Potluck parties have an element of surprise. You get to taste foods that you would probably not make yourself. If you are looking to connect with great people, and to foster a stronger sense of community over delicious food this would be an excellent place to begin!
We will gather at least once a month in a member's home. Any member can host and suggest a meetup. Whoever is hosting the potluck will decide on a theme (French, tapas, citrus, etc.) and/or activity (movie night, pictionary, etc), and how many they are comfortable hosting.
This is definitely about 'eat, drink and be merry' but lets talk about logistics a little too. While the idea of a potluck should be a gastronomic delight it can end up being a disaster. Each event will need a variety of apps, salad, entrees, sides and desserts. When you RSVP please post a dish asap. If you find that you don't have the time to cook, no worries! Go to La Farine or Tartine to pick up some awesome breads and bring a good bottle of wine too. While we all love TJs, grabbing a bag of tortilla chips and hummus will seem a little paltry compared to the homemade lime zest cheesecake!
Lastly, flaking is highly inconsiderate! While life does get in the way of the best of plans sometimes, three no shows will mean exile;) Once the event has been filled a wait list will be started. Changing your mind with as much advance notice as possible will be greatly appreciated by all.
Everyone is invited to my home, especially families. Bon appetite!
