Tonight after work, I’m stopping at home for a glass of vino with Nena before heading to nearby Port Jefferson for the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption’s Greekfest 2005. I went to my first Greekfest four years ago…in fact, it was the first time I ever met Liz and John (a now-married couple who served as co-best man and co-matron of honor at our wedding.
There’s Greek music, Greek dancing, craft vendors, carnival rides and (most importantly) homemade Greek food and pastries.
Me…I’m a gyro fan from way back. But, as I peruse the online menu there are few other things that may tickle my tongue’s fancy.
If memory serves, the wine they serve isn’t Greek…or particularly good. So, beer will probably be the beverage of choice–unless I can get my hands on some ouzo.
