  • AVVA Vegan Potluck dinner for February

    Affinity at Round Rock

    UPDATE as of FEB 1: Due to an undisclosed scheduling conflict with another group meeting in the same facility, we're postponing this potluck until February 15th, so the 3rd Saturday instead of the 2nd. We do apologize for any inconvenience. Everything else stays the same. To all our members in north Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, etc... please join us for our monthly vegan potluck for February! This month we'll be hosted by Stephanie at Affinity of Round Rock, east of I-35 and just south of University Blvd. This is a little further north of where she used to live, but it's right off of I-35 (at the IKEA exit) so it's easier to get to. She's arranged for us to be able to use her facility's family dining room, so there'll be plenty of space. Our potlucks are relaxed and informal, we welcome everyone, especially new vegetarians and vegans, and the "veg-curious". And it's free for anyone to attend. All attendees must bring a VEGAN dish that can serve 8. Couples can choose to bring two dishes or an extra-large dish. Please try not to bring just a snack like chips or nuts. You also should bring a serving utensil, as well as your own plate, utensils, and beverage. Bring your recipe or a list of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities.

  • AVVA Vegan Christmas Day potluck gathering

    1808 Inverness Blvd

    For anyone who doesn't have plans on Christmas Day and would like a group of veg-friendly folks to gather with... please join us at Bill Sander's home in south Austin. We'll start at 3:30, but if you do have other gatherings earlier or later in the day and want to swing by our gathering later than 3:30, that's OK. This will be kind of a "rolling" potluck as people come in later with new food. However the limit for attendees will be a max of 35. This is a "regular" vegan potluck, no requirements other than being vegan. Bill requests ADULTS ONLY for this potluck. We are a warm and welcoming group, open to all, especially first time attendees, new vegetarians and vegans, the "veg-curious"... You don't have to be vegetarian at all, we welcome omnivores. Our potlucks are free for anyone to attend, you don't have to be an AVVA member. All attendees must bring a VEGAN dish that can serve 8. Couples can choose to bring two dishes or an extra-large dish. Please try not to bring just a snack like chips or nuts. You also should bring a serving utensil, as well as your own plate, utensils, and beverage. We will provide forms for your dishes so you can easily check off any allergens that your dish may include.

  • 2019 Holiday Potluck and White Elephant Party!

    home of Dan Stasiak

    It's the return of the annual AVVA Holiday Potluck! Come enjoy some great, festive vegan food, along with old and new vegetarian friends and camaraderie. We will once again be doing a "white elephant" gift exchange too! Read below for the rules of the potluck and of the game. All attendees must bring a VEGAN dish that can serve 8. Couples can choose to bring two dishes or an extra-large dish. Please try not to bring just a snack like chips or nuts. You also should bring a serving utensil, as well as your own plate, utensils, and beverage. Bring your recipe or a list of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities. As always, our events are family- and children-friendly, but we do ask that parents keep their children supervised. Also RSVP early - this is a popular event and we are limiting the number of guests, at least at first. (Please note in the comments how many children you're bringing.) How the White Elephant gift exchange works: Each guest contributes one (or two) gifts to the game, and ultimately each guest walks away with a different gift from the game. The theme for the gifts is recycling, so we seriously encourage you to bring something you were given before and can now "regift", or something you used to use but someone else could use more, etc. You shouldn't have to spend money on a gift, but if you do, it'd be $10 max. All gifts should be wrapped, but not labeled to reflect the sender or a recipient. Everyone will draw a number to determine the order of gift choosing. The person who drew #1 chooses a gift from the pile, and then shows it to everyone. Then it's the next person's turn. They can either steal an item previously unwrapped or open a new gift from the pile. If a person's gift is stolen, that person can immediately unwrap a new gift or steal a different person's gift (no stealing a gift back). The process works its way around the room until the last person has gone, at which point the very first person to pick out a gift gets one last chance to steal. Stealing is limited to twice, so that the event won't take too long. Also, you can't steal back a gift on behalf of someone else, like if you're in a couple or came as a friend. Owners of opened gifts must keep them visible for all to see and hold them up when requested. No hiding gifts under your chair! If you are bringing a child or children with you, please make sure the gift(s) they bring is something that would, in fact, work for a child. We separate the children’s gifts into their own pile, so that they don’t wind up drawing an adult’s gift (and an adult potentially getting a child’s gift).
