Weekend Eats

SanTan Oktoberfest, MasterChef Casting Call, and Texas State Fair Food This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Oktoberfest celebrations continue this weekend with beer-fueled parties going down in Chandler and Phoenix. If you're looking for something more charitable to fill your time, you may want to check out Food Fight, a culinary tasting event to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix and the Arizona Restaurant Association. Don't miss your chance to strut your stuff for the judges of Fox's MasterChef this Saturday, and if you're looking for a Frito Pie, we know where you can get one.

A Taste of Greece Friday, October 4

This Friday will kick off Chandler's three-day celebration of all things Greek -- including and most importantly to us food lovers: food. The A Taste of Greece fest at the St. Katherine Church in Chandler will have an array of classic and traditional Greek dishes including chicken, lamb shank, moussaka, and (our personal favorite) dolmathes. Attendees will be able to find different delicacies at both the indoor and outdoor dining areas with pastries available too including baklava, melomakarona, and kourambiedes. Once you've fueled up, feel free to hit the dance floor for one of the Greek folk-dancing workshops.

Free admission to the event is available online. The festival will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday, form 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. For more information visit the A Taste of Greece website.
