Pool Party & Cookout

  • Aug 10, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's eat, play, soak up the sun and float in the pool! We have a fire pit for cooking up some vegan dogs, burgers, etc. Bring some grub and outdoor games. Oh, don't forget your sunscreen, towel and swimsuit. This event is a weather permitting one, so the date may change.

Children are welcome as long as they are carefully supervised in and around the pool.  Otherwise they can run around the yard all they want!  It's a fenced-in back yard so it's safe.  

Our house doesn't have a number, so look for a brick ranch with a flower garden near the street on the left.  Park on the street.  Come around back via the driveway.  That's where we'll be!

Text or call if you need anything[masked] or[masked]-6887.

    Thanks again Libby and Matt for all your hard work getting your home ready for us! That really was a fun party and an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The pool, food, and company were all fantastic. Hope to see you guys again soon. :)

    Thank you everyone that came to the party and brought delicious things to eat! I'm sorry to those that weren't able to make it. It was really nice to see some familiar faces and meet new ones. I had a great time. I hope you did too. It's nice to hang out with vegans and meet the vegan curious too. I hope we can do it again.

    Also, I'm collecting household goods for a vegan friend of mine and her 5 year-old daughter who is escaping an abusive marriage. You can read about it and donate here http://www.gofundme.com/cnfg7g. If you can take a minute to look around your house and see if there's anything extra or that you're not using and bring it to the cookout. She needs pretty much everything!

    Here is a list of what we have so far: Watermelon, stuff to make smores, veg burgers, lots of booze, beer, a bit of soda, plates, napkins, etc. My sister is bringing veg dog and burger buns. I'll probably make a garden salad too, which means whatever is available from my garden cut up in a bowl.

    August 9, 2014

  • Libby

    Ok, I'm sorry I'm changing the date on you again. The weather forecast for this Sunday has changed drastically since I checked yesterday and it seems we are good to go. The backup date will still be the 17th.
    IMPORTANT: Please bring a towel if you plan to swim. Children are welcome, but please make sure they are watched at the pool at all times. Our house doesn't have a number, so look for the brick ranch with a flower garden in the front on the left side. Feel free to park on the street.

    Can't make it on Aug 17 Coz it's my daughter's birthday.

    August 7, 2014

  • Libby

    The forecast for Sunday is thunderstorms and a 70% chance of rain. I've postponed it to next Sunday in hopes of good weather. Please update your RSVP accordingly.
    Thank you and sorry, but I can't control the weather. Wish I could.

      Hey Libby, Sorry you got rotten weather! I think the 17th is the nationwide day of protest about the rabbit meat at Whole Foods. They've been talking about it at work party. I know Kendall canceled the Virginia Beach event because they took it off the shelves, but I think a bunch of people are still going to travel up to the Richmond location. I don't know what Tony and I are doing yet, so I'll let you know ASAP. :)

      August 7, 2014

    • Libby

      Ok, Amy. Thank you for letting me know.

      August 7, 2014

  • Libby

    Some of you have asked for ideas on what to bring, so here is a list. Once you've decided, it is super helpful if you post it up here so we all don't bring the same thing. Veg dogs, veg burgers, buns, relish, veganaise, watermelon, potato salad, pasta salad, soda, chips, dip, beer, juice, dessert. Don't limit yourself to this list though as anything goes really.

    This post may appear twice but I can't see it so I'm posting it again. The forecast for this Sunday is thunderstorms and a 70% chance of rain. I'm hoping for better weather next Sunday and I've changed the date until then. Please update your RSVPs accordingly. Thank you.

  • Lacy

    Hi, I am moving to Norfolk from Mississippi at the beginning of August. I don't know anyone in the area and would love to get plugged in somewhere. Before I say YES to going to this pool party (which seems pretty cool!), what do I need to do? Are there membership dues, an official application, food to bring, etc.? Did I ask enough questions? ;)

    July 24, 2014

    • Libby

      I Lacy. Nothing special you need to do. There is a small membership fee that you can give to Natalie when you see her or pay it on here. Just show up and have fun!

      August 7, 2014

    • Libby

      Hi Lacy, Nothing special that you need to do. Just show up and have fun! There is a $2 membership fee that you can give to Natalie when you see her at a potluck or you can pay online. Looking forward to meeting you!

    I will be out of town, and will not make it back on time, I can't believe I'm going to miss this.

    August 5, 2014

  • Matt

    I'll be gone on a climbing trip all weekend so I don't think I'll make it back in time.

  • Lucy P.

    I would love to bring some thing, drinks? How do I pay up dues?

    July 6, 2014

    • Libby

      We'll have assorted liquor, beer and soda. If there's something special you like, feel free to bring it. A fruit or veggie platter works too.

      1 · July 18, 2014

    • Libby

      I think Natalie will be there to collect dues. I owe them too.

    what can i bring? I know this is a pot luck kind of thing.

    June 9, 2014

    • Libby

      Hi Carol. Anything goes. When you think of summer cookouts, what comes to mind? Growing up we had hotdogs, burgers, salads, chips and dip, fruit and ice cream, but that's just from my little part of the world. I'm interested to see what people bring that reminds them of childhood summer cookouts.
