DC Greek Language Meetup
Γιασσας και καλή χρόνια! Hope everyone’s 2018 is off to a great start. For our first Greek Language MeetUp of the calendar year we’ll head back to the Old Dominion State, to Kapnos Taverna in Arlington, on Thursday, January 25th at 7 pm. As you may recall, we need to make a reservation at Kapnos so please RSVP (and show up on American time!). Here are a few more Hellenic activities: * There are TWO upcoming Greek Nights with our hometown Washington Wizards! invites you to the Capital One Arena on Epiphany, Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 8:00 PM to watch the Washington Wizards take on "Greek Freak" Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. They have reserved a block of 50 tickets. Visit for more info. The Wizards host Greek Heritage Night on Friday, January 12th at 7:30 versus the Orlando Magic. I already have tickets to the Bucks game on the 5th but let me know ASAP if you want to join me on the 12th for Greek Heritage Night. * The next KYKLOS Greek language symposium is Wednesday, January 24th at 8 pm, at the Hellenic Center, 6506 Bells Mill Road, Bethesda. This month’s theme is: “Ελληνικές παραδόσεις που γνωρίσαμε σαν παιδιά, τις λατρέψαμε, και τις συνεχίζουμε στα σπίτια μας ακόμα και σήμερα” or “Greek traditions we enjoyed as children that we still practice and pass on today.” * Finally, our friends at Prometheas celebrate Greek Letters Day on Saturday, January 27th at 7 pm at St. George in Bethesda. For more information visit: That’s enough for know. Hope to see everyone at Kapnos, and let me know about Greek Heritage Night with the Wizards. 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)!
