What to eat this weekend and beyond

Do you want free sparkling wine, moussaka, German sausage and more? Here’s your list:

MooLala — Now through Saturday
This Swiss fondue restaurant at Shaw and Marks avenues is serving serving free glasses of sparkling wine to celebrate its one-year anniversary. Details are in my column.

Greek Fest — Friday through Sunday
The 49th annual Greek Fest has returned to St. George Greek Orthodox Church. Here are the treats, the schedule and directions.

Famous Dave’s — Monday
To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Famous Dave’s at Blackstone and El Paso avenues is giving a break to anyone named Dave, David, Davy and Davey. (Bring valid ID with you.)

If your first name fits the bill, you will receive a free entrée (maximum value of $15). If your middle name is Dave, David, Davy or Davey, you’ll get an entrée for half price (maximum value of $7.50).

Also available are $3 pints of domestic beers and a Buck-A-Bone special: Buy an entree and add St. Louis-style ribs for $1 each. (Limit of six ribs per person).

Reedley’s Taste of the Town — Thursday
From 6:30-9 p.m., Reedley’s 12th annual Taste of the Town will have German sausage, local wines and olive oil, verenika (dumplings filled with cottage cheese), Mexican seafood, California cuisine and more. The Reedley Downtown Association has more details, as well as videos of some featured restaurants and wineries.

Yeah, I noticed that. The press release I received says it’s on Monday at the Fresno Dave’s.

So I called our local restaurant, and a manager verified that the “Calling All Daves” promotion is on Monday.

You can still get the beer and the buck-a-bone ribs if your name isn’t Dave. (The beer and bones specials will last until Sept. 15. “Calling All Daves” is just on Monday.)

No worries. It confused me, too.
