What Day Is Today...

Well of course it is Wednesday but more importantly it is "Prince Spaghetti Day".  This iconic phrase was coined in by the Prince Spaghetti Company and ran for 13 years.  The very famous opening scene was an Italian woman leaning out of a window on Powers Court in the North End of Boston yelling for her son Anthony to come home and eat spaghetti.  So join Anthony and run home tonight for a big bowl of delicious spaghetti and celebrate Wednesday as Prince Spaghetti Day!  Enjoy...
