    Diane, I have not forgotten about the Spätzle ... they are only postponed ;-)

    1 · May 24, 2013

    • Diane

      No worries, Monika. It means there will definitely be a next time! Sorry you can't make it, but hope to see you soon.

      1 · May 24, 2013

  • Bethany

    Hi Melisa -- it turns out that I'll be away from SF that day, potentially returning quite late in the evening. So it's probably safest to shift me to a no for now BUT if I get back in time, I will bring a drink (craft microbrew? tasty pinot?) and come by to say hi to everyone. Sorry for the shift in plans.

    May 23, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Melisa Lin
      That's alright, Bethany. Hope you can swing by. If not, we'll see you at another event with fantastic food :)

      May 24, 2013

  • Monika

    Hi Melissa, My apologies for the late notice, but something personal has come up and I will no longer be able to attend. Hope there will be other opportunities in the future. Have fun!

    May 24, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      There will definitely be other opportunities in the future. We'll miss you this time, Monika!

      May 24, 2013

  • Andreas B.

    I'm bringing a main, a beef stew. Sorry for the late update. There is a very nice spread of dishes!

    1 · May 23, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      No worries. Thanks for contributing a main, Andreas! I'm looking forward to it :)

      May 23, 2013

  • Nancy R.

    Afraid I can't make it this time... have Memorial Day weekend plans.

    May 23, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Our loss :[ have fun, Nancy!

      May 23, 2013

  • Troy G.

    Hi, there aren't any spots left for this event, but I would be thrilled to go! Is there any possible way to fit one more? I'm new to the Bay area and would enjoy meeting a great crowd of people in an event like this in a fun setting. I would make sure to bring a quality appetizer. :-) If this might be a possibility please let me know. Feel free to contact me @ troygreen99 at yahoo dot com.

    1 · May 19, 2013

    • Troy G.

      Hi Melisa, thanks for passing on the potluck in Dolores Park. Looking forward to meeting you guys then! Take care.

      1 · May 22, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Likewise. You too, Troy!

      May 22, 2013

  • Gina

    Melisa, will there be soup bowls and utensils at the potluck location? If not, I'll bring them.

    1 · May 22, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      We have some, but we could definitely use more. Thanks, Gina!

      May 22, 2013

    • Gina

      Ok, I'll bring more!

      1 · May 22, 2013

  • Anthony

    Sorry, I didn't realize I already had a previous commitment in Sacramento on this same day. Enjoy yourselves.

    May 21, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Too bad. Hope to catch you later, Anthony!

      May 22, 2013

  • Diane

    Hi Melisa - Is it possible to bring +2 to this event? We will totally bring another appetizer platter as well. No worries if it's full. Just thought I would ask.

    1 · May 20, 2013

    • Diane

      Yay! Thanks Melisa! Can you mark me down for a main dish as well? I will try very diligently to not give everyone food poisoning.

      1 · May 21, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Sure! Thanks, Diane. Now, we all trust you

      May 22, 2013

  • Linda L

    I can help you serve tea, Rob :-)

    1 · May 19, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      You're always so helpful, Linda!

      May 19, 2013

  • Rob

    Thanks for the invite. I am still determining whether I will be in the country at this time.... Will update as appropriate. I may have issues with Kelvins dietary restrictions as my skill at consuming food outweighs my skill at preparing it. But I might go for a main. Possibly a marinated pork tenderloin which I would normally grill but maybe an oven would work somehow. Will meditate on it a bit.

    2 · May 3, 2013

    • Rob

      Okay looks like I can make it... Not quite sure what I will make but still leaning towards a main. I will be flying back after midnight that morning so ill just figure it out the same day. I feel like I should be bringing tea but I don't know how to serve it to so many ppl.

      1 · May 19, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Sweeeeeet! We could make it in a giant pot and get some disposable hot beverage cups. Would that work for you?

      May 19, 2013

  • Linda L

    I'll bring a bottle of wine!

    1 · May 19, 2013

    • Melisa L.

      Fantastic :) thanks, Linda!

      May 19, 2013

  • Peggy

    Sorry but will not be able to make it. :-( Have fun!

    May 18, 2013
