My Big Fat Greek Dinner at Papa Cristo's

Meet one of my new la.foodblogging friends, Neal.
The other day, a group of us from the la.foodblogging world had a live meet up to have some good LA eats with some good LA drinks. The overwhelming consensus was to meet at Papa Cristo's on Pico, just minutes away from where I was coming from...Lucky me! Thursday nights are "My Big Fat Greek Family Style Dinner" nights with prix fixe menus, wine tasting, and belly dancing entertainment - all for about $18.95.
A great review of the night can be found here at Pam's Daily Gluttony.
We all had our digital cameras with us, ready and poised to snap photos of our food. It was as if it was a normal part of our daily dinner routines. No questions asked. No funny faces or laughter. Only support. Support for our fascination and somewhat obsessive hobbies of eating and blogging. Connected by good food for a reasonable price, the real treat of the night was having my big fat Greek dinner with my new la.foodblogging family.
