Best Greek


Maybe the gods of ancient Greece can save us from the apocalypse predicted by the Mayans—but how do we get their attention? Let's sacrifice a herd of sheep! No, too messy. The only other thing that comes to mind is to make Zeus, Hera and the rest of the gang an offering of their favorite food ... you know, Greek food. For that, we'll need a trip to Opa!, where the giant servings of Grecian goodness are truly fit for the gods. If we order the flaming saganaki—a plate of blazing feta—it'll send a smoke signal straight from our table to Mount Olympus. If that doesn't do the trick, we can just munch on the complimentary hummus while contemplating the coming ruination. Whatever works.
