Outside of monasteries, do any churches which use the Greek typicon (GOA, Antiochian, etc.) , on the eves of the Great Feasts or Sundays, ever have the entire vigil (both Vespers and Matins combined)?  Is this practice to be found more in the churches that follow the Slavic typicon?  Are vigils simply not done at the parish level because of the time?  Really curious to know.

I've seen it done in our Cathedral once in the past year, but we are pesky Old Calendarists so caveat emptor. Wink

Not that I've seen.  Most Churches I've been to (GOA) do Matins immediately before the Divine Liturgy, not combined with the Vespers the night before.  The rare parish that actually will do the occasional vigil does the whole thing (all-night, including Compline w/ Akathist, Paraklesis, etc.), not just Vespers + Matins.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The metropolitan cathedral of Cluj always does a vigil, but I'm not sure we use "the Greek typikon" either.

I have been to a few vigils at Greek churches in London, but, as Fr. George said, they always consist of more than just Vespers and Matins, which seems to be a Slavic thing.
