VEGAN SUMMER BARBECUE COOKOUT / POTLUCK !!!

Joe has been kind enough to host our  Vegan Summer Cookout Potluck at his home at 4334 north Hazel Street

"You need to buzz my name "Lystad" to come in. Sign in at the front desk and go to the fourth floor." -Joe

 

As always we adhere to the strict definition of vegan so everyone can be included, this means no dairy, eggs, honey or animal products of any kind. If you can label the ingredients, that would be even better! :)

Hi Vegan Nerds,


We are so excited to announce this cookout Joe has arranged for us to use the roof top of his building to enjoy some fun in the sun!! Let's get our grillin' on with vegan burgers, hotdogs, potato salad and more, all those summer foods we all LOVE.

 

"The deck on top of my building is open. It has three grills, a swimming pool, and tennis courts and enough space to fill a city block. So bring your towel, some food to eat, and a tennis racket or two. Afterward, we can walk to the beach." - Joe


So the more the merrier at this event!!! Even if you've never been to a Meetup event this is a great place to start, we love new faces!! :)

We are so excited to see you there, any questions or comments please chime in below! 

-Carole

    Easily one of the best birthdays ever!!! Thank you all so much for hanging out and bringing delicious vegan food to share. I will post the recipe for the Peach Slaw with Crispy Tofu if anyone wants it. I especially enjoyed Mauricio's Bolivian empanadas, Carlo's criminally good cinnamon rolls, Achyuta's SPICY potato salad, and Haz's yummy pb cookies. Thanks again to Joe for hosting us and making pizza!

    It is a joy to be among you. <3

    Anyone is planning to bring fuel for the bbq? Maybe someone can call it and bring coal instead of food. Is there anything specific for the BBQ to now @Joe ?

    June 1, 2013

    • Carole

      well we usually make our own because carlo loves to bake, but today we are running a little short on time so we will probably buy some. I dont have a special brand, I just read the packages I'm familiar with all of the animal ingredients and derivatives so when i get them i'll let you know which brand I go with so you can know for the future :)

      June 2, 2013

    • Achyuta A.

      Cool. Thanks. I'm going to look for vegan burger buns on the way over!

    Hi Everyone! Just to let you know that the weather is supposed to get nicer by the afternoon, but incase it doesn't Joe has said we can move the festivities into his apartment :) The show must go on!!

      Sorry I did't get the location out sooner, I'm new to organizing and only just figured out how to send you all emails, lol

  • Mauricio

    Looks like I can make it! I'm not much of a cook myself, but with some help I'll be bringing vegan "empanadas" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salte%C3%B1as) and my famous chocolate cake.

    Will the potluck be doubling as a birthday celebration?

    I don't drink alcohol. Can apple cider count as something I brought to eat/drink? Or how about spinach soup? (I've been wanting to make that)

    May 31, 2013

    • Carole

      Hey Achyuta, you can bring apple cider and whatever you like , Just remember that it is outdoors and we will have some plates and forks but we wont be supplying bowls and spoons but if you want to i'm all for it :)

      June 1, 2013

    • Achyuta A.

      Alrighty. Thanks.

    Hey all, we will be bringing some sriracha carrot slaw and potato and greens salad

    1 · June 1, 2013

  • Joseph

    Some info. The pool is being worked on. I'm not expecting it will be open unfortunately. Not sure how much of a problem this is because it will only be in the 60's. Anyway, thought I should mention it.

  • Yoav

    I am MAYBE. How late will this go? If the weather is good, I'll be playing volleyball until ~7, so could get there 7:30-8.

    May 28, 2013

    • Carole

      If theweather is good and we're having fun it will go all night , haha, the roof will close at 10 but several people i've talked to wont be able to make it till 7 or 730. we made the time earlier so that if people want they can soak up some sun but hopefully we will be going strong until much later!

      1 · May 28, 2013

    • Yoav

      Thanks for clarifying. Will TRY to make it.

      May 29, 2013

  • Lori

    • Carole

      WHAT!?!?! Its Carlo's birthday too on Sunday!!! That is so awesome, I would love to see you guys, no problem about the plus one I will plus one for her in my heart LOL!

  • James

    Really depends on location - I'll be a couple hours late.

    May 28, 2013

    • Carole

      Hey James, we aren't going to release the exact location until a couple days before but it is near near N Sheridan and W Montrose and we have some people who are coming late so that is totally fine I think the roof closes at 10 but we are probably still going to be hanging out and we might move the party if we're still having fun at that time :)
