Annual ColaVeg Tofarbeque

CHANGE IN VENUE:  SESQUI STATE PARK

I really didn't expect this amount of interest... and my house is simply too small.  In order to accomodate everybody, we will be moving it back to Sesqui State Park!  I'd really hate to leave anybody out - and now we don't have to! 

Admission to the park is $2 per person (support your state parks!), and we will have signs up to help you find us... just drive until you can't go any more, park, and look for the signs.  If anybody has a portable or at least semi-portable GRILL, please bring it. 

This will be a pot luck tofarbeque - we will supply the grilled tofu and some veggies... and probably some other stuff because we love to cook.  What we will need from you guys is stuff like... I don't know.... potato and macaroni salad (veganaise is wonderful!), corn on the cob, chips and dips, beverages (alcoholic or otherwise), yard games, and your entertaining selves!
