Those lovable pizza and salad tossers over at Kustom Pizza are celebrating their first successful year in business. Stop in on Saturday and celebrate with them, enjoying discounted menu items, and half prize large pizzas for everyone who wears a kilt. Strange, yes, but that's why we love them. Also check out pizza dough spinning lessons at the beginning of every hour and live music--including the Muddy River Nightmare Band and SK and the Punkass Bitches--starting at 4 pm. KS

Greek Fest

Fri-Sun October 3-5, 3131 NE Glisan

Every week this summer it seems like there's been another ethnically themed celebration. This week's Greek Fest, however, is one of the most exciting because of the phenomenal Greek food. Sure, go check out the Greek dancing and music if you care about that stuff, but more importantly, snatch up some stuffed grape leaves, gyros, flaming cheese, or just get a dinner plate filled with tons of different delicacies. Also check out the exhaustive selection of Greek pastries, like kadaifi (made with butter, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, cloves, and honey) or traditional baklava. And to wash it all down, Greek favorites like beer, wine, and coffee will be flowing like water down a mountain. KS
