Annual Social and Cutting of the Vasilopita Thursday, January 16, 2020

You are invited – bring a friend. Continuing with the Greek New Year’s tradition of individuals and organizations cutting the Vasilopita, we will hold our annual Social and Cutting of the Vasilopita from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at Tiqa, 327 Commercial Street. The Vasilopita is either a sweet bread or cake that has a special coin baked inside. Whoever finds the coin in their slice has good luck for the year. Join us for a drink (cash bar), and we will provide some tasty mezedes, and maybe you’ll get the coin!
