A Vegan Potluck Picnic (Rain or Shine!)

Rain or shine! If it's raining, we'll be behind the building at the registration desk outside of courts #5/6. Lots of dry space and tables there.

It's on! You, your guests of all ages and dogs are invited to join us at Balboa Park's "Morley Field Sports Complex" for a vegan, potluck picnic. No matter who they are, what they do or what they eat, bring them along! 

This potluck is from 12pm-2pm. We often have 15-35 people participate. Want to join us? Please read these tips and requests very carefully to insure we all have a fantastic time and come fully prepared.

Each and every adult joining us, whether they're a member or guest, should contribute something to our picnic (food or cash). 

For those of you who will be bringing food:

When you RSVP, if possible, please tell us when you might be arriving AND what you're contributing to our picnic.
We're keeping a record of what people have committed to bringing to make sure there aren't any duplicate items.

* Please bring a main dish, appetizer, side, salad or dessert for at least 20 people to enjoy that is vegan (100% plant-based; no meat, dairy, eggs or honey whatsoever). Homemade, prepared foods are preferred, but store bought contributions are certainly welcome. Otherwise, don't even think about bringing your old, rotting container of mixed greens or just two (2) servings of veggies to share with 20 people. Generous portions are expected!

* If applicable, please bring a large serving utensil for your dish.

* If possible, please bring a 3"x5" index card (or something similar) with the ingredients listed on it just in case anyone has any food allergies (or would like to know what's in it).

For those of you unable to bring food:

Not bringing food? No problem. We simply ask for a contribution of $10 (per adult) and $5 (per child) upon arrival.


1. You'll need to bring your own plates, forks, knives, spoons and cups. None will be provided.

2. You might want to bring a beach chair or two.

3. We're always located by the pool in front of the gates of tennis courts #1 and #2 near the Northeast corner of the Balboa Tennis Club.

4. There are several, free, parking lots in walking distance from our meeting spot as well as plenty of street parking.

5. Out of respect for the Meetup host/hostess and the other attendees, please keep your RSVP current and update it as necessary so we know what your true intentions will be come the day of the Meetup.

    I added beefless ground, and daiya cheese to the filling. I cooked the jalapeno with the rest of the filling instead of adding it at the end. I also added the spices after I added the kale.

    I probably won't make it down to Balboa Park on Sunday because I'll be getting my house ready for hosting an Academy Awards party starting at 4:00pm with a vegan potluck. I'm up in North County and if anyone is interested please contact me and I'll send more info. And stay tuned for Meat Out news...
