Annual Spring Potluck!

This will take place outdoors in Battery Park near Poets House. Will provide a cell phone number for you to text upon arrival.

 



Bring in your favorite Vegan dish and share with fellow MeetUp members. Heck, eating out can get expensive so if price has been holding you back from joining past MeetUps then join us for this afternoon of fun.

 

 

 


We've heard to much about your boyfriend/ girlfriend/ spouse/ kids/ dog and would love to meet him/her/them.

It's potluck time which means...
- budget friendly ( no need to spend more than $5)
- inspirational (you ladies have some crazy recipes)
- educational ( a great opportunity to discover new foods)
- delicious (there's always leftovers)
- freaking fun!

How it works:

Everyone is asked to bring a dish to serve 6 people (you can totally cut 3 sandwiches in half which makes 6 servings).

If you aren't into cooking, why not pick up some ready made cookies, salad, or other prepackaged vegan friendly food. You can also bring a blanket for others to sit on.

Because we will be outdoors we can not display alcohol bottles ( we don't care what's in your water bottle).

It's totally okay to bring eco friendly plates or eating utensils (I'll have a bunch of stuff, but the less stuff to throw away the better).

If you aren't a cook and don't want to buy anything, then simply show up, grab a plate, and pay $5. The $5 will go to a vegan friendly charity that the group agrees upon (in the past we've donated to Farm Sanctuary).

We do not have a limit on the number of attendees for this event (legally more than 25 people requires a permit, but we can just have two separate picnic spots if we really have to) so I'm hoping that this will be our biggest turnout yet!

Hey, mom members, stop stressing about a babysitter and bring those kids. Is your other half jealous of your food adventures? Well, bring them. Been trying to get your friend to go Vegan? Bring your friend. The more the merrier.


1 week in advance we will email everyone who has RSVP'd yes to find out what dish you are bringing (last spring there were a lot of cookies).

    Recipes!
    Hoping to score the potato salad recipe, the zuchinni sauce recipe, biscuits and gravy recipe, and the cheesecake recipes. I get so lazy in the kitchen, but I think of all the yummy food I tried, I might convince myself to try making these dishes. Maybe.

      Thanks Heather! Here's the recipe for the Zucchini Pesto (it's from Blissful Bites by Christy Morgan):

      Blend together, serve over spiralized zucchini:
      1 cup fresh mint (I've made it with basil too and they are both delicious)
      1 cup fresh parsley
      1 cup cashews, soaked and drained
      1/2 cup nutritional yeast
      2 tablespoons tamari (or Bragg's Liquid Aminos)
      1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
      1 tablespoon maple syrup
      Salt and pepper to taste
      2 tablespoons water to get it moving

    Alright, a few of us have arrived and we've moved to a nice shady spot between two trees. If you cross the street from Poet's House and go a bit to the right, you should find us! We have a white blanket and I'm wearing a big flowery dress.

    Definitely can't make this one. My mother in law is on her way to my house. :( Bummed. See you at the next one.

  • Rae

    Oh no! I thought i put this in for 1:30pm. Clearly i'm going to be late. Please meet in front of poets house and after 10 minutes go find a spot on the lawn. Post your location or a cell number so everyone can find the group. Sorry

    I really wanted to come to this because I thought between all these performances this week I would be able to handle my papers and finals for next week as well and just didn't manage. I don't think I'll make it this time, can't wait for future potlucks!

    May 16, 2014

  • RSS

    Oh no. Now I'm not sure if I can come. My mother in law may be visiting from out of town. :(

    Hi, I'm bringing something sweet

    May 15, 2014

  • Jasmina

    I work on Sunday till 2pm in the Bronx. If by any chance I get done in time to make it I may just come to give you all hugs but I really doubt it - hence keeping myself as no (chances of me making it are less than 10%). I do hope we have another one of these in the summer :D

    May 14, 2014

  • Katja

    I'm planning on making something savory.

  • Gabriele G.

    This will be my first meetup with the group. I'm looking forward to it and planning to make potato salad. Seems like a nice intro to summer dish?

    You may have already assumed, I'll bring something sweet

    May 13, 2014

  • Rae

    We'll have at least 2 more potlucks this year so hopefully so if you can't make this won't don't worry, there will be more!

    I will be in LA for my boyfriend's sister's wedding so I can't make it. Sounds like a great day.

    March 16, 2014

  • Jasmina

    I wish - sadly that is the last day of my spring Sunday classes. I do hope we have more potlucks later.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
