Casale’s Halfway Club in spotlight

The Halfway Club, the Italian joint run by the Casale family on Fourth Street, will soon be featured on the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives program on the Food Network. Inez “Mama” Casale hung up on the program’s producer when she got the first call, but fortunately the producer persisted. The Casales have operated the restaurant, beloved by long-time residents, since 1937.
