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?

yeah, i def want in on this too... but i need info too. Depending on how far it is, i may have to crash there, Cali, if you'll have me.  ???  But ill bring the nooch and popcorn!!!
SLUMBER PARRRRTAY!!!
and we can play slumber party games like prank cute boys and moon the traffic!!
(first one to sleep, gets their underwares frozen!!)

So what is the deal/ rules of the gifting? What did we decide was going to happen?

hahah OK!

Its a potluck slumber partay!  I have two rooms for guests, two couches, two air mattresses and plenty of floor space.   The only thing I do not have tons of are blankets, so bring your blanky!

If people want to bring brunch supplies we can totally cook up goodies in the morning too.

My house is 3 hours from Boston and 2 hours from your LA.  As I have never been to Albany I have no clue how far it is, sorry!! 

Gift Exchange Rules were:  Under $15.  They will be numbered and you will get a number.  We will open presents after cupcakes, hahah!

As for gifts, I was thinking personal things.  Maybe a compilation of your favorite recipes, a jar of your favorite cookie or muffin mix, a tin of your favorite tea.  Something you made like a scarf or hat, something you found like a dip and chip tray at Goodwill.    Share something of yourself and anyone would be beyond happy to cherish it.

Do you have a dehydrator?  Make a custom dried fruit mix.  Bring a sprouting jar with delish grains to sprout.  Think of something you love, share it with someone.

Hi!  I've never posted on these boards before, but someone on the ppk forums told me there was a CT potluck coming up so I thought I'd register over here too! 

I really would like to come!  I don't know anyone but I will promise to bring delicious food!

I'm from the southern area of Connecticut (Shelton/New Haven/Bridgeport) so if anyone wants to carpool, I can drive!  I haven't had a chance to read through the whole thread yet, but yay I am excited for a potluck.

B & A are very welcome!   Hartford is over an hour away from me though.  So that would be a long trek!  And as I know them they are welcome to crash space.

You are more than welcome to come Sweetpotatoe!  I will send you a private message with the exact address if you are interested in coming to Danbury for a day of food and fun with us vegwebbers!

Hi guys, I just logged on quick to ask about potluck foods.  Does anyone know yet what they are bringing?  Is there anything people WANT someone to bring?  I am trying to plan ahead of time and budget my food monies.

bp, hartford is where I live.  So I mean, yeah, it's not really close by.  Case in point, I'll be crashing at Cali's as well.
