Bak-love It! 

If you all think that Ms. Day only cares about the food at events such as this weekend's Greek Fest, held at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church (1755 Des Peres Road, Town & Country; 314-966-2255 or www.stlgreekfest.com), that's where you'd be wrong. It's just that she puts the food first at these kinds of extravaganzas — but, hey, there's nothing wrong with that! And here's why: After she stuffs herself silly at the Grecian affair with moussaka, spanikopita, lamb shank and baklava, she will have the strength to peruse the imported Greek jewelry, the paintings of Greece and the other treasures offered at the fest's market, and she'll more fully appreciate the live music, the dance performances (happening four times daily beginning on Saturday) and the church tours. Then, after all of her shopping, attentiveness and touring, Day will most certainly have worked up an appetite again, at which time it will be more than appropriate for the lady to re-explore the food offerings and really become emerged in the culture. Her experiences will be further enhanced thanks to gyros, pastitsio and the custardy-sweet galatobouriko — and aren't festivals such as this one all about the cultural enlightenment? Thought so! Greek Fest runs from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday through Monday (May 28 through 31). Admission is free, as is the parking and the parking shuttle, but eats, of course, are extra.
