Food demo schedule here:

@NotJrvedivici the tsatziki demo is Friday at 6pm.

The pasta with Sardines and Chard demo looks interesting, as does the Cretan Bread Salad.

Marked on my calendar. Looking forward to it.

Yeah this thing is awesome. A couple years ago they were doing whole lambs on a spit.

The food really kicks a$$.

The Greek dancing demonstrations not so much.

(Greg Caggiano) #5

Never been to it. See it advertised every year. Menu looks really good. They even have Ouzo and Ouzo cocktails. :slight_smile:

(Retired !) #6

Yes, but no Raki…

(Retired !) #7

Greek fest starts tonight!

The grilled octopus was a special.

Moussaka was delish.

Big tent.

Playground for the kiddies

(Greg Caggiano) #10

Trying to get there tomorrow for a bit.


Any good deals or just overpriced stuff? I wanted to go but just got back in town.

I think this is on for tomorrow. Maybe I will try it out

It is reasonable priced for real homestyle Greek food.

The two of us got plenty to eat for $ 25.

If you sneak in around the back of the church and come in by the kiddies rides you can save the $ 2 admission fee.


Nice. Not a good day for a food fest today :confused:

I like your style lol. I remember sneaking into Donavans for years

(Retired !) #14

Nope. :cry:

(Retired !) #15

Yep. Let’s do the math…

$2 x 2 = one chicken or pork souvlaki.

Once again, I failed to make it to the Greek festival. I have lived in the area 23 years and it hasn’t happened yet. My friend and I were torn between walking around there in the rain or him bringing me to Perth Amboy for some authentic Puerto Rican food, and I chose the latter.

Until next year…

Meh. Don’t beat yourself up about it.

There are sometimes second chances in life:


June 29, 30 and July 1

(Greg Caggiano) #18

Yay! Thanks for the heads up.

(Retired !) #19

You’re welcome.

Ocean is not as big, but in some ways that’s an advantage.


We stopped by for a quick dinner last night around 6. They didn’t charge us to enter so that’s was cool. Split an appetizer platter ($13), pork gyro (chunks not shaved) ($8), I got a glass of wine which was tiny but $5 and we took home 2 desserts ($6).

Next year, I would like to try to go with a group and sample more food earlier in the weekend. The bottles of wine were only $20 I think. I recommend it. We have stopped in a few times over the last few years and the food is yummy.
