Well, we had a blast at the Greek festival this year – from Greek wine to gyros, Greek pastries and of course dancing! Something new this year was the addition of a wine lounge in the front courtyard area. They had a tasting menu for both white and red Greek wines for $6 for 4 tastings. Typically that area of the festival is used for sweets and coffee, and judging by the line to get in I would say that the wine lounge was a great idea!
After the wine lounge we walked to the rear of the church to the beer garden, dance floor and to partake in some delicious Greek food. Dessert too of course! We saw this awesome 60′s white Vespa adorned by a Greek flag in the beer garden, I just had to take its picture, it was too perfect.
After dinner we jumped into the fun on the dance floor for a couple of Greek line dances. For the first time I really started to feel like I knew what I was doing! Which for me is a big deal. I usually feel a little lost on the dance floor. Guess I am starting to get the hang of it!
Did you go? Leave me a comment and tell me about your favorite part of the festival. Missed the festival?
