Greek Dinner Around the World Jan. 15, 2014

Imagine a dinner party to celebrate Greek culture, cuisine, philosophy and heritage around the world with family, friends, and new friends. This is Greek Dinner Around the World on January 15th.

An idea that was sparked last year by the film Kiveri by Panayloti Yannitsos () and a conversation over Twitter with authors Marjory McGinn (), Mary Platis (), & Peter Minaki () on how to connect and promote one’s work. In an instant, San Francisco Greek-American poet Katie Aliferis () joined in and from there is history.

Why not have a dinner party with friends around the world and share and promote each other’s creative ventures in books, films, art, cuisine, wine, philosophy, diplomacy, business and entrepreneurial endeavors.

One friend after another from Melbourne to Tokyo to Kazahkstan to Athens to Berlin to Brussels to London to New York to Toronto to Chicago to San Diego, hundreds of people, if not over a thousand, joined to celebrate a love for Greek culture and heritage.

Friends joined by hosting their own dinner party at home, at restaurants, universities with one olive to a full traditional Greek dinner menu. Some talked wine, olive oil, olives, heritage, mythology, diplomacy, business, art, (stolen art), films, and, of course, books. Talented friends joined, shared, promoted each other’s endeavors and connected with new friends. In a year, friendships have been created that uplift the spirits across borders.

Mark your calendars and have a dinner party on Thursday, January 15, 2015 to join the Greek Dinner Around the World to honor your Greek heritage, cultural and connection to Greece.

If you want to organize a dinner and have it promoted – post a comment and share a photo or message. All hosts (who want to be listed) will be listed. Submit your name, city, location (if public) of your dinner, and any other important details.

Follow the dinner party on social media through #GreekDinnerTwitterList on Twitter, Greek Dinner Around the World on Facebook, Instagram, #GreekDinner on Pinterest and Google+. When you are inspired, share, retweet, comment, connect, and engage with other dinner parties and enjoy!

Where is Greek culture in your city, home or heart?
