With the start of summer many things in DC are slowing down, but not our Greek Language Meet Up group. We will meet in June and July - before like most Greeks taking off for August - with our next Greek language Meetup on Thursday, June 27t at 7 pm at Yamas Mediterranean Grill in Bethesda. As you may know, Yamas is one of our sponsors and offers 2-1 drinks at the bar so we'll meet there at 7 then grab a table around 7:30 pm.
- The Karpouzi Trio, featuring our friend Spyros Koliavasilis, will play Greek folk dance music at the Fairfax County Summer Concert Series at Ossian Hall Park in Anandale, Virginia on Saturday, June 22nd from 7:30 to 8:30 pm.
- Kellari hosts their monthly Greek wines happy hour starting at 4:30 pm on the first Monday of every month on July 1st. That may change due to the 4th of July. I will likely get there around 6 pm whenever they hold it.
- The next Panorama of Greek Cinema is 'Magic Hour' on Wednesday, August 7th at 8 pm (no work on a July film; they may be skipping the week of 4th of July). It's a tragic comedy set amidst the current crisis in the motherland, and chronicles "a hapless duo that embark on a road-trip odyssey to rival those of the Ancient Greeks." Visit http://www.theavalon.org/programs-events/panorama-of-greek-cinema/ for more info. Folks usually go the the Chevy Chase Lounge/Parthenon Restaurant for a drink around 7 pm.
- Kellari also has their monthly Greek night on the second Friday - July 12th - of every month with food, wines and music starting around 8 pm, downtown on K St. NW. I have Nats tickets that night so will not make it.
See you at Yamas in Bethesda. Ta leme! - Athan
