On 19 November 2013, I got an invitation from Zayna Al-Hamarneh, for an upcoming event for this cute Greek restaurant in Abdoun. The first thing I thought was OOPA! You know? From My Big Fat Greek Wedding? One of my favorite movies of all time!

‘Nice Greek girls are supposed to do three things in life: marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone… until the day we die. Nice Greek girls who don’t find a husband, work in the family restaurant. So here I am, day after day, year after year, thirty and way past my expiration date’ .

If you haven’t watched this movie, I think you should, I forced my family to watch it many times with me until they could recite it by heart!

In any case, the day came, I almost forgot about the event and I was way too lazy to move when I remembered because I was SO cold but I’m glad I did move, dress up, hail a cab and head to the gathering! As usual, I was among the first to arrive, I felt so excited when I took my coat off and concentrated on things around me, the restaurant was small, had a family feel to it and the zorba dance music was blasting all around me, making me feel like breaking some dishes and dance in circles!

But sadly, the owner Fadi Ghantous didn’t agree on smashing dishes in his restaurant. I guess many people wanted to do what I was thinking about, because the owner made sure all the accessories were plastic and totally unbreakable. Such a shame!

In any case, as my friends, and many new people ‘tweet-ups’ arrived… the fun began. There was 2 or 3 questions about Greece and if you tweet them quickly before the others and you get it right you win. Sadly, I wasn’t quick enough.

Then each of us went to order his/her meal, I pick one that was so yummy and for this part the competition was to take the best photo of your meal. Here, unexpectedly, I won! Yup! I was shocked myself! Which reminds me, I still haven’t used my voucher for dinner! I must soon! Maybe even today!

The night was fun, the conversations were loud and very Greek and I was so happy to have come rather than stay under a blanket at home. We had a sweet healthy dessert at the end, a fruit salad of sort.

I went back home and told my family about this place and the event… the smiled and laughed and I went to bed dreaming Greece…
