Do you love screaming out “Opa!” as much as I do!

Become  inspired for one evening on Wednesday, January 15th as the Greek culture entertains you while we eat, drink and dance all evening! Visit and meet with hundreds of participants including chefs, authors, musicians, artists and many Greeks around the world!

Everyone is invited on January 15th for a Greek dinner with friends, family and even some new friends. Partners to this initiative will host a dinner – one person, two persons or more; use Greek products to create Greek dishes; share a photo or two of their endeavor; share a recipe; Tweet their experience or favorites and then RT (reTweet) others who are sharing their dinner party under the #GreekDinner and #EatGreek.(from Keri’s blog)

The goal is to celebrate Greek cuisine and promote amazing people, authors, chefs, businesses who are connected to Greece.

Keri Douglas @9musesnews has organized this event and has been using her magical social media talents to make this happen worldwide! Visit Keri’s site to become more involved. She will list any books, blogs, music, recipes and talents you may have to share.(from Keri’s blog)

To make it easy to RT others who are on Twitter, she created a #GreekDinnerTwitterList (@9musesnew/GreekDinner). Subscribe, follow & RT what others are sharing on their #GreekDinner. (from Keri’s blog)

I cannot describe how wonderful it has been connecting with everyone who has a true love for the Greek lifestyle, the beautiful foods of Greece, and connect with those who value the history of the culture. It has opened up discussions and personal experiences with new found friends with one common bond – the glorious Greek culture.

One thing we all have in common is that we love FOOD! Greek food. Fresh ingredients, simple recipes, and good wine. Living the good life in the Greek culture means sharing it with others.
We will be tweeting, sending pictures, and mentioning our dinner parties on Wednesday, this 15th, so I hope you will be present with us to enjoy the party!
