Port Jeff Greek Fest
Went to the Port Jefferson Greek Festival Saturday night. Didn't get there until almost 9:00. Place was mobbed. Expect to walk about 1/2 a mile to get there from where you park. There were people being bused around, but I'm not sure where they were parked.
Lots of jewelry vendor stands. Some other junk, like $5.00 Minnie Mouse ears, which I was forced to buy. A few rides and games. Mostly went there for the food. There is a central food area, where the customers are herded like cattle to the slaughter through a long maze. Took about 25 mins. to get the food after getting in line.
The food was OK. Decent prices. Greek salad was not the best. Some pics:
Near the entrance. Lots of vendor stands. Some guy giving me look of displeasure. Way to ruin my shot.

Food line maze. Not unlike King Minos' Labyrinth? (Nerd/loser joke.)

Pork souvlaki, Greek salad, and a tyropita (feta cheese pie--very rich and very salty)

Coastal Cooking with John Shields
At 1:00 AM on Saturday nights/Sunday mornings, I'll often put on Coastal Cooking with John Shields on WLIW, before I head out to the clubs.
Reader: You are so full of shit. First, you wouldn't be allowed into any clubs. Second, we all know you never leave your house unless you run out of Twinkies or bourbon.
ANYWAY...I have no idea what anyone is saying on the show. I just watch to see John Shields' weird mannerisms and facial expressions when he's talking to people. They can only be truly appreciated by watching the actual show, but here are some screen captures.
Raised eyebrows/feigned interest in what the person is saying
Listening hard/continued feigned interest
Awkward, too-big, smile
I like bunnies

Meson Ole in Patchogue
Went to the Patchogue Meson Ole on a recent Saturday night. The food is pretty standard Mexican on Long Island. My combo came with a tamale that was very wet. Little bummed about that. Entrees average around $14-$15. The combos average around $13.
The main appeal is that it's a nice place to sit outside on a summer evening and have dinner. For reasons men don't understand, this is a big deal to women.
The front outdoor eating area was about 20 feet from Montauk Highway. So it can get noisy. About half of the dinner conversation was me shouting "What?" The other half was me pretending to care what she was saying. #Ha #Lolz
Drink prices are reasonable. The GF got a blue something. Was $9.00. As opposed to the $15 or whatever at the Cheesecake Factory and other places.
Objects on the road are closer than they appear.
My combo with a wet tamale.
Later that night, I got my other tamale wet. #Ha #Not really
