The birthday party was held at Pastabilities, one of the oldest restaurants in the square. The restaurant has been operational since 1982. The restaurant must have been very happy at having a Hollywood actor in their midst because they posted pictures of the veteran actor, his father, and restaurant staff on their social media.


They presumably posted after the party had concluded, on Sunday after 8p.m. The caption for the picture read, “Richard Gere came in to Pasta’s tonight to celebrate his fathers 100th birthday.”
