Papa Cristo's

Top 5 Reasons why you should check out Papa Cristo's Big Fat Greek Thursday dinners:

1. Wine-tasting - Greek wine is so underrated.
2. Big portions - They aren't joking when they say "big, fat"
3. Wide variety - Taramosolata w/ pita, chicken & lamb, potatoes, green beans, fresh-baked bread, feta, dolmathes, green and black olives, plenty of tzatziki sauce, baked feta in phyllos pastry, and of course, baklava and coffee to end.
4. Entertainment provided by a belly-dancer and closet belly-dancers (audience participation is highly encouraged).
5. Didn't finish? Take it home!

Total comes to ~$22 (tax/tip included).

The best reason, of course, is to meet the adorable Papa Cristo, endearingly referred to as "Cris," and bask in his absolutely warm presence.
