A "Plug" was the salvation for late night hunger. There was always several loaves of bread, peanut butter and a jar of mayonnaise left out after the kitchen was closed at night. You could toast the bread, then add the peanut butter and mayo for a nice warm late night snack.
Athletes would visit our House and party on occasion. Thank goodness for that.

Bert Wilder and Incident at the Broiler

One night after partying several of us and our dates were sitting at the counter at The Broiler on Hillsborough St. One of the State football players came in drunk, and began flirting and pawing our dates.  As we were pondering how to deal with the situation, here comes Bert, all 6-4  260 lbs.,  into the restaurant with a couple other guys. We knew Bert as he frequented the SigEp house sometimes. I called Bert over and told him of the situation. He went over to the football player, who was sitting on a stool with his arms around one our dates......picked him up from the stool, carried him over and threw him into a booth and said, "Don't you move until I tell you!"

On Hillsborough St., this is the alley time forgot. A museum quality preservation of an earlier, simpler age of bowling. This is how we used to bowl. Virginal. Untouched. Pristine vintage beauty clad in Howard-Johnson's-Blue. Scoring is still manual, and many of the bowling balls are from the 60's and 70's, surprisingly well preserved for their age.

AMEDEO’S Italian Restaurant...3905 Western Blvd.
A Raleigh dining tradition since 1963
Raleigh is a long way from Reading, PA, yet Amedeo "Dick" DeAngelis made the trek to play football for the Wolfpack in 1954, playing on scholarship. He missed "home cooking" and got the idea of opening a small Italian restaurant featuring some of his mother's and grandmother's homemade Italian recipes. In 1963 he opened the restaurant which seated 12. Over the years, they have grown and can now seat over 200. Many celebrities have visited Amedeo's over the years. The main theme of the restaurant is Wolfpack in every way imaginable.

John and Jean Carbone opened their first restaurant, the Villa Capri,in January 1958 on Hillsborough Street. In 1967, they moved to the Ridgewood Shopping Center until 1984. Their daughter, Maria, and her husband, Michael, partnered with Maria's parents to create Casa Carbone in Oak Park Shopping Center on Glenwood Avenue. John's family is from Naples, Italy... Jean's is from Palermo, Sicily.

My first date with Katie was the Villa Capri. I was so cool I used parmesan cheese to sweeten my tea.

I remember eating at the Villa Capri with Gay, and I had just lifted up a cup of coffee. At the same time, we experienced a rare earthquake. My coffee spilled all over everything.  I can't remember another tremor here since. That must have been around circa 1975.
