Have a Vegan BBQ Potluck!

  • May 26, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I have a vegan grill, and I want to share it with you this Memorial Day!

 *If you can't make it after all please change your RSVP as a courtesy to people on the wait list!

This is a potluck, please post what you will bring to grill, or accompany the grilled foods. Please bring your own plate/bowl, silverware, cup we won't have enough for everyone.

We're gonna make some ice cream and hopefully have a sundae bar for dessert!!

We encourage carpools and public transit.  We're not near BART but you can bus, and we are a few blocks from Park Blvd.

    Very nice to meet many of you yesterday.

    I host a vegetarian potluck at my house in Oakland once a month. Some dishes have dairy but most are vegan.

    I was in tracy last night and am now stuck out here w a flat tire. There's no one to drive me in and no bart access out here. I'm really disappointed that I'm going to miss meeting everyone and my apologies for the last minute canceling.

      Great, Michelle. Thanks for being so gracious.

  • dawn

    Just was added and I'm a terrible cook. Thoughts on what's needed at this point?

    May 26, 2014

    • Laura

      Hummus, salsa, or guacamole with veggies and/or chips is always good. Or some bottles of juice. Or buns for vegan sausage and burgers.

      May 26, 2014

    • dawn

      Perfect. I'll bring hummus and either chips or veggies!

      2 · May 26, 2014

  • Michelle

    If anyone has pitchers we could borrow that would be awesome, we could use some more!

    May 26, 2014

  • Michelle

    Alright I am letting everyone in who RSVP'd by 11 am today. I hope to see you this afternoon.

    May 26, 2014

    It's going to be hot, remember to put on/bring sunscreen!

    Hello everyone,

    I'll bring a pea soup. See you soon!

    May 26, 2014

  • Julie M.

    Dear Michelle,

    I completely understand your position but I also wanted to speak up for the wait-listers. I've hosted a number of meetup potlucks and there are always fewer people who show up than who say they will. In any case I've made a huge pot of rice and barley cooked with bay leaves and vegetable broth all ready to go if you change your mind.

    2 · May 26, 2014

  • Michelle

    WAIT LIST: To address Suzanne's question below, please do not attend if you are on the wait list unless you are moved to the regular list. We have reiterated that it's super important to change your RSVP to no if you cannot attend so hopefully we can avoid flaking. This is the first event I've held of this size and if it goes well I will definitely consider altering the size limit next time. Thank you for understanding.

    I'm bringing vegan sausages.

    I'm fighting off a sinus infection but plan to come and have BBQ tempeh ready to go! Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    May 25, 2014

  • larry

    Just got in off wait list. No time for cooking. How about wine? Other drinks? Vegan ice cream?

    May 25, 2014

    • Michelle

      I have the vegan ice cream handled. You could bring some vegan drinks. Salad?

      May 25, 2014

  • Roberto

    Thanks Michelle for opening your place for us. Bringing Marinated Corn for the grill, Farinata (Italian flat soft bread made with chickpea flour), Eggplant/Chickpea/Zucchini Tagine (Moroccan) and Avocado-Lemon pudding desert (very lemony). All vegan. All home-made. I’m also bringing recipe printouts for people to take home, to spread the vegan way of cooking and I encourage other member-cooks to do the same if possible.

    1 · May 25, 2014

  • Suzanne

    Can people on the waiting list come! I really want to join in and attend! I know in a lot of meet-up groups, not everyone who RSVP's actually attends and the wait listers miss out on a spot!!
    Thanks

    2 · May 25, 2014

  • Lindsay M.

    Do you need to have a ticket printed out to show when you go to the meetup?

    May 25, 2014

    • Michelle

      No you don't need a a ticket.

      May 25, 2014

  • Steve B.

    Carpooling is good, but if possible walk/bike/transit first! There are frequent buses on Park Blvd. and MacArthur, directly connecting to Montclair, downtown Oakland and north Oakland, and with a transfer or via BART to lots more places.

    I'm biking, and will bring a couple folding chairs in my trailer.

    2 · May 24, 2014

    • Julie

      Don't forget the BART is on a Sunday schedule :-) I just wanted to offer a ride especially if anyone is bringing food that is hard to carry on a bike or public transit :-)

      2 · May 25, 2014

  • Julie

    Would anyone like to carpool from Berkeley? I don't mind driving :)

    May 24, 2014

  • Jeff L.

    Events is full...so any others want to meet up and go out today Saturday for a hike at Redwoods at noon (3-4 hrs) followed by dinner to a vegan (friendly) restaurant or just the food after? text me 9257885838. Thanks...Have an awesome day!

    May 24, 2014

  • Lindsay M.

    Either bringing tofu egg salad or chickpea salad for sandwiches, crackers etc.. (or both)

    May 23, 2014

  • Kira

    We will bring banana bread and likely some fruit and/or fruit salad :)

    May 22, 2014

  • Lindsay M.

    I just realized I'm on the wait list.. oops *dumb* new to this and didn't check first. :P

    May 21, 2014

    • Michelle

      You'll probably be moved to the regular list, 2 people were already added today.

      May 21, 2014

    • Lindsay M.

      Awesome!

      May 22, 2014

  • Steve B.

    I'll bring marinated veggies and tofu for grilling, plus some cooked whole grains for the balance thing..

    May 21, 2014

  • Lindsay M.

    Not sure what I'll bring yet (I'll get back within the next couple days), Excited to come :)

      1 · May 20, 2014

    I could do a vegan and gluten free cake for dessert and perhaps a cold quinoa salad. How does that sound?

    May 14, 2014

  • Natalie T.

    Michelle, I would like to bring a potato salad and lemonade :)

    1 · May 12, 2014

  • Natalie T.

    Dear Michelle & Laura, How long will the bbq last? May not be able to come right at 1:30. Thanks!
