However, the cast felt the ire of fans on social media for not wearing face masks.
It all started when Jenni "JWoww" Farley shared a snap on social media of a dinner date with her co-stars, as well as their loved ones.
The event was at The Butcher's Block in New Jersey to celebrate Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's birthday.
The only person in the photo in question donning a mask was Vinny Guadagnino.
