Potluck #V, as in Valentine's Day. It's another CHOCOLATE POTLUCK!!! [more inside]
Potluck! [more inside]
From Wikipedia: To the Irish, a potluck was a meal with no particular menu. Everyone participating brought a dish for all to share. The term comes from a time when groups of Irish women would gather together and cook dinner. They only had one pot so they cooked the meal together with whatever ingredients they happened to have that day. [more inside]
We're throwing a series of potlucks in Jan/Feb. Come to whichever potluck or potlucks work for your schedule! [more inside]

Here's a few common ones for a starting point. Let's get together and make some of them! [more inside]
We're throwing another potluck this Friday. It's last-minute, but y'all are invited! 5ish to 9ish! Chocolate not required this time. [more inside]
