Return of the Potluck ..We're Back Baby!

  • Apr 20, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is something I used to do for the various meetup groups and since my roommates and I now have living room furniture again, it's time. The way I work this event is that we do a potluck type of meal. Everyone brings something, whether it is food or a tasty alcoholic beverage. If you prefer something non-alcoholic to drink, I will have some soda on hand as my contribution to the festivities. If anyone has a portable barbeque & grilling supplies, we can probably set it up in the small back enclosed area by my kitchen. If you have i-pod with portable speakers, feel free to bring it. As a back-up option...we can play cd’s off the x-box in my living room. Most of my music is Latin-oriented so anything to round out the mix is much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you all on the 20th of April. Feel free to bring your friends.

    Quick update on bbq foods. Rob is bringing 8 chicken cutlets, some vegan and regular hot dogs and 5 Johnsonville Italian sausage links. I will be contributing either 1-2 packs of Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausages or bratwursts (usually 5 links per pack). If you still have not figured out what you are going to bring in terms of food, possibilities for bbq: burgers (meat & vegan). Also in terms of burger toppings: onions, pickles, tomatoes, peppers, etc.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. Contact #'s for people who may need directions:

  • dairong

    Just be curious, how big is the house to accommodate so many people ?

    April 20, 2013

    • Joshua

      You can fit about 20-30 people in living room areas. Plus 3 in my room and 5 in what my roomates and I aare calling the "book" room. Plus we have a small enclosed porch area behind the kitchen.

    Still not sure what to bring just hyped about meeting everyone lol

    IT'S GOING TO BE GOOD TO CATCH UP WITH OLD FACES AS WELL AS GREET NEW MEMBERS AS WE ARE 72 HRS AWAY FROM KICKING THIS OFF. AGAIN, A REMINDER TO BRING PORTABLE FOLDING CHAIRS WITH YOU IF YOU HAVE THEM. RIGHT NOW, MY ROOMATES AND I HAVE A COUCH AND EASY CHAIR IN LVING ROOM, BUT THAT IS EXTENT OF FURITURE WHICH PEOPLE CAN SIT ON. ALSO IF YOU ARE BRINGING INGREDIENTS WITH YOU, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO BRING APPROPRIATE SUPPLIES TO COOK THEM WITH. WE DO HAVE SOME POTS AND PANS, BUT IT NEVER HURTS TO HAVE SOME EXTRA IN CASE MORE THAN ONE PERSON NEEDS TO USE THE STOVE. SEE YOU ALL ON 4/20/13. I'M REALLY PYSCHED FOR THIS EVENT.

    I'd love to come to this! It is on my birthday though, so I'm not sure if I'll have something else going on. How is parking there? (Coming from the suburbs)

    Also, I've been waitlisted. Should I ignore that or are you trying not to have over a certain amount of people?

    April 14, 2013

    • Joshua

      I actually need to cap it at 47 people, as I have some other meetup groups coming out for this as well. So I would not ignore it. If a spot opens up, then you're more than welcome to attend. As far as parking goes, there is usually some availability in the surrounding streets or I've seen people use the lot by the goodwill store that went out of business off corner of 22nd and Passyunk.

      No worries! Thanks for the response. I wasn't sure how that worked on here :)

  • Paul

    Ok if I bring along a case of cider (woodchuck, angry orchard, etc.)?

    April 14, 2013

    • Joshua

      It's all good. Big cider fan personally, but can't speak for anyone else.

      April 14, 2013

  • Michelle

    I'm told I'm a great cook, and more than willing to bring a dish/meet new people. Not quite sure what I'd bring yet, but definitely yummy. Let you know soon, if that's okay? Thanks

    Looking forward to the event as we hit the 2 week countdown. Again, just a reminder to bring folding chairs if you've got them. Extra folding tables are also appreciated if anyone can scorunge them up from their closets.

    Thanks for signing up everyone. I'm going to ask that people take a few seconds to indicate what they plan on bringing in terms of food to the festivities in the comments section so I can better prepare the kitchen for your use. Right now, I can tell you that you will have access to a stove with 4 burners and a microwave. In regards to socializing/mingling during the evening, I also have an old school trivial pursuit edition, RISK & Flip that Zombie Boardgames, as well as cards with poker chips which will be easily accessible. If you have any board games lying around like jenga, taboo, etc. feel free to bring them. It should be a great night, as I look forward to catching up with some of you as well as greeting new members of our group.
