DC Ice Cream Social Redux

Sun August 5 at 3:00 PM, Crispus Attucks Park
23 U St NW, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
The 2016 Ice Cream Social/Potluck at Crispus Attucks Park was a lot of fun, so how about a repeat? Does July 7, 8 or 22 work for people? Or if July's too hot, later in August or early September?

UPDATE: August 5th looks like the best date. Looking forward to trying everybody's efforts. At least one attendee is lactose-intolerant, so I'm making the Vegan Chipotle Chocolate again.

July 7-8 are no good for us... July 22 is doable but probably only in the evening.

Thank you for posting this! I hope we can join.

We want as many people to attend as possible (especially you and your multiple delights!), so maybe July won't work. How about August 5, 12, 18, 25 or 26?

We’d love to do this again and I think any of the August dates would work for us.

All the August dates work for me!

Thanks for posting this, Johnny Wallflower! The 22nd and the weekend of Aug 11th don't work for me but all the others are good.

I'd love to be able to attend! Aug 18 or 26 would definitely work for me AFAIK at this point. The other dates would require a little finagling with the PITA daughter, who loves ice cream but not so much people, sunshine &c.

August 12th and 18th would work for us!

I have to double-check, but August 5th and 12th are probably good. We're leaving town on August 17 for 2 weeks, so later August is a no-go for us.

The 5th and the 12th are the most available. Mrs. P. and drlith, could you do the 5th so everybody had matching towels can make it?

Only if we can move the event to North Carolina ):

But Ms. Towels makes fantastic ice cream so my feelings will not be hurt if you select a day she can make it

Agreed, towels-for-all ice cream is transcendent.

At the risk of pushing this forward indefinitely, post-Labor Day works too!

If the 12th works best for everyone else I can always drop the ice creams off with someone!

That was so fun! July 22 or any of the August dates work for me!

August 5 probably works best for me, and I'm also up for post-Labor Day if a longer planning timeframe would help.

As someone who couldn't make it in 2016 and had never been there, I took a minute to look it up and thought the google maps link might be helpful: Crispus Attucks Park.

I have lost the plot on the date discussion above, I'm afraid. Is Aug 5 the leading contender?

Yeah, let's go with August 5.

I should be able to do the finagling to make it on the 5th.

What's the likely sprog attendance here? I'm thinking I may fly solo since this falls right before the by-then 11-month-old's naptime and the five year old has a future kindergarten classmate get-together at 4.

We're so there!

phearlez, we're planning on bringing our kiddo (she's 2 years old plus change). Kiddos are always welcome! I believe the Pterodactyls brought their daughter last year, though we left ours with my mother-in-law.

Not sure what I'll be making, but there probably will be a at least one vegan and full-dairy option; and at least one ice-cream "treat" (pie, cake, sandwiches, bonbons, who knows).

Also, we can bring a folding picnic table!

Is anyone coming allergic to nuts?
