La Sicilia debuts new banquet room with live radio broadcast this Friday
● By Steven Hoffman
Two football players who are well known by Philadelphia Eagles fans—linebacker Bryan Braman and retired Pro Bowl linebacker Bill Bergey—will be the guests on “The Rob Maaddi Show,” which will be airing live from La Sicilia restaurant in Oxford on Friday, Nov. 11. The event officially marks the debut of La Sicilia’s new banquet room.
Danielle Mascali, whose family owns La Sicilia, said that the full-service banquet room can accommodate events for up to 150 people, and they are very excited to have it open to the public after a lot of hard work and planning.
Tickets to attend the event Friday night are $30, and can be purchased at the restaurant on Third Street or by calling 610-998-9889. A ticket includes the opportunity to meet the Eagles players and radio hosts, an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner served by La Sicilia, sodas, and coffee. Flickerwood Wine Cellars is catering the cash bar, which will offer beer, wine, and spirits.
The live broadcast, which airs on 610 AM, will begin immediately following the conclusion of a football game. The event is expected to start at 8:30 p.m. and end around midnight. Rob Maaddi and co-host Anthony SanFilippo will be discussing all things football with Braman, a six-year NFL veteran who has played with the Houston Texans and the Philadelphia Eagles, and Bergey, a retired linebacker whose 12-year career in the NFL included four trips to the Pro Bowl and three seasons in which he was named the defensive MVP of the Eagles.
Mascali said that they wanted to do something special to mark the opening of their banquet room, which has long been a goal. There is a definite need for banquet room space in the Oxford area. Mascali said that the banquet room can be rented out for groups of any size up to 150 people.
