over the weekend: it's all greek to me

what do you get what you combine awesome weather with entirely too many amazing food options?

answer:  us on sunday, at the 51st annual greek food festival, soaking up the remnants of summertime... with rapidly expanding waistlines.

i'm not going to lie to you friends, standing in line surveying our lunch options was comparable to a small child's excitement on christmas morning.

there was giddiness over the possibilities, indecision about where to begin, and the overwhelming sense that everything i had ever dreamed of had arrived all in one place.  

i couldn't wait to tear into some dolmathes.


take a look at our day at the festival and see below for your chance to recreate a little gourmet grecian goodness at home.

  1. Looks like you had a great time. I have not been to the Greek festival, but I always love Oktoberfest in Tulsa. A cookbooks sounds exciting!

  2. Oh yum, I'm drooling over all that good food. I've never been to Tassos but it's one place I've definitely wanted to try--I love me some Greek food!

  3. Looks awesome!! Mediterranean is my favorite...probably my Lebanese background ;-)

    Marble Top on 85th and Ward Parkway....excellent. I've also heard the gas station on 75th street right next to the brewery serves up some mean greek food.

  4. I like Tasso's too, also Marble Top hits the spot!


we love hearing from you. please leave a comment:
