“Welcome to Moe’s!”Many thanks to Liz, Guy and Matthew Constantopoulos for the invite to their VIP grand-opening party last Wednesday at Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Among them were Liz’s parents, Fran and Bob Oldeack, Bob’s sister, Wendie Oldeack, Frank and Gerri Silecchia, and Roseann and Ron Browne, to name just a few.
Best of luck in your new venture!
