Mid-autumn festival

It's an eventful weekend this weekend, as October begins. For one thing, the traditional Greek Festival in Houston happens in my neighborhood, which brings its usual fare of festive dancing, drinking of the ouzo, and dining, all the dining. From souvlaki to baklava, the generous dinner plates are quite good. But of course, if the weather is amenable, it'll be time for some loukomades as well.

That said, it is coincident with the Chinese mid-Autumn festival, or the Moon Festival. That's traditionally celebrated with the lighting of lanterns and the eating of mooncakes. Locally, Té House of Tea will be serving mooncakes this weekend, although I doubt if they'll have snowskin mooncakes.
