Get thee to the Greek
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.
