… If you are single, you can come pick up a guy or a girl – you don’t even need an excuse to get close and have physical contact. Just join the Zorba circle, a little Yassou! and a couple of Opa’s and Nicolopoulos is your uncle! (with a little stretch of the imagination of course)…
Once again, I found myself at West End’s Musgrave Park for the Panyiri 2013. I have religiously been going to this event for as far as I can remember.
I love coming for the food, music, dancing, the rides, the drinks, the friendly conversations, and most important of all – the honey puffs. I must admit I am addicted to them…
The usual suspects could be found this year, Nerissa the Peloponnesian Princess, the hosts (that guy from the Coffee Club and the other funny guy), Hercules and Xena, the Greek dancers (those guys and gals are just amazingly co-ordinated, flexible and fun), the buckets and buckets of marinated octopus, calamari, dolmades, haloumi, souvla etc…etc… the list goes on and on. And also the copious amounts of Mythos, Ouzo and Greek wines.
What more could you want? It’s a great day out. If you are single, you can come pick up a guy or a girl – you don’t even need an excuse to get close and have physical contact. Just join the Zorba circle a little Yassou! and a couple of Opa’s and Nicolopoulos is your uncle! (with a little stretch of the imagination).
I am sure to come to many more Panyiri’s. Thanks to all the people involved in making this event a reality – and thanks to all of the chef’s and cook’s who dedicate their entire Saturday and Sunday to feeding us hungry people.
