Tapas Pot-Luck Social

  • Feb 5, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Home of a Member

This is out 1st big "Social" - Come on out!

RSVP limit of 25, so don't miss out... RSVP today.

Let's all get together to share our favorite small bite apps or "tapas" style dish. Soups or salads are also welcome. Cook it yourself or bring a prepared item to share. The more unusual or extraordinary the better!!!

BYOB welcome. Quality beer, wine, or spirits - but please drink responsibly. Those who over indulge will have their car keys lost for them  ;-)

Date: Wednesday 2/5/14 @6:30

Location: private location in a Rio Rancho home of one of our members. You will be emailed the directions to the home a week or so prior. If you don't receive directions call Crista @[masked]-6293.

Fee: Since this is a Pot-Luck style event, the contribution will be a voluntary $2 cash, day-of-event. Prepayment is not required - But you can use Pay Pal to pay on line if it's more convenient for you. The $ will go to the dues paying organizer of this group and to supplies such as paper plates, utensils, & the like. 

I look forward to meeting more of our members!

    Despite treacherous weather, Our gracious members opened up their home and we had a good time. WAY too much food for just a few mouths to feed of course... And yes, the quesadilla's were fantastic!

    Ok, finally got around to adjusting attendance on this event. Anyone who changed their RSVPO or posted HERE that they could not make it was marked as "didn't attend". Anyone who did not update their reservation or text or call me was marked as a "no show" IF YOU DID call or text me and I just don't remember now - please comment below and I will change your status. Because I have a feeling that somewhere along the line I will need to institute a No Show policy. So I don't want you to be marked as a no-show if you did let me know. Generally, you need to LOG IN and either change your RSVP or (if it's too late and Meetup won't allow the change...) you can post your change in RSVP status in the comments section. FYI.

    Thank you for such a great evening sharing your home with us. For all of you who didn't make it....you missed the best quesadillas EVER and a few other great dishes as well!

    Totally understand, Debbie - next time we will have a plan "B" for possibly carpooling with those who have 4-wheel drive. Hope to see you soon!

    Sorry, I have to work late.

    I just talked to our host, and despite some challenging weather we are still on for tonight! We certainly understand if any of you can't be there but if you have a good four wheel drive car you got no excuse come on out. just be careful driving.

    I'm SO disappointed I can't make it tonight - just found out around noon. 2 of my goats dropped kids and I found the kids severely weak and unable to stand or eat. I've taken 3 kids into the house to warm and feed with a dropper (after a neighbor milked the mother/nanny). One has not made it - he was the worst off, and the largest. Sad. The other 2 are still on the critical list - unable to walk but are taking some milk. This would happened on one of the coldest days of course. It was 15 degrees overnight - has gotten up to 18 by mid afternoon, and is back to 16 now. I have them wrapped in towels in front of the fire place - sleeping for the time being.

    Have a great event. I made a test Caesar salad this morning and it turned out pretty good. Sorry I can't be with everyone tonight - NEXT TIME for sure.

      Our thoughts are with you and the goats. I hope the other two make it - little miracle snow babes!

    Sorry to cancel, the snow's got me. Bummed, I made Sangria and marinated Manchego with roasted peppers :-( Hopefully there will be a re-do soon. I'll even host! Enjoy everyone

    • Charlene

      So Sorry you can't make it Gina, but I know will be a problem for several members - look forward to tasting the marinated Manchego sometime!

    I just emailed out DIRECTIONS to all who are RSVP'ed as of Sunday evening 2/2. If you join later, you might need to text or call me for directions. (505)[masked]

    Charlene - are you going to make "little chilis," and will there be a prize for the best tapas? lol

    • A former member
      A former member

      Don't think so. The little chili's was a suggestion for you (hehehehe). If I come I may make that garbanzo "chili." Or maybe do a REAL seasar salad - mixing it in a bowl right in front of everyone.

      2 · January 31, 2014

    • Chris (Crista) W.

      I vote for Caesar Salad!

      February 2, 2014

  • Chris (Crista) W.

    Please BYOB on anything alcoholic. But, we have enough folks that @ $2 each my petty cash fund should allow for beverages. I'll pick up fizzy & bottled water in a few flavors.

    January 31, 2014

  • Chris (Crista) W.

    I plan to bring deviled eggs (ala "Graze" fame) and a selection of odd cheeses and crackers. I will send out the location address & direction (Rio Rancho) this weekend, by Monday night at the latest.

    If anyone wants to trek to Taos, I have a lovely hacienda with enough room to sleep 6-8.

    I don't usually do much during the week. I'm looking forward to mixing it up and meeting everyone!

    I love Tapas! What do you think about having this event at the new restaurant Mas' at Hotel Andaluz?

    1 · January 2, 2014

    • Angelic G.

      Understood, it was just an idea if a private location didn't arise. There didn't seem to be a whole of suggestions, glad one came up in Rio Rancho.

      January 12, 2014

    • Chris (Crista) W.

      Thanks, Angelic. I umderstand & didnt mean to be snappy - My reply was overly CAPITALIZED... lets do a Tapas Social for the group at a restaurant this summer?

      January 19, 2014

  • Chris (Crista) W.

    We have been offered lovely HOME in Rio Rancho for this next event! Once you RSVP, and as the event gets closer..., I will send folks an email with the directions.

    January 11, 2014

  • Chris (Crista) W.

    Boy I love the idea of going to taos, but I think it's a little impractical for this group. We'd all have to spend the night and go skiing the next day :-) Thanks for your offer Gail! Anybody else want to suggest a space that more conveniently located?
