Well, not one to air dirty laundry, but I have to report that all hell broke loose Saturday night at a local banquet.
Lady Suzanne and I met up with Sir Hook, Lady Allwinky, Sir Tigger of Kidd and his lovely wife Lady JuJu for dinner at Acropolis – a local Greek restaurant.
Before dinner we enjoyed a few KEOs, brewed in Limassol, in Cyprus (The beer won the 1987 brewing industry world bottled lager competition Gold Medal).
Dinner included hummus, tzatziki, lamp yiovets, mousaka, gyros, kota lemonati, and assorted Greek sweets.
Then came the ouzo. It’s not Greek, of course, without ouzo – an anise flavored Greek liquor.
A couple of more Ouzo shots, a few more Gold Medal winning KEOs and…
Next thing I know, people were yelling strange words at each other, such as “Opa!”
Then napkins were being heaved in the air and at the band…
Then came the belly dancers with lots of husbands joining in (including Sir Hook and Sir Tigger).
Now, I don’t know which wife threw and broke the first plate, but when it happened, all hell broke loose. Next thing I know people are standing in line to break plates (mostly on the dance floor and not husbands).

It was, after all, all for a great cause: A fundraiser for The Boys and Girls Club of Evansville, Indiana. Their Mission: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most,
to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
So, a few Knights did everything they could to be childlike and reach their full potential of merriment!
Saturday was Greek Knight: an evening to live in the moment, forget our worries, money and leave the past behind… and yes, even break plates! Opa!!!
