The son of Arbutus restaurateur Andy DePaola, the Hereford High School graduate played football for Rutgers University.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently gained a few fans in the Arbutus area when they added long snapper Andrew DePaola, son of Arbutus restaurateur Andy DePaola, to their roster. "We're really happy," said the elder DePaola, owner of DePaola's Pub on Sulphur Spring Road. A graduate of Hereford High School, the 25-year-old DePaola played for Rutgers and had tried out for the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints. DePaola had previously played for the new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano, who was head coach at Rutgers before returning to the NFL this year. Andy DePaola said that another son, Vince, plays football at Towson University as a sophomore. A third son also attends Rutgers.

The grand opening for the Arbutus landmark is Friday, April 13.
Darkened since mid-2011, the former Sulphur Spring Inn-an Arbutus landmark on the 1400 block of Sulphur Spring Road-has quietly resumed operation in advance of its grand opening as DePaola's Pub on April 13. Owner Andy DePaola said the pub will offer a full menu for patrons, and a large room off the main bar is being renovated into a wine bar and tasting room featuring products from Maryland vineyards. DePaola has spent several months renovating the establishment. "We got a lot done, but we have a lot to do yet," he said. Without any fanfare, DePaola's Pub opened April 6 to allow Chef Patrick and the staff the opportunity to become familiar with the facilities and working together as a team before the grand opening.
