Again, please note, this is a potluck, so bring your favorite raw-food dish to share and enter in our 2013 FAVORITE RAW DISH contest for a grand prize.  For the potluck, bring a raw, vegan, preferably organic dish to share with about 12-15 people.  We usually spend about $15 each. Include a recipe card with a list of ingredients and your name on it.  Also remember to bring your own serving utensil.  

We know that holidays get busy and if you absolutely cannot bring a dish or buy something raw at the store, then you can bring $15 cash to help offset costs.  Just email us in advance so we can prepare extra food:  [masked]

In addition, this year we are asking for a $2 donation at the door to help pay for the space.  Please try to bring exact change if you can.

Any questions, contact Claudia or Ariane via meetup or at [masked]

Let's celebrate together, make new friends, enjoy some delicious holiday food, and have fun!

PARKING: easy street parking, also a huge lot across Sheridan Road by the lake, come early to walk by the lake!
