Where I went to college, Greek Week meant something very different. At Niko Niko's in Market Square Park, Greek Week is a week-long event that culminates in a celebration of 180 years of Greek independence on Sunday, March 25.
In partnership with Market Square Park, the restaurant will be hosting a different event every day this week leading up to a huge Greek Independence Day brunch on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tonight at 6 p.m., join the restaurant for $2 Mythos beers and a talk on the history of Greek mythology. The rest of the week's schedule is below, and many of the events are free:
Tuesday: Free Greek pastry and coffee tasting, 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday: Backgammon lessons, 6 to 8 p.m. Friday: Screening of 300 ("This is Sparta!") sponsored by the Alamo Drafthouse, 8 p.m. Saturday: Wine tasting, Greek music and dancing (the wine will really help with this last part if you feel inclined to join in), 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday: Greek Independence Day brunch, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
