Food as Love: potluck and discussion

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • There are only two acts where we take that of someone else into ourselves for pleasure and and connection: eating and sex. It's no wonder that they are so closely entwined in our collective minds.

    Some families feed each other instead of saying that they love each other; some people feed themselves to fill an emotional gap...and some people just love food.

    Let's have a potluck--bring your favorite food--and conversation. How are food and love linked for you?

    Please suggest dates and locations that would work for you.

    For the "Food as Love: potluck and discussion" is there any date or time/location this is set for? Let me know, thank you

    My life is becoming very busy now, but to ensure that everything for another group meetup will be held in the Spring-Summer, I would like at least a month's notice. I am also curious to ask if there are any other places on the internet (video intro on YouTube, personal private website, Facebook page...etc) from the host that might show what successful past meetings were like, who was there, and how it started?

    February 24, 2016

  • Trish B.

    Hi Everyone! WOW! my apologies! Not sure why I didn't get any notice of these comments! I'm going to be activating the group again. Thanks for your patience! We will be more on top of it in the future!!! More soon!

    February 7, 2016

  • Tim R.

    Sure there must be a place to meet inside somewhere. I would have loved to attended the last planned meeting in Casco but I had a film shoot to oversee. :(

    November 12, 2015

    No it never happen...
    Event organizers were not on top of this for a Meetup.
    I have had other groups here...
    Now with cold weather the location is not available.
    Will have to see what spring brings!

    November 9, 2015

  • John

    Did this event ever happen? Is it going to happen?

    November 4, 2015

  • peg

    Yes one or two have said yes.
    But I am not opening my area and just stopping my life for 4 people.
    Plus it is up to Event organizers to do something with this not me.
    I will be gone until Wed night.
    Plans need to be done by then.
    And if anyone is coming other then the few that have said yse let me know please.

    September 22, 2015

    • Ken R.

      I really want it to happen, but I can't get any response from friends down around Southern Maine Community College who have their own transportation to travel up there with! I hate the fact that every effort I make no matter how far in advance I inform others, I am always alone, but I will still give it until Friday to see if I can convince someone to attend, and if the decision to not hold the event by lack of people going is to happen, I hope that decision will be made before Friday when if someone will want to travel up there with me for it.

      September 22, 2015

    • Leela S.

      Well. Looks like we don't have enough interest. Thanks for the offer of hosting, Peg.

      September 24, 2015

  • peg

    Well I have not heard much from anyone about this gathering.
    Not sure if it is on or off.
    So I am not the organizer here.
    So I have other things that I can do.
    Do not helping with this.
    But I am not doing it all.
    So I guess unless this is planed more I am going to cancel for this week-end.

    Hello!
    So it looks like Sunday the 27th is the Date we are going with. We could have a start time as early as 11am if anyone wanted to come and take a hike.
    Maybe have the Potluck at 3 or 4pm.
    That would still give us light to eat before the Sun goes down.
    It is a Full Moon and a Eclipse that night.
    We can start the Fire out back in the Big Pit.
    Bring a Lawn chair.
    My Circle is 300ft round.
    Beautiful View and very private.

    Have a Grill and cooking stove and sink in the out door kitchen. And Water.

      Found the location on my phone maps, but it is a bit far and costly for public transportation, but I still hope when the time comes to find someone to invite who has a vehicle and available I forgot when again out of all the messages, I hope I can come and maybe bring a potluck dish.

    Just saw this thread - I can come also! Sounds fun - well done, Peg for organizing this!

    1 · September 11, 2015

  • peg

    Yes Sunday the 27th would work too.
    That is a full Moon night.
    We just need a date to go by so we can set aside a time for everyone to come.
    So I will set this date aside for this meet up group!

    SO WHO IS COMING!!

    September 8, 2015

    • Ken R.

      Sunday the 27th, I will need transportation, for no buses run that day, and working on if I can bring a friend along. Please update me on the location of this.

