Anna Vissi performances coming soonWhen I’m in Athens, I’m almost always racing between apartments, heading to Praktiker and Leroy Merlin (Greek home improvement stores, think Greek Home Depot) and Makro (thing Costco or Sams Club), I frequently drive up and down Pireos Street. Lucky for me I’m not only running errands, but I’m scouting out the clubs and bouzoukias along the way, watching for the first signs of the winter scene in Athens. This week I’ve found that Anna Vissi is now coming soon to the cavernous Pantheon on Pireos street, and Nikos Terzis will be at Kentro Athinon. Coming soon to Kentro Athinon, Nikos Terzis




It’s also not too late to catch a show at one of the beachfront clubs. Beginning August 28, 2009 you can see Giorgos Margaritis with Yiorgos Tsalikis and Kostas Karafotis at Thea, 3 Poseidonos Avenue, Alimos Marine (Reservations call 210/98-13-950).

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
