A BRIEF GUIDE TO VEGAN POTLUCKING
1. Bring a vegan* dish to feed eight adults. If you could consume everything you brought by yourself, it's probably not enough. If you're coming with another person, be sure to double the amount of your dish.
Saturday April 20th
Come celebrate Earth Day at Austin's largest vegan potluck picnic! In addition to tons of delicious food and great company, there will be live music raffle prizes!
HOW THIS ALL WORKS
The picnic is held at Pease Park (the south end at the picnic tables section). Click here for a Google map that shows exactly where in the park we'll be. The parking is limited to the residential streets in the area, so please be considerate of the people who live there. Also try to carpool if you can, but at any rate be prepared to park a little further away and walk in. If you have any of your own folding chairs or similar, you might want to bring them, we're not sure how quickly we'll fill the seating. If you have a folding table you're willing to bring, that stands a good chance of coming in handy!
Lastly: the whole reason the Gathering of the Tribes was conceived was to bring all of Austin's different groups of vegans and vegetarians together in one place, and help them MEET NEW PEOPLE. We all spend lots of time with our friends at the events we go to week after week, month after month. When you come to the Gathering tomorrow, make an effort to mingle and introduce yourself, and then consider sitting while you eat with people who you've just met, so you can get to know each other. This is how we build our community!
