Hello there!

It has been a while since I have added a new blog post.  The Holiday Season really just absorbs so much of all available time and energy that it left little time for any original writing but I think it is time to rev this blog up again and offer weekly or bi weekly posts on various subjects. I also …


Kyklos Greek Cafe and Punk Rock- The Connection: Part I

(The above image is of me, Sophocles Frangakis, at an F.S.P. show back in the day in “the pit”)  For a great article on the coming of age of Punk Rock in Las Vegas and s0me good historical background on the Punk/Hardcore/Underground Scene in Las Veagas, see this article from the Review Journal: http://www.reviewjournal.com/columns-blogs/jason-bracelin/punk-reunion-concerts-venue-far-cry-desert-digs-80s For the connection between Punk Rock, …


How is the word “Gyro” pronounced?

Image from here. ———————-   “How do you pronounce “Gyro”? This question is asked frequently, almost daily.  Often, it involves a couple of people debating the question and they come up to one of us and ask us, waiting eagerly for one or the other of them to be proven right in this long standing dispute as to the correct …


A New Face for an Old Friend

Image from here. —————————- As many of you know, Kyklos Greek Cafe  has been around since June, 2002 and it’s home has always been in the Galleria Mall which is located on Sunset and Stephanie Road.

Writing about “Routine and Repetition” within a routine, and …


The Burden of Repetition

Image from here. ——————————– “Boooooring!” “Humdrum.” “Day in Day Out.” “Again?!” These and other expressions quite often convey a deep seated feeling many of us have when we think of routines or repetition.

Kyklos Greek Cafe-A “Mom and Pop” and NOT Corporate America Food

Image from here. —————————————- At first glance, from the outside looking in, if you are a casual observer who knows nothing about the history of Kyklos Greek Cafe with the” Three Brothers”, you would be tempted to assume that you have just stumbled upon another chain restaurant that gets its recipes, business structure and raison d’etre from someplace far removed …


The Complete Meal

One of the things that sets Kyklos Greek Cafe apart from other eateries is a surprisingly varied menu of items to choose from.  At first glance, walking into a Mall Food Court setting, one may not know of Kyklos Greek Cafe and assume that yes, it’s neat and cool that there is a Greek eatery available as one of the …


Food for the Taste

This week we will speak about Food for the Taste. The last two posts over the last two weeks were Food for the Eyes and Food for the Mind.   This post rounds off and completes what is meant to be a sort of simple yet profound way of understanding eating. The idea for these posts have come about through conversations …
