I’ll Explain Everything To The Greeks.

I first stumbled across Scoozies many moons ago. In those days my friends and I had a lot of free time on our hands. We didn't exactly have day jobs per say. To break up the week we would often head down to the financial district at lunch hour to scam on business babes. It never worked. I suppose we should have worn suits or something? What we did find was a lovely family run Greek cafe. Some bangers to order at Scoozies are as follows: the meatball dish, the lemon chicken soup, and the Greek salad with chicken above. A nice feature is they serve a piece of grapefruit with every dish. I have always enjoyed the grapefruit. Speaking of which,  a wise man once said to me: Son, when looking for a mate, you're going to want to go ahead and find yourself a grapefruit. They take a little work, but once you get them open you have the goods. A little work? Yeah right. What qualifications does one need to be deemed a Wise Man these days anyway?

Note: I have no idea what in god's name this song is about, but it often stays in my head for months at a time. I sing it exclusively in the shower. The National rules.

Greek Day Yeah I Can’t Say No.

Today is Greek Day, a day where we must must try everything Greek. When I desire the Greek at home Dallas Pizza is one of the best places to order in from. My all time go-to is of course Stephos, but regrettably they don't deliver. Order from Dallas. Trust me. They do something magical with those potatoes. The carb loading is all time. The Greek may very well be one of my all time favorites. Yet sometimes I get the feeling I have never even tried it before. Straight to the Greek, no Tazeek.

Note: This song reminds me of the time I was 13, and we went to Greek Town Toronto to buy skateboards  from Hogtown Skates on the Danforth. Souvlaki: respect.

Stephos is personally my favorite greek restuarant in the city. The savings alone is reason to wait in the ever so common line out front. At $7.95 the Souvlaki plate is certainly the best value in Vancouver. The fact you will be full for days is also a nice feature. Even my friend Nick The Greek Physique claims this spots rules. That must account for something. Wait a minute, Im not so sure he is even greek? Regardless, hit this spot up.

Note: Speaking of Enrique Iglesias, many of the wait staff over at Stepho's resemble ethnic ball room dancers. They move with such grace as they bring food to the table. I imagine Enrique would move like that, if he ever were to become a waiter.
