Falley Allen opened on March 24, and by March 26 the new restaurant was so full of boisterous people it gave Cantina Loco a run for the title of Allentown's Loudest Restaurant. Once the North Carolina versus Kentucky NCAA basketball game ended with one last Tar Heel jumper, the crowd thinned and the sound level dropped to tolerable levels. The folks drawn to 204 All…
