Opa!

Last night, Jason and I, along with our friends Joan and Randy, went to the Atlanta Greek Festival. The festival is held in a big Greek church near my office. Although I’d never been before, I kept seeing signs for it on the way to work and decided that it might be a fun thing to do.

There was a lot of Greek food to choose from.

I found a vegetarian option which also came with a Greek salad.

When we saw this booth, we knew that we had to try it for dessert.

Sorry for the blurry picture, I just wanted to show what it looked like.

After our tummies were full, we ventured inside to look a the various shops that they’d set up for the festival.

They also had a big dancing area and some kids rides. We stayed for about 2 hours before calling it a night.

Oh, and check out the article that I wrote for Date Night Magazine.
