Its a little known fact that Perfect Strangers actor Bronson Pinchot based the character of Balki Bartokomous on villagers he encountered while on a Greek vacation.
Thats the sort of obscure Greek-related trivia that youd only hear being discussed over gyros at this years A Taste of Greece Festival on Saturday, April 30, at Tempe Beach Park, 620 North Mill Avenue.
Its not the only thing the two-day extravaganza has in store for those in attendance, as the fest is brimming with Greek folk dance performances set to boisterous traditional tunes, and free instructional sessions for newbies. Gyros, souvlaki, baklava and the libations of the taverna will provide proper fuel for the heel-kicking.
