Christos Anesti - Greek Easter in Boston

I'm blessed with some pretty amazing friends from my college years at Northeastern. Unfortunately, they ALL stayed around Boston after graduation. I'm the odd duck out. I lived in New York for a while and then made my way down to Philly to be with BryGuy. While I do get a little jealous at how often they get to see each other because of geographic proximity, I try and make a few visits a year to Boston to spend some quality time with them and cackle like we used to do in college. 

Last month, Bry and I visited Boston and had a blast, so much fun in fact, that while we were visiting (and under the influence of a few espresso martinis) we booked a trip back for May. The real reason we had to get back to the Bean so quickly was because they were hosting their annual, and world-famous Greek Easter celebration! If you don't know about Greek Easter, you clearly don't have any Greek friends. This party is the real deal -- it's a full day of chowing down, drinking and spending time with friends and family. Don't ask me why Greek Orthodox Easter and Western Christian eastern don't fall on the same day, I don't really know... except a quick Google search explains that they are simply calculated differently.



Back to more important details, we had a blast. BryGuy had never been to a Greek Easter party before and he was loving the lamb, pig, and the kokoretsi slow cooking on the spit. The food was amazing (as usual) and we were blessed with a beautiful sunny day. Check out photos from the day below:

We had great bartenders all day long. The kids were making some good tips too!

And this is how you eat it....

With a little nod to Cinco de Mayo we celebrated Cinco de Greeko!

We ended the night with a fire and lots of blankets!
