Get thee to the Greek

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

De­spite con­cerns that the re­cent eco­nomic cri­sis in Greece will af­fect other ar­eas, it’s worth not­ing that, in gen­eral, the coun­try has con­trib­uted a lot of good stuff to our lives. Greece is fa­mous for its philoso­phers (Socrates, Plato, and Jimmy the Greek), its mytho­log­i­cal god­desses (Aphrodite and her twin sis­ter, Eru­dite), its ar­chi­tec­ture (col­umns, mostly, but we need those to hold the roof up), and even for Gre­cian For­mula — which is weird, be­cause that was ac­tu­ally in­vented in White Plains, New York. There are lots of rea­sons to cel­e­brate Greece, which is why the 2010 Santa Fe Greek Fes­ti­val is hap­pen­ing. It takes place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sun­day, June 27, at the Santa Fe Farm­ers Mar­ket, 1607 Paseo de Per­alta. Ad­mis­sion is free, and you can en­joy Greek mu­sic and danc­ing cour­tesy of The Aegean Sounds and the Pala­makia Dancers. Food for sale in­cludes sou­vlaki, gy­ros, Greek cof­fee, and baklava. Plus, there’s a raf­fle. Call Kerry Tra­mon­tanas at 795-3883 for more in­for­ma­tion.
