March 15 is Hungarian Independence Day. Today in 1848, Hungarians began their revolt against the Austrian Empire. To celebrate, Maria Nagy hosted a monthly Hungarian club meetup at her crepe stand at the corner of McLendon Ave. and Oakdale Rd. Nagy has run the stand weekends with her ex-husband, Tamás, for three years. In January, Nagy expanded from Saturdays to Friday through Sunday. She's still trying to find the Friday sweet spot but Candler Parkers can find her there every Saturday and Sunday between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., weather permitting.
Typically Nagy sells her sweet and savory crepes, which are cooked to order, along with other Hungarian treats. This Saturday they also had three types of traditional Hungarian sausages.
Look for more on the Palacsinta (Hungarian for "crepe") stand in the April Messenger. In the meantime, watch this brief video of Tamas Nagy making a strawberry crepe.
The March 2014 Messenger is available now (in PDF format) here. This month's edition features a front page article about the proposed cell antennas in the Epworth Church steeple, a piece from Grady High School student Grace Powers about Manuel's Tavern's chicken-centric sustainability efforts, and a writeup about a new book by author and Candler Park resident Titus Joseph, along with plenty more.
