Sign me up for gyros, baklava and Greek coffee. I’ll be dining around at the 47th annual Greek Festival this weekend at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Tacoma. The festival begins tomorrow (Oct. 2) and continues through Sunday. Last year’s event yielded myriad selections of Greek classics – all delicious, and all inexpensive – but I really am looking forward to a cup of Greek coffee. Last year, they served tiny cups of the classic Greek coffee at the pastries/dessert booth. If you’ve never had Greek coffee, it’s ridiculously strong coffee sweetened to the tenth degree. It’s rich and thick and burly enough to kick you into next weekend (and great for hangovers). If you’ll miss the Greek festival this weekend, you can find Greek coffee at Opa! on Sixth, where the coffee is served in a traditional long-handled briki (pictured above).
