DC Greek Language Meetup
Γιασσας! After starting the year with some great παρέα in the Old Dominion State we return to the District for our Thursday, February 22nd at 7:00 pm, Greek Lanuage MeetUp. This month we will MeetUp at The Parthenon Lounge in Chevy Chase DC, which will kind of replace the dearly departed Yamas in Bethesda. Sadly, we have seen our two sponsoring ταβέρνες, first Mourayo (replaced by Zorba’s) then Yamas, close in the last year. There are a few more Hellenic events this month. On Saturday, February 10th, at 2:00 pm, our friends from the Hellenic Writers’ Group of Washington sponsor "Cavafy and the Greek World" with Polyvia Parara, Visiting Assistant Professor, University of Maryland. The event will take place at The Hellenic Center, 6506 Bells Mill Rd., Bethesda, Maryland. https://gallery.mailchimp.com/114a9e9f2cdaa0cce2c3cd406/files/4dde309b-597c-4f59-9c7b-3d5bd9a644c3/PararaCavafyFeb102018.pdf The following weekend, on Sunday, February 18th, from 6:30 to 10 pm, the Hellenic Society Prometheas sponsors their annual Apokriatiko Dinner Party at Nostos in Vienna. Tickets are $50 per person and includes a three course meal plus wine and gratuity. I hope to make it so let me know if you want to car pool, etc. For more info visit Prometheas’ website or visit: Τα λεμε! - Athan

What we're about

Public Group

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)!
