How our spaghetti came to be

06/11/2014 | 

Over the years, our menu has remained static.  Our unofficial motto has always been “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, and just about every item on our menu has its share of fans.  The spaghetti is one of the most popular items on our menu, and the source of one of Floye’s favorite food stories.  It is […]

N&O: City Council Debates Moore Square Redo Yes, there are other community centers in dire need of renovation. But we’ve been discussing renovating Moore Square for years.
