• Come enjoy Happy Hour with the “Don,” Saturday, April 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. Don De Luca is the protagonist of Guy J Tirondola’s debut novel, “The Accidental Don: A Man Caught Between Two Identities.”  Guy’s grandfather, Joe Malizia, inspired the creation of Don De Luca. “Papa Joe” owned the legendary Joe’s Spaghetti House which occupied the same building that currently houses the Port Royal Pasta Company, and is the setting for the novel. This debut book-launch event begins a new chapter in Guy’s life, in the very spot where a new chapter began in his grandfather’s life over 60 years ago. A special menu, discounted for book buyers, will be offered that evening. Port Royal Pasta Company is located at 1430 Ribaut Road.
