SOLD OUT

Exodus 20:12 states, "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you". No doubt, I'll always love and honor my Mamma even in death!! Rip Agnes Virginia Holmes Howard! I love you!


Returning a second time to the 5th Annual Two Fish 🔻 Five Loaves Mother's Day Celebration, held at the Clinton Manor Banquets, Sunday, May 14, 2017, with two and half years passing of my Mother, was somewhat bitter sweet; however it was the perfect place to celebrate with Owner/Chef, Pastor Kevin Smallwood; Host, Liz Black, Doctor Bob Lee and All and sold out seats!

Two bus loads from Brooklyn and Bronx, New York undoubtedly filled one side of the entire banquet hall, Tables 1-17, whose combined total purchased sales of 120 Tickets. Nonetheless, often time you, just can't please everyone, especially when one claims her occupation is in heath care. Finding herself to be the most critical:


"There was settlement in my Sprite drink. Rice was cooked too hard. Baked chicken not good. However, the fried chicken is good. I also think the food should be labeled because you never know who may have food allergies" -Karin (health care profession)
On the other hand: "It's wonderful. Delicious food. Greens are slamming. The best Mother's Day ever". -Michelle. "I had a great time. The food is off the chain". -Lola. "I had a wonderful time. The food is drink is great".  -Vatrica. "Awesome". -Gerald

"It's my first time. I absolutely love it. I have no complaints. Food was delicious. The music fantastic. Very friendly environment (seated well). I can't wait to come back again". -Brenda Holmes. "I enjoyed myself very much. If it's God's will and willing, I'll join with my friend next yer and bring other people". -Fernamde


More to the point, I appreciate the warm greeting from Pastor Kevin Smallwood with a cheerful "Hello" and a friendly and pleasant staff to everybody, as well as crossing paths with old friends. Soulful soul food and Oh Snap, I didn't hold my mule... the dance floor rocked and kicked-off with... you guessed it... "the electric slide!"... Who could resist? I too enjoyed the delicious food and setting. The fried whiting fish, hands down, is my all time preferred choice. The Lawery, Johnsons, James and Money Families were in the house, seated alongside my son and I and thought the "line dance was running good".


Vendors were present, such as Khansia's, located in Eastern Pennsylvania captured my full attention with the "perfect sampler" and not your typical banana pudding; inspired by her love of dessert that seemed really hard to find. The concept and idea of Khansia's is to create a convenient way to enjoy banana pudding on-the-go, in one convenient package, stored within ice cream containers.


It was so amazing to witness the free samples literately fly off the table. "What do you think, I asked Loretta, a very interesting patron. "It's delicious and not too sweet...perfect", she replied. Of course, I cast my ballet. My favorite: "Lover's Lane", the spot-on combination of strawberry and banana. #lickedbowls

TWO FISH AND FIVE LOAVES NO DOUBT BRING YOU ALL OF THE DELIGHTS OF CLASSIC SOUL FOOD. THEY'VE CREATED DELICIOUS, MOUTH-WATERING, SATISFYING SOUL FOOD CUISINE:
  • Started around the joy of family gatherings, with a little boy learning how to fry fish under the loving and watchful eye of his grandmother, none other than beloved, Pastor Kevin Smallwood.
  • Opened its first restaurant November 1999 Plainfield NJ. At the start of business they were a take-out only style restaurant. But over the years grew into one of the most well know catering companies in the Tri-state area. 
  • Catered all types of celebrations from as far New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut to Virginia; specializing in southern cuisine, another known as "soul food" yet, not limited to just soul food cuisine. Their most popular dishes are: Fried Whiting, Macaroni and Cheese, Potato Salad, Oxtails, and their Coconut Pineapple Cake. Mm mm... I'm hungry, lol. "It is a buffet style event filled with all of their fan favorite dishes".
  • Proud to have catered to numerous celebrities, including P. Diddy, Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Patti Lebelle, Fantasia, ASAP Rocky and so on.   
  • Mother’s Day celebration begin with an annual Mother’s Day Brunch 2007 at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey. 
Congo Line led By Host Liz Black

Since then their attendance has nearly tripled. I'm so pleased to report Two Fish 🔻 Five Loaves served over 800+ this year alone at Clinton Manor Banquets, Union NJ. That's definitely multiplying two fish and five loaves... "Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude".


And, oh yes... alcohol was sold and served on the premises. Now, okay, I understand what many of you are saying and thinking, "a Pastor...!!" (one point of view) and stating, "well... Jesus turn water into wine" (flip side of the coin)....So I simply ask, without passing judgment, as a servant of the Lord and business owner, "what would you do?" Post your comments and left your voice be heard.


SPECIALIZING IN WEDDINGS, BIRTHDAYS, REUNIONS, CHURCH AND CORPORATE EVENTS let Two Fish 🔻 Five Loaves allow what you will serve to your guests be the last of your worries. They'll take care of making sure that every dish is authentic and every palate is well satisfied!

And in closing, not only did I have the best time, I totally agree with Susan, Two Fish 🔻 Five Loaves Mother's Day Celebration is "getting bigger and better". Payments are now received by way of EventBrite. And Pastor Smallwood is 'just blessed to see how God has multiplied and all having an enjoyable time'... That's another extraordinary Mother's Day wrap!.... See you next year!
