  • Planning a Halloween Party? Don’t Forget to Invite Buca!

    1108-halloween_social_web_a_blogbanner

    As the end of October rolls around, adults and kids are focused on the fun of Halloween. Kids are dreaming about the sweet treats they will find in their bag after an evening of trick or treating and adults heading to a costume party might be wondering who will win the contests.

    Make a Reservation at Buca today or Order Catering for Your Halloween Party Here!

    Trick or treating with little ones

    When you are deciding on you and your family’s costumes, think about comfort and safety. Wear comfortable shoes and use reflective tape, glow sticks, and flashlights to be sure that your candy cruising crew will be well seen. Opt for face makeup, rather than masks for comfort and unobstructed views. In the days leading up to Halloween, discuss safety measures with your children, such as walking in well-lit areas, crossing the road, and watching for cars.

    Hosting an adult costume party

    You never outgrow the fun of Halloween! Many adults head off to adults only costume parties every Halloween (or say every year “we should really host one of those”). This year is the year to make it happen! Make sure you have plenty of decorations hung, games planned, and that everyone is safely driving home if cocktails are being consumed.

    Ghosts and ghouls can’t live on candy alone

    It doesn’t matter if your guests are little princesses or giant pirates, no party is complete without the right menu. Offer a variety of yummy options with easy and delicious Buca catering. A buffet full of Italian specialties will beckon your guests to grab whatever they like as they enjoy the party. A balanced meal will help prevent crazy blood sugar spikes and crashes from mini-candy binges in little ones and adults need to fuel up for their all night dance party! This Halloween, gather all your friends, family, and neighbors for a tasty treat before heading out to ring doorbells. With Buca catering or Buca To-Go, no one will have to make dinner and everyone can check out each other’s costumes before heading out to search for candy. This is also a great time to get some group pictures while everyone’s freshly attired and not yet running in all directions.

    With a little planning this year can be the best Halloween ever. Let Buca take care of your pre-trick or treating meal or costume party buffet so everyone can focus on having a spooky, fun night together!

  • Don’t Wait! Start Planning Your Holiday Events with Buca Today!

    early bird holiday catering

    Believe it or not, it is time to start planning your holiday events. From sit-down corporate holiday dinners to informal family gatherings, it’s never too early to start organizing all of the details. The size, complexity and type of celebration you are hosting will determine the amount of preparation necessary. For example, a family dinner for 10 people may only take a few hours to plan but a large scale company party will require several weeks. Give yourself ample time to put together the best holiday party this year, start your holiday planning today! Here are a few advantages to early holiday event planning:

    Get Started Early and Order Your Holiday Catering Today!

    Greater Turn Out Rate

    The sooner you send out your invitations or “Save the Date” cards, the higher the probability that your guests will not already have another scheduled event. You should then send the official invitation with RSVP closer to the event date. Be sure the guest/spouse/significant other is included on the invitation.

    Choice of the Best Venues

    Early party planners have the best choices when it comes to selecting their venues, catering, and entertainment companies. The longer you wait to confirm your details, the less likely you will be able to put together the event experience you originally envisioned. No one wants to be stuck hosting their holiday party in the corporate office because all other possible venues were booked. Booking and planning before the holiday rush can also be a better financial choice, since prices often increase along with demand.

    Choice of the Best Food

    Corporate holiday events mean you need to show your team that you recognize and appreciate their hard work. Family holiday events are especially memorable as sometimes it is the only time of the year all family members are together. Both type of events require plentiful portions of food that everyone loves. So skip the stuffy steakhouses and the restaurant around the corner where everyone goes for lunch each week and choose a truly special menu. Buca di Beppo knows how to make every event feel special. From corporate party catering to warm family gatherings in our welcoming restaurants, Buca is the perfect choice for all of your holiday events.

    Before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season sets in, call us to discuss all of your reservation and catering options. Are you wanting to celebrate at your home? We can’t wait to tell you about all of our amazing catering packages. Are you wanting to celebrate at a restaurant where you know the service will never disappoint? You know that our staff is here to serve. Wherever you choose to host your event, choose a team you can trust. At Buca di Beppo, we consistently provide delicious Italian dishes and truly care about your event. Don’t leave something as important as your holiday menu to chance! Contact us today!

  • A Holiday Everyone Can Agree On: National Pasta Day is October 17

    National Pasta Day

    A surge of Italian immigrants to North America in the late 19th century changed our nation’s diet, and now most Americans list “pasta” as one of their favorite foods. Initially prepared with a light toss of tomato sauce and oil, pasta dishes are now only limited by a chef’s creativity…and at Buca, our chefs are pretty creative! If you’re in the mood for a hearty pasta, try the Penne al Forno full of spicy Italian sausage, prosciutto, and pepperoni tossed with ricotta and our homemade marinara sauce, and finally, topped with provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Maybe you want a little spice to warm your taste buds? Our Linguine Frutti di Mare is a spicy seafood lovers dream, with shrimp, baby clams, mussels and calamari in spicy red clam sauce. Looking for something lighter? Our Shrimp Florentine is the perfect mix of garlic shrimp, Roma tomatoes and spinach with linguine in garlic butter sauce. Maybe you (or a picky eater in your group) want to stick with the classics. Well, no one does Fettuccine Alfredo, Ravioli, or Spaghetti with Meatballs better than Buca!

