2018 with a special New Year’s Eve package that will include open bar from 8 to 10 p.m. along with appetizers, a set dinner menu, and dessert for $100 per person. Tickets must be purchased in advance and special discounts are available for municipal employees as police, fire, and rescue squad members. After 10 p.m., stick around and ring in the New Year at Southside with a cash bar from 10 p.m. until closing as well as a champagne toast at midnight.

“We know how important it is, especially on New Year’s Eve, for people to not be too far from home,” said Broehl. “We hope that residents will want to celebrate right here, in town, with us.”
