It was just this year that I learned the proper pronunciation for “gyro.” You can learn it as well, and eat one or two at this year’s Greek Festival. Of course, there is plenty of other traditional Greek fare to munch on — Souvlaki, anyone? After you eat, get even more into the Greek spirit by indulging in traditional Greek dancing and music. If you’re looking for souvenirs to take home, take a stroll through the Agora and peruse clothing, jewelry, icons, and specialty foods. There are also regular church tours, and a Kiddie Village for children to enjoy.

COMEDY | DAVE ATTELL
If there’s one thing you can be sure of about Dave Attell’s stand-up shows, it’s that nothing is off limits. The veteran comic doesn’t shy away from the offensive, and his thoughts can tend to be just a tad bizarre: Steve Irwin didn’t just die, but was murdered after the crocodiles put out a hit on him. You may recognize him from his series on Comedy Central back in the day, “Insomniac with Dave Attell,” where he walked around cities late at night seeing what crazy stuff he could find. Even if you aren’t familiar with his work, his comedy is worth your time. Just be warned if you’re morally inclined. Dave Attell will perform five shows at The Comedy Club (2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster) from Thursday, May 28, through Saturday, May 30. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday; 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. $35-$40. thecomedyclub.us; daveattell.com. — BY TREVOR LEWIS [ MON., JUNE 1 ] Widget the Reading Dog and her Pal Joey. 3-4 p.m.
