#1 The Greekend ~ @thegreekend: Looking for parea? Look no further than The Greekend. On Instagram, The Greekend is the go-to hub for connecting with fellow Greek-Americans and finding out “where the parea is at.” Their posts are filled with social content that is submitted to them by young adults of the Greek-American community at large. That means you’ll find photos of social promotions and social gatherings from the West Coast to the East Coast, and the in-between. Per their official website (, they are described as the following: “The Greekend was created in 2019 as a ‘bulletin board’ network of Greek American events throughout the US. Our mission is to inform Greek American young adults of all Greek American events happening throughout the US.” To get extra social on social media, follow them on Instagram @thegreekend
