Read more about TURKEY here!

Turkish Raki is the most popular drink for Turkish Men. When one thinks of Turkey or Turks, one is reminded of Raki, the traditional Turkish drink. Raki can be made from different fruits in different regions, but raisin is the most common. The drink made in Anatolia and known as Turkish raki has a history going back 300 years. The art of distillation which started in the Arab world and spread to the neighboring countries was implemented when people thought of making use of the sugar in the residue of wine processing. With the addition of aniseed, raki took on its Turkish characteristic.

Hookah traditions in Turkey

Hookah smoking by a coffee shop in Diyarbakýr, 1909.In Turkey, hookah is smoked on a social basis, usually in one’s home with guests or in a cafe with friends. Most cities have hookah cafes where hookah is offered with a non-alcoholic drink (mainly tea). This is mostly for health reasons rather than cultural reasons. Often people will smoke hookah after dinner as a replacement for cigarettes. In bigger cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, and Adana, restaurants may have dinner & hookah specials which include meal, beverage (alcoholic/non-alcoholic), Turkish coffee, and hookah.

Once the centre of Istanbul’s social and political life, the hookah is considered one of life’s great pleasures by the locals today. In certain parts of the country, people use hookah cafes to watch popular TV shows, national sports games, etc. and smoke hookah to socialize.

Scandinavia is a historical and geographical region centered on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe which includes the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The other Nordic countries, Finland and Iceland (+ the Faroe Islands), are also sometimes included because of their close historic and cultural relations to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

Although it depends on context which countries are considered Scandinavian, the term the NORDIC COUNTRIES is used unambiguously for Norway, Sweden, Denmark (including the Faroe Islands and Greenland), Finland (including Åland) and Iceland.

EuroCircle welcomes other NORDIC/SCANDINAVIAN organizations/institutions/performers to participate this evening as co-hosts.

Hello everyone:

March is just around the corner and it’s almost time for our next get-together. This month at XO Bar was great thanks to to all that showed up. We will have the event there again for sure…

The March get-together will take place at a brand new Italian restaurant called Amore, located in Midtown (right next to Marlow’s Tavern, just down the street from Ecco). I checked out the place and it is perfect for our event.

We will meet at the back bar area (reserved for us) and as usual, appetizers will be served. Covered parking is behind the building. Once you walk out of the parking garage, turn right and walk towards West Peachtree and make a right, Amore is just down on the right. For those of you familiar with the area, you can also park and walk through the back entrance of Marlow’s Tavern, exit at West Peachtree, make a sharp left and you will see Amore on your left…

Date: Tuesday, March 4th, 2008
Time: 7:30pm until….
Location: Amore Restaurant
Address: 950 West Peachtree
Atlanta, GA 30309
Tel: 404-477-0404

Hope to see everyone there!!!
