Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I'm back again with a new edition of Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food and drink events. I hope everyone dines out safely, tips well and are nice to their servers.
1) Greco, one of my favorite spots for Gyros & Loukamades, has opened a new location at Hub Hall next to TD Garden. To celebrate the opening their newest location, Greco is hosting their first Breakfast Gyro Pop Up on October 23 and October 24 from 8am-11am. 

Greco, ownered by Demetri Tsolakis and Stefanos Ougrinis, opened its first location on Newbury Street in 2017. Greco shares all of their tastes of home. Greco is their “meraki,” the need to remember and create. Greco now has three other locations in Boston’s Back Bay, Seaport and Downtown Crossing.

The Breakfast Gyro Pop Up Menu includes: 
--Greek American: two eggs your style, bacon or sausage, ketchup, honey mustard, onion, tomato, French fries ($10)
--Truly Greek Breakfast Gyro: two over easy eggs, pork gyro, feta, tzatziki, onion, tomato, French fries ($12)
--Beefeggy: two over easy eggs, bifteki, spicy feta, onion, tomato, French fries ($12)
--Breakfast Fries: Hand-cut potatoes, feta, pork gyro, fried egg, hot sauce ($8)
--Pumpkin Spiced Frappe: sketo, metreo, glyko +nounou ($5)

2) The 12th Annual Champagne Day is  next Friday, October 22. This is a day to celebrate all things Champagne, from the unique sparkling wine and its history to the region of France that gives it its name. To mark the occasion, retailers, restaurants, bars, clubs, and schools around the world are planning tastings and special events, both in person and virtually. Currently, I haven't seen any special Champagne events being held in the Boston+ area. 

Now more than ever, we know just how special it is to come together with loved ones and friends, and there is no better way to celebrate than by grabbing a glass of Champagne and toasting to brighter days ahead, either in-person or virtually.
