Original Greek Festival co-chair Fote Demeris admits that after Harvey, they considered postponing or even canceling the annual celebration of all things Greek, but “decided to keep it because it gives people an escape.” Houstonians have been escaping to the festival for 51 years, and Demeris attributes that to one simple factor. “I think our biggest draw is the authenticity of our food.” From spanakopita and gyros to baklava and kourambiedes — not to mention 20,000 shish kebabs — it’s no surprise Demeris advises festival-goers to “come hungry.” Also, try zTrip; users who download the app will get a $25 credit from Yellow Cab.
