Western CT Potluck - October 4, 2008

Who would be interested in coming to my house for a potluck?  Danbury CT is easily reachable via car off of I84, Metro North Train and even Amtrak.

The date is October 4th and anyone is welcome from 10am till 10pm (or later if prior arrangements have been made, like a pup tent!). 

My kitchen is not huge but I have enough entertainment area that even if it rains we can still have quite a crowd. 

Menu Ideas:
Cupcakes of course!

Attendees:
KMK
NoIllusions and Boy
baypuppy and posse
Lucid Anne?
RabidChild?
Lumpy?

I love that idea!  A secret "Santa" type of thing! (and by Santa I mean St. Vegan, of course.....)  It could be something really small and silly too.  Nothing fancy. 
I'm excited!  :)

Oh man, an Unbirthday vegan gift exchange party.  That is fabulous!

Teh Rulez: 
Gifts are to be under $15.  Vegan is a requirement!  Handmade gets extra cupcakes or scoops of soy cream.

When people arrive they will get a number.  The presents will be numbered randomly and given out before cupcakes and soy cream.

Yay!

You could do it like that Christmas present game! Everyone brings a present, you make numbers for how many presents/people you have, everyone draws, then #1 picks a present, opens it, #2 can pick a present or take #1s..and so on. We had a rule that a gift could only be taken three times. So, if you had taken the good gift from someone,and you were the third to take it....yay! (not that they all won't be good...)

$15 dollars? HUMM  ^-^

i told cammers and he seemed less than impressed. i guess he isn't into AWESOME (again, he isn't into gifting that much)

i will have to find/make something AWESOME. so are we thinking like gifty gifts here, or like baked goods? who knows?

i like it when you get a number and you get to pick and steal and swap and stuff. excitement! i always end up with the lamest thing.  ;)b

This will make me feel grossly inadequate.  Whoever gets mine will take their present and LIKE IT.

While the gift snatching is always fun I think an UnBirthday deserves permanent presents.  You get a number and draw your gift from the pile.

I think a small monetary limit is a good idea because its already expensive enough to buy vegan goodies and drive all the way out to BFE Connecticut. 

Think of things that can be found cheaply, either from yard sales, Good Will, Salvation Army and the like.  Heck, pick something you have around the house and gift that!  Make some artwork or sculpture from clay or heck even rocks or twigs.  Have fun!  Food is definitely acceptable but it needs to be be packaged so people do not feel obligated to open it up there and share with the crowd.  On your unbday you do NOT have to share with the whole party!  I promise.

I have an idea of what I want to gift, now I just need time and patience to actually do it.  haha

Having just started classes, there's no way I can afford this in gas/tolls or time off of stuff  :'(

I am still planning on a pre-tg-vegan-tg in November in Albany though if anyone is up this way.

dear rabidchild,

you and me and the scoots shall carpool? i don't have time either but we should do as i tell my students (via tim gunn) "make it work"

ha!

what if we assigned people to people? it could be fun but also mess up if someone can't come.

random vegan gifts for all!

what if someone doesn't LIKE what they get? like you give them like a bread pan and bread mix and they are GF? or coffee or chocolate and they don't like coffee/chocolate/etc

my "gift" is a free bp hair cut!

Ha, I hope I don't get bp!  I like my hairs where they is......

That's a good point, though.  Basically, a pre-arranged match up is the same prep work as a package exchange.  Getting info about your person, etc..........soooo, that's kind of tough. 

I don't know!  :hrmm:

Heh... I get pretty bad motion sickness if I'm not driving, and also my belly can't handle long drives + food, hence the plan to go to my parents' house for the weekend which isn't terribly far from Danbury. (Cause driving from Albany and back, even being the driver, would mean I couldn't eat all day, which is lame). But I can't get away from the 5000 things I have to do in Albany for a weekend at that point in time anyway between work and now added stats study sessions and the cost of gas and things. so.. blah.. another time.

Just wishful thinking that if I quote it on vegweb it becomes the truth.
