I can be your gyro, baby


MID-EAST FOOD FESTIVAL: A flake of cigar ash adds spice to any meal. (Photo by Dustin Chambers)

If you’re the sort of Atlantan who likes his/her meat-on-a-stick seasoned with Eastern Christianity, then man, oh woman, last weekend was heaven (on Earth) for you.

On Saturday, the St. John Chrysostom Melkite Catholic Church in Druid Hills held its 43rd annual Mid-East Food Festival. And all weekend, the Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Marietta held its annual Marietta Greek Festival. Along with abundant lamb, beef and pork, the feta’d fete featured traditional Greek folk dancing, and a Greek musical history lesson with included folksy Zorba-ish tunes as well as modern club hits. Did you ever know that you’re my gyro?
