Just lie back, open your mouth and brace for incoming gyros.
Yep, Welcome To Thornbury is going Greek this weekend, which means the scent of roasting lamb is gonna waft about 20km down High St. It’s their first ever dedicated Greek food festival, and the guys have got a few little surprises up their blue and white sleeves.
Here’s what’s happening: the park will be taken over by the likes of Jimmy Grants (gyros), Jim Brown Cypriot Food (kleftico, koupes and sheftalies), Chef Calamari (calamari, duh) and The Malakas (panakopita, kreatopita and stifado). Mr Burger will be throwing down a one-off Greek burger (with enough garlic sauce to stop a charging bull elephant), and the boys from St Gerry’s will be on hand, throwing Greek doughnuts into waiting mouths like dolphin trainers at Sea World.
Behind the bar you can expect ice-cold Mythos lager—aaaand here come the Mykonos flashbacks—plus free-flowing ouzo all day long. This sh*t could get VERY messy.
There’s also gonna be traditional Greek dancers, if you feel like getting your Opa! on—which, after three glasses of ouzo, you definitely will.
Where: Welcome To Thornbury, 520 High St Northcote
When: From 11am, Saturday 25 November
