Come and experience the grandeur, the spectacle, the wonder of the world's most succulent and tantalizing foods. You'll discover new and creative dishes, consisting of savory and satisfying flavors, from foodstuffs found only in Nature. Get Real. Have Fun. Enjoy Life. And Living Foods! Hosted by George and Peggy Nungesser.

Socializing begins around 6:30pm - 7pm, and food at about 7pm - 7:30pm. Please be generous and respectful of others by bringing a vegan RAW food dish, or a salad (fruits, veggies, nuts, spices), or a fruit/veggie platter for six (or more) people.

This month's theme is Italian RAW Food, and it's also Bernando LaPallo's 112th Birthday celebration! Bernando has long been a regular at these potlucks, and he's become increasingly famous, worldwide, as he's been touting heathy living for his longevity, youthful appearance (for his age) and his spry mental acuity. Bernando is an avid reader, and he stays fit with healthy eating and walking. He has a business and is traveling, giving speeches, and working on his second book, "Beyond 100 - How to Live Well into Your Second Century"! This book will be released in the future, but is not quite ready for the potluck. However, you can get his first book, Age Less, Live More: How to Live to 107 and Beyond. Please join us for this momentous occasion!

NOTE: The food is usually very good here, and this event typically attracts an older, more of a conservative-type crowd (with the exception of many of our members in attendance, their friends, and a handful of others). There is a speaker each month, and the speaker may 1)be interesting/informative (depending on the listener); 2)he/she (sometimes) may be promoting a healthful or quasi-healthful product/service for purchase; and 3)may also promulgate religious propaganda during the course of any given talk. Some of our (former) members have complained about the content of these lectures, especially (when applicable) the religious overtones of some of them. (And the fact that the VEGphoenix did not warn them, in advance, of the nature of some of the talks...we have no control over the content of them. Nor do we sanction any of the products/services discussed that might be promoted in any of the talks.) If you're sensitive to such things, I suggest you make yourself very scarce at that time. There's always safe refuge somewhere on the property where people gather away from the action.
