So often Facebook fills my feed with fun events. I can see that other friends are interested, but when asked they are rarely actually going. Schedules just don’t allow for every fun thing that comes up.
Saturday evening I met a friend and friends of the friend at the Minneapolis Greek Festival. We weren’t sure what to expect, but given the Uptown location we figured if the event wasn’t what we were into, we could easily go somewhere else. 3 hours later, its safe to say we are fans!
Purchasing tickets for food and drink is always concerning, how many do you need? I spent $25 which allowed for a wine flight, a glass of rose, a beer, and dessert. (Priorities real clear there….) With the group I got a taste of some of the best spanakopita, stuffed grape leaves, and my dessert contribution was a fried dough coated in honey and cinnamon, that I couldn’t spell to save my soul (safe to say, it was all delicious).
I’m so glad I made it a point to actually got the event that I saw on Facebook. It was a wonderful way to explore a different culture and meet new people!
Do you go to Facebook events? Or do you mark “interested” and end up not attending?
Also…Favorite Greek food? I’m tempted to say all of it!
