The members of St. Vartan's Armenian Orthodox Church are holding their annual festival this weekend, October 6-7th, featuring arts and crafts, music and dancing, and tasty Armenian treats.
I've never been, but our close friend Raffi is a church member and says this is the highlight of their social calendar; the food is not to be missed.
