Happy Monday, Foodie Friends!
There are some very fun, very yummy events coming up this weekend that I absolutely have to share. What better way to get through the week (especially a rainy Monday) than to daydream about some weekend fun?
The first event is The Atlanta Greek Festival...
October 4- October 7
5pm - 10pm Thursday
11am - 11pm Friday & Saturday
11am - 7pm Sunday
Greek Orthodox Cathedral
2500 Clairmont Road, N.E.
Atlanta, Georgia 30329
Exit #91 off I-85
(On Clairmont Rd. between Briarcliff Rd. and LaVista Rd.)
Tickets are only $5 and you can get $1 off if you purchase online here. (Tickets are for admission only, food items and other shopping are for sale.)
I have said many of times, I was definitely Greek in a former life because I just LOVE Greek food. It's flavorful and hearty and just down right YUMMY! This event is packed with Greek Culture-- Food, dancing, more food and more dancing! I love this event because it's not as over crowded as some. You can browse some of the vendors, buy some food then sit and watch some of the festivities. The food is worth going alone, but if you have the courage you should join one of the many dancing circles that pop up while you are there. OPA!
The next event is the famous Taste of Atlanta...
October 6- October 7
Saturday, October 6: 11am - 6pm
Sunday, October 7: 11am - 6pm
Tech Square in Midtown Atlanta (5th Street from Techwood to West Peachtree Street and Spring Street from Biltmore Place to Armstead Avenue.)
$25 for general admission (includes 10 taste tickets. Extra "taste tickets" can be purchased 10 for $10 or 20 for $20)
If you have never been to the the Taste, you should definitely go. It's a bit crowded and a tad overwhelming, but it is soooo much fun to taste food from so many different vendors. There is a whole list of over 80 great restaurants and other eatery's that will be present. You will find that your taste tickets will go quickly, but you can always get more. There are also several demonstrations and other fun things going on. Check out the schedule and have a great time!
