OPA!

It is Greek Festival weekend at Sts. Constantine and Helen
Greek Orthodox Cathedral just down the street
from our house. This is the 35th Annual Festival, and
it is a big deal here in the Capitol of the Commonwealth.
There were seventeen dance groups scheduled for
this evening. And a lot of impromptu dancing around
the stage and in the lines waiting for foods.
My muzzer and Dad did not pawticipate, though they
enjoyed the dancing and the costumes.
This is the line for takeout food.
There are traffic policemen directing the traffic
on our part of Cary Street Rd., and lots of
folks are trolling for parking.
Fortunately, we live close enough to walk.
Here is ONE of the food tents.
There were four lines, and eight
checkout people!

And there were smaller tents for specialties like
Gyros and Limonata and seafood
Muzzer had Souvlaki
and Rice Pilaf
And a wonderful salad.
Dad had Tiropita,
Spanakopita
Yahni
Dolmadi
Pilaf
A Shrimp Skewer
And a salad.

They brought home Baklava, Ergolavi, Greek donuts,
Galaktoboureko*
and some wonderful fennel flavored butter cookies.

YUM.

We got leftovers, and now I know that I would
enjoy a trip to the Greek Isles.

Tomorrow.
A trip to Five Guys Hamburger
in Honor of My Pal Joey.
