Daniel and I have been looking forward to the Greek Festival pretty much since the last one ended. Although I know of others held around the city, this particular one is held on East Avenue at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation.
I was so happy because our friend Lisa was able to come over and join us for the festival. She drove to our apartment, I gave her a brief tour, and then we walked over to East Avenue.
(On a side note: Where does one purchase these? And how did they find one that was Greek?!)
We proceeded to gorge ourselves on Greek food. Lisa and I ordered a gyro sandwich, but they mistakenly gave us loukaniko pitas, which is basically the same thing, but has sausage instead of chopped pieces of meat. I liked it better, and it was easier to eat. Daniel also got a 1/2 chicken dinner, which included rice and salad. I got spanakopita as a side. It was fantastic. We may even go back this weekend.
For dessert, we all had baklava. This is probably one of my all-time favorite desserts (but let’s be real, what isn’t?) and theirs was phenomenal.
I left with a full tummy and a smile on my face. And I was able to experience some Greek music and dance. What more could I want?
