To get you ready, I tried to find a fitting song (besides Rocky). I don’t know of any songs about tavli, but here is something close about chess (warning: blast from the past, so watch out). I think they should make a song: One Night in Athens! (about tavli). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5kwsbcWG5k
Lastly, How do you get to Carnegie Hall?...PRACTICE!
Yia sas paidia! This group is for those of use who would like to enjoy the camaraderie of their fellow Greeks & Greek-Americans. Let's create our own parea in Austin. Events will be low-key opportunities to hang out, make new friends, and have people to speak Greek to for those who wish to. Frappes, tavli, and ouzo may be involved. ;)
And by the way, I do not know why or how Meetup keeps adding "Greek singles" and "Greek party" to the group topics. I keep deleting it, it keeps reappearing - that is not what this group is about, just fyi.
