The event consisted of prizes, a wheel of fortune, food specials and more for anyone who came.

“My parents started the business… what we’re doing obviously works so we don’t reinvent the wheel everyday,” said Michael Pavis, owner of the restaurant.

When asked about their customers, Pavis said, “25 years ago this place was filled with college students…it’s not now, we don’t get a lot of college students.”

“We’re on the other side of the world… we still have our backbone (parents, little kids, families), not so much the college students anymore.”
