Welcome to The Vegan Publuck, at The Pakenham Arms; a new weekend Potluck! :)
The Pakenham Arms has kindly agreed to host this on every 3rd Sunday of the month!
From 2pm till late, clearing away by 6pm, (& if you stay till late, there may be a folk music jam from 7.30pm in the evening,) join me & lots of lovely, friendly London Vegans, for a chilled, relaxed Sunday afternoon, of Homemade Vegan food & whatever drinks take your fancy!
You can arrive anytime from 2pm; I will make an announcement at 2.30pm, welcoming everyone, then I'll distribute plates & forks & let everyone start eating!
There's plenty of time to put your dish down, eat & hang out!
We may well clear away as we go, or be cleared away much earlier, but I'll start a final clear away at 5.30pm, to be completely clear for 6pm; if you're free, we may hang out till late to enjoy the live music!
There are plenty of Vegan beers/ales/ciders, on tap or in bottles, plus Spirits, including 60 different Whiskys!! (I know most spirits are Vegan friendly, but I haven't checked every last spirit they have!)
Here's a basic Vegan drinks guide for The Pakenham Arms;
>>On Tap>> Peroni, Vier (Becks), Stella Artois
>> In bottles >> Clarkshaws Hellhound, Smirnoff Ice, Wkd, Desperados, Heineken, Becks, Thatchers Rose, Old Rosie Cider (Westons), Kingstone Press, Budweiser
>>And here are the non-alchoholic options>> Becks Blue (non-alcoholic Beer), J20's Apple and raspberry, Apple & mango, Glitterberry, Orange and passionfruit; Britvic Mineral Water, Cranberry, pineapple, Orange, Tomato, Ginger ale, Tonic water, Rwhites diet lemonade, Shwepps Original Lemonade, Coke and Diet coke
Entry is Free, you just pay for your drinks, so no need to bring cartons or bottles of drink as an additional contribution. :)
The details; Anyone who knows how Sean's fantastic well established Wednesday potluck works, will know it's pretty simple; bring a dish, share recipes & meet lots of lovely people!
*Please bring a Vegan homemade dish (one per adult or teenager) ; for the sake of clarity, :) , that means, of course, NO Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs or Honey! If you don't bring a dish, I'm afraid you wont be welcome to share our food. Of course, you can buy yourself a drink if you like!
*If you really can't bring a homemade dish, or can't cook, you could bring something shop bought, but it should be a reasonable contribution--a bunch of bananas or a punnet of grapes is a little small!! :)
*As a rough rule of thumb, think about catering for 10-30 people, so e.g. 2 dozen made or bought cupcakes, 2 large pizzas, a big cous cous salad, etc... :)
*The pub can comfortably accommodate 50+ people, plus seating at the bar, & in nice weather, there's seating outside too! There's also a pool table for anyone who fancies a game! :)
*The pub is child friendly, so if you have kids, do feel free to bring them! :)
*Please provide an ingredients list, & indicate if it's Nut free or Gluten free for those with allergies or intolerances
*Please bring a serving utensil if needed for your dish
I will be providing disposable plates & cutlery, plus serviettes; please keep things as tidy as possible, it'll make clearing away that much easier for me; cheers!
And that's everything!
I look forward to welcoming you to The Vegan Publuck!
All the best,
