First to Review
The music is loud, the food is plentiful, and everybody seems to know each other.
I stopped into the dinner tent and ordered the vegetarian plate for $12 with a choice Spanakopita (I chose this) or Tyropita. Served with Dolmades, Greek salad, pita bread, and rice. More than enough for two people (plus, you know you're going to get dessert).
I would have added a photo, but it didn't look very pretty. Just a plate of beige food. The Dolmades were packed full of flavor and the spanakopita was pretty tasty. Everything else was meh.
For drinks, I recommend the Ouzon soda, made right here in Rochester, which tastes of aniseed. Among the standard beer selections (Bud, Coors, etc.) they also offer a Greek beer, Mythos, for $5.
For dessert we got the sampler, which I'll add a photo of. It featured Baklava, Kourambiedes, Kataifi, and a few other treats. Most tasted the same, filled with nuts, honey, and spices, often wrapped in Phyllo dough. I wish the Loukoumades were included, as they looked tasty and different. Also really wanted to try the baklava ice cream. For $15, the sampler is probably not worth it. We did split three ways though and still had extra. I say stick with the backlava.
I lived there from 1986 to 2001
I take it you've never actually been anywhere else.
Crappy paintings of wolves and adobe buildings made by people that are 1/32nd Pima are not art. They're a joke. Next thing you're going to tell me is that you're attending exhibitions at the park and swap at the dog track.
The closest thing to art that Phoenix ever had was that elephant at the zoo that use to paint. That's it. I remember when the 51 opened, and the city paid about one million to have those pots put along the retaining walls. The city had a FUCKING FIT. The old people were going crazy because they might have to pay an extra 5 cents a year in taxes to pay for something nice
