No Zorba, Smashing!
As far as I can tell, plate smashing is not really authentic to these bouzouki evenings and just done to please tourists who assume that it is. Neither is Zorba The Greek the only song they can play. That said, it must have started somewhere and this is the cheaper/saner version - paper towels. The mainly Greek audience knew exactly when to start throwing and we joined in. Which was fun. In a non-stop 3 hour+ set these guys didn't play Zorba once.
