Festival-goers celebrated everything Greek last weekend at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church (1755 Des Peres Road, Town & County; 314-966-2255): music, dancing and the best part, food. We've got a full slideshow of the event here, but Gut Check has all the food porn for your viewing (and drooling) pleasure. And if you missed it, maybe these photos will convince you to go next year!
