Can you just imagine a lunch of steaming spuds, piled with mounds of the best toppings created in the history of the universe? It's a cosmic idea! (Thanks Liz for the idea.) To make it a well-rounded event, we will also relax and play games. It's that time of year when some nice indoor fun hits the spot. This would be a good event for kids I think. Or if people would prefer to watch a movie, we could do that instead/too.
We will have to coordinate this event a bit as we will need some people to bring baked potatoes and some people to bring plant-based toppings. It might be nice to have three kinds of potatoes: white, white-fleshed sweet, and orange-fleshed sweet.
Topping Ideas Include
* chopped veggies like: broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, etc.
* vegan cheeze sauces
* sliced olives
* sliced mushrooms
* vegan bacon bits
* vegan sour cream
* vegan parmesan
* vegan sausages or peperoni
If we get a lot of attendees (say more than 10), maybe someone could bring some cookies or brownies for dessert.
Games: I have Bannanagrams, which is a great game for a group of people and can be played at it's own level. I also have Jenga, another good group game, plus Scrabble and several other adult games. For the young at heart, I have several kid games, not mention decks of cards that can be used to build card houses if games are not in order and Duke keeps a proper distance. :-)
WARNING: I will send an e-mail on Wednesday October 16 with directions to my house and further instructions for the event. If you do not receive this e-mail, be sure to e-mail me so that I can try again from my e-mail instead of from the Meetup site. Sometimes Meetup e-mails get caught in SPAM filters. So, keep a look out.
Hope to see you all there!
