A quick heads-up to mark your calendar for the 63rd Annual St. John's Armenian Church Food Festival taking place here in San Francsico next weekend: Sat. 10/22 and Sun. 10/23 from 12 Noon until 9PM both days.

Admission is FREE. It's a great opportunity to sample traditional Armenian cuisine including kufta, lamb and chicken kabobs, bourma, kurabia, cheese and spinach bouregs, hummus, tabouleh, sarma, and of course lahmajoon (ground lamb, onions, parsley on a thin pizza-like crust). Desserts available will include delicious home-made baklava and other traditional pastries.

The Festival also includes a cultural booth selling books, live music and dancing, etc.

Has anyone attended this festival? I try to go every year and it's one of the better ones in the Bay Area -- much less crowded than St. Gregory's over on Brotherhood Way -- and it's FREE admission!
