Milk bar and café counters were meeting points between Greek-Australians and British-Australians.
“I’ll meet you at the Greeks” became a popular phrase in many Australia cities and country towns during most of the 20th century – the Greek-run café and milk bar offered a familiar meal, American milk shakes, sodas, ice creams and milk chocolates, amidst the dazzle and sparkle of architectural glamour also from the USA.
But behind the smiles, behind the counters, what was life like for the Greek proprietors and their families? Led by café researchers Leonard Janiszewski and Effy Alexakis, a panel of distinguished Greek-Australians who grew up in Greek cafés and milk bars, will attempt to reveal insights into this question.
The panellists are: Lex Marinos (actor/broadcaster/arts personality), Nick Pappas (lawyer/Rabbitohs Chairman) Adam J. Gerondis (food catering business owner), Anna Patty (Fairfax journalist), Chrissa Loukas (barrister/public defender) and Marina Efthimiou (food catering business owner).
Date: Wednesday 29 March
Start time: 6.30 pm
Venue: The Theatrette, Parliament of NSW, Macquarie Street, Sydney.
