Cinco de Mayo? It’s Greek to Me

April 30, 2008 at 1:50am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I really, really wish I could go to The Parthenon for their Cinco de Mayo celebration. That’s right, one of Lincoln’s best known Greek restaurants is serving an “authentic Mexican menu” all day on May 5.

What does a Greek restaurant know about Mexican food? That’s a question I would love to know the answer to. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like the Wilsons are going to be able to hit the town that night. If any of you go, I would love to hear how it went.

“What does a Greek restaurant know about Mexican food?”

Probably about as much as Tico’s.  Greece and Mexico have similar shapes so that probably helps too.

You hit that nail on the head.  My wife, mother-in-law, and I made the mistake of hitting up the Parthenon during Cinco de Mayo last year.  What a mistake that was.  They didn’t even offer their regular menu, and on top of that the live music was so loud (being pumped through the speaker system) that not only could we not hear each other speak, people around us were literally covering their ears.

So, if you DO happen to enjoy the Parthenon, you might want to avoid the 5th of May.

I don’t know about this. Not sure I’d trust going to La Paz or someplace like that, once a year, and being excited about them making baklava.