      September 10, 2015

  • kavi

    Have courage Peg, it can be hard to schedule on meetup.com in the beginning and then only half of the people who confirm coming will come.. it's only regular meet ups that meet at least once a month that build a following . I would love to come to the countryside,I u u so I am for it, if it's on...it's a parenting weekend for me and my 12 year old son, but I could leave him with his grandmother...let's see who else confirms, but I would, Kavi

    September 8, 2015

  • peg

    So the month is ticking on.
    So talking to Meetup leaders here.
    Did you want to make the 26th the date of this meet up?
    I have had other people reaching out to me for events here also.
    So If the date is one that you want to do a Event here please let me know.
    Other wise I will let others plan a event here.
    Thanks

    September 7, 2015

    • Leela S.

      I can do the 26th evening (I have a commitment during the day)...it sounded like people wanted to do a daytime event though? Am I wrong about that?

      September 8, 2015

    • Leela S.

      What do folks think about Sunday the 27th?

      September 8, 2015

  • peg

    The Saturday 29th is the full moon..

    So are we talking a day or a overnight camping?
    Or a day and a 4pm meal time?

    I have camped up to 82 people here in Tents.
    35 horse trailers.

    My outdoor cooking area has a sink and grill and propane stove top.Covered...
    Potluck would work.
    Dave Brower (from here) has left his 2 screen tents here that we could set up for more shade.

    The bus runs out here from the Portland area.
    So we could set up a pick-up from the drop off location at the Naples Legion were they drop off.

    We just need to figure out a plan as to what it is the group wants to do.

    Lots of hiking trails out back. I ride my horse out back.
    30 miles of trails. So we could also do a group hike too for those that want to...

    Just let me know what the group wants to do!

    September 2, 2015

    • peg

      Once I know for sure that we are having event I do not mind giving out location.

      September 2, 2015

    • peg

      But this is still to me in conversation mod.

      September 2, 2015

  • peg

    I meant the 26th.September. Looking still at Aug.
    Sorry about that. Full Moon is on the So it could be the 26th Saturday or the 27th Sunday.
    I have the 19th and 20th open too.

    But please chose a date soon!
    I am a Event area for horse groups and they do day and overnights out of here this time of the year.
    This time of year it is cooler and 20 and 30 mile ride outs are common.
    I have 2 groups looking for dates right now.

    September 2, 2015

    Hello,
    I have a large location...
    A outdoor Event area with a out door kitchen.
    Lots of room for parking and hiking and fun!
    Also a rural private location.
    Let me know if this would work.
    I am in the Lake Region area

    • Ken R.

      Keep me updated, for I want to attend this, and need time to plan transportation, and might invite some college friends as well. Until then, I am keeping busy with my involvement at SMCC in South Portland that might prevent me from going.

      September 2, 2015

    • Leela S.

      Casco could work if people are willing and able to travel. for this meet up let's plan to keep our clothes on...shall we look at the last weekend in September?

    Hi, when and where will this event take place? To answer the above statement question, I communicate better, and have more focused coordinated energy after eating to be a better person to show how much love I have to share.

    July 6, 2015

  • ronnie g.

    I'm interested in meeting. This is my first time and would love to get my feet wet and share.

  • William E Higgins J.

    I can reach the Portland area from Biddeford where I live. My favorite food to make is chicken marsala. For a number of years I have had a lack of sexual intimacy, because the woman I loved most in my life was not attracted to me. I shared unconditional love with her, felt some back, but I didn't want her to feel what I did for her was conditional on what she did to or for me. In the 3 to 4 years prior to that, I had been highly intimate at the end of a difficult marriage (12 years and 4 months long ). When I say highly intimate I mean over 30 women sexual intercourse, and more than that sharing intimacy over a telephone line. I guess when i had a lot of loving, I was more healthy, when not, now and during the marriage, I have gained weight.

    February 11, 2015

    Please let me know when the first meet up is. I am new to the group and would love to learn how I can be a better boyfriend.

    Thursday can work -Friday night is best- but a weeknight will work given good notice. We won't be available next weekend (our anniversary).

    Wednesday or Thursday nights are good for me. Looking forward to meeting y'all!

    July 9, 2014

  • Dave B.

    Ok, I'm back. Let start a conversation. What would most people like? Weekends in summer are usually tight, but with some notice plan-able. Week nights are a good option since we have extended day light. I can pick a few and let people vote? Send me some suggestions. Use message rather than this all group forum if you prefer.
