Yiassas. I'm a first generation Greek-American and learned Greek from my grandmother, who lived with us when we were young. My mother's side is from Thessaloniki and, before that, Asia Minor. Look forward to speaking some Greek.
Meet other local people who speak and are interested in practicing modern Greek, discuss the current and on-going economic crises, argue over the resiliency - and superiority - of Greek culture and the modern Greek state, or any other phil-Hellenic interest.
Enjoy some olives, cheese, krasi and pita bread, washed down with 3,000 years of unmatched history (or ouzo if you're into cliches)!