    Make a Reservation Now!

    Whether you prefer your pasta paired with olive oil, vegetables, cheese, fish or meat, at Buca you will find exactly what you are looking for. Our family-style dishes serve between two and five adults, making them perfect for sharing and sampling a variety of our signature creations. Know that whatever pasta dish you choose to treat yourself to on National Pasta Day, it will be cooked to perfection by our trained chefs and served to you by our attentive wait staff.

    Psssst….don’t tell the kids but pasta doesn’t just taste good, it’s good for you, too! Full of vitamin B, folic acid, and niacin, pasta is also low on the glycemic index, meaning it is digested slower than most other carbohydrates, preventing blood sugar spikes and providing a steady supply of energy. Whole wheat pastas contain additional important minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, and manganese.

    At Buca, pasta is our passion. Come to one of our restaurants on October 17 to celebrate National Pasta Day with us or carry-out an order and celebrate at home. Whatever your schedule, let our chefs prepare for you one (or a few) of our specialty or traditional pasta dishes. The only question you need to ask yourself is, “Should I try something new or stick with one of my Buca favorites?”

    b2b-catering

    Book Your Catering Packages Today!

    Most offices have an annual holiday celebration to show appreciation for its employees and allow time for colleagues to mix and mingle outside of work hours. They often take place in the workplace just after office hours. Presentations are frequently given and noteworthy employees are awarded for their performance. If you’re in charge of organizing this year’s holiday office party, here is what you need to do to get started planning the best holiday party your office has ever had.

    Order Catering From Buca for Your Holiday Office Party, Corporate Parties and More!

    Set the date

    You first need to decide when the party will take place, since everything else will be planned around this date. Keep in mind that some dates will be very busy during the holiday season and some days less so. Choosing a midweek day will often give you more options for entertainment, catering, venues, etc.

    Decide the guest list and venue

    You don’t necessarily need a final number just yet but you should have a ballpark number in mind. Are you inviting all employees? Certain departments? Are spouses and families invited? After you have received back your RSVPs you will be able to provide a final head count to your caterer and any other relevant vendors. You also need to finalize the location. The office party will probably be at the office, but where exactly?

    Send “Save the Date” cards

    As soon as you know the date and exact location of the party, it’s time to send “Save the Date” cards to your office mates. Notifying everyone as soon as possible will ensure the best turn out during the busy time of the year.

  • Treat Dad to a Father’s Day Feast

    16-BDB-0759-Fathers-Day_Blog_546x250

    Each June we honor Dads with their own special day to show them how thankful we are for all that they do and have done for us. These amazing men have taught us everything from the intricacies of kite flying, to how to throw the perfect spiral, to the importance of knowing how to change a flat tire. Every year you try to decide the best way to reward him for everything he’s done for you and your family and nothing ever seems right. This year, if another tie or “World’s Best Dad” T-shirt just won’t do, bring Dad to Buca for a Father’s Day feast! Our friendly staff will make him feel like royalty and our heaping portions will feed his king-sized appetite. Does Dad like hearty pasta dishes or authentic oven-baked, bubbling pizzas? Is he a fan of crisp, garden fresh salads and succulent seafood? What about massive half-pound meatballs? No matter what he chooses from our diverse menu, his authentic Italian dish will be prepared fresh with the finest ingredients by the best chefs. He’ll see so many items he loves on the menu that he won’t know which to pick. Thank goodness he will have his family there to share and sample his specially chosen variety of selections.

    Book Your Father’s Day Reservation Here

    Do something different and memorable for Dad this year. Show him how much you love him this Father’s Day by making a reservation online or by calling your local Buca di Beppo restaurant today! Come in and let us treat Dad and your family to a delicious meal while you laugh and share some stories. Let him tell you (again) about the fish that got away and that senior prank that didn’t go so well. Reminisce about your perfect first home run and your not so perfect first crush. Reflect and be thankful for the memories and tell him how much he means to you. While he may have loved a tie, he’s sure to love special time spent with his favorite people much more.

    As an added treat or if you aren’t able to spend Father’s Day with any of the special Dads in your life, a Buca gift card is always appreciated and will never go unused and forgotten in the back of the closet…which can’t be said about the previous years’ ties and T-shirts. Buca gift cards will let Dad grab a taste of Buca whenever he has a craving for tasty Italian dishes and when he uses it, he’ll think of you and remember that you’re his favorite!
