down together radical pot luck: august 2012

2012 September 1

Well as you probably know by now, DT house opens their home for a monthly pot luck and we were there! It’s a really great way to get a yummo meal, meet some interesting people, and do other fun things like make a craft, and hear some klezmer music. Pretty cool!

Orange juice and sparkling water all around as people started preparing the meal. The main dish was vegan sloppy joes (but I put fragrant rice on mine instead because sloppy joe weirds me out, but I heard the sloppy joes were amazing). I can’t give you a full recap of the food because we ate pretty early before all the food arrived.

We have a new contest called the weirdest face contest and you can see some of the more award winning photos below:

Here’s only a smidgen of the folks in the kitchen, two of whom live at DT, and one who is going to maybe be living with Dena!

Best. Watermelon. Ever. It was so good and refreshing. Thanks David! Not pictured is everyone playing the “guess my middle name” game where you try to guess other people’s middle name based on clues like “It’s boring”, or “It’s two¬†syllables”, or “It starts with a L” or “it’s the most common middle name for people named david”

People brought old magazines and we made collages which a fun, relaxing activity, except for the shortage of scissors (which is totally fine, I know scissors are hard to come by, it just made me have to strategize on my craft). Margret remarked that she often gets so wrapped up in reading the magazines she forgets to craft!

While we crafted, some folks played folksy klezmer music which was nice.

Dena dancing with Matt. Aw! (Dena says that its not fair because all the pictures are of me, which I don’t even know why there are, and she was grumpy that the pictures were blurry)

Dena wanted to go check out her new favorite band, The Trimms, afterward. Watch out, Trimms, Dena is your new biggest fan!
