It's time to have another potluck to meet some old and new veg*n friends! WHAT TO BRING: • A beverage/dish to share - Everything for this potluck must be vegan. Gluten-Free/Oil-Free/Raw dishes are always welcome but optional. • Please follow our Potluck Rules (https://www.meetup.com/ChicagoVeg/pages/Potluck_Rules/) with an exception that only vegan food is acceptable for this potluck. Bag of chips and a spread is not an option. Please be more creative and spend at minimum $10 on your dish. You are welcome to check out Recipes of the meals at our potlucks (https://www.meetup.com/ChicagoVeg/boards/thread/7521957/10/) where people have shared some recipes from our previous potlucks. • Please use the Conversation section on the event page to let others know what you plan to bring. • Please check what other people will bring and specify what dish you plan to bring so all of us won't bring potato salad! • The food should be ready to eat as the room is not available for any electrical devices to be plugged in. • Although we will supply some, please bring your own compostable or washable plates, bowls, cups, silverware, napkins (to be more eco-friendly). • The expectation to have a great time!
