VALENTINE'S DAY
Thursday, February 14th

Make your reservations now to join us for a romantic Valentine's Dinner!

~

Cupid is in full effect around Valentine's Day. Known as the God of Love in Roman Mythology, Cupid's Greek counterpart is "Eros". Just like Cupid, Eros is also depicted as a winged young man with a bow and arrow in hand. He carries two different types of arrows: one that is gold with dove feathers and causes instant love and another that is made of lead with owl feathers that causes indifference. According to the poet Sappho, Eros is best described as being bitter sweet and cruel to his victims, yet charming and very beautiful at the same time!

GREECE TRAVEL TIPS:
Three "Undiscovered" Islands in the Peloponnese

For a vacation get-a-away where you will get a great feel for the Greek culture, try visiting these lesser-traveled islands:

  • Spetses: A two-hour boat ride from Athens gets you to this small island with 18 miles of coast and 4100 year-round inhabitants. There are no cars on the island (except for about 4 cabs) but feel free to flag down a horse-drawn carriage or rent a bike or motorcycle.
  • Monemvasia: The translation of this island's name is "single entrance" and there really is only one way into the main town, which is through a stone archway. This island is a massive Gibraltar-like little isle, which is only over a mile long, but boasts of ancient architecture from the Byzantine era that remains virtually untouched.
  • Kythira: This island has 30 miles of coastline, lush mountains filled with wildflowers and iconic white houses and broad beaches. Because of this island's beauty, it is known as Aphrodite's island. There are several villages on the island to visit and each one has its own unique identity.
