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 bring 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 Christmas foods, and there will be a White Elephant gift exchange for those that bring wrapped White-Elephant gifts. A "White Elephant" gift is anything you don’t want or need that you were going to give away or throw away anyway. As the saying goes, "One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!" No need to spend any money at all.
OR – Simply wrap a piece of fruit or vegetable as your White Elephant gift – like an apple, banana, yam, or even raw nuts and seeds – any edible raw food is fair game, as long as it can be wrapped up!
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 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. - Steve
