Potluck Post Mortem

Posted by CMH Gourmand on October 13, 2008

Well, it did not turn out the be the world record winning potluck but a good time was had by all. The final count was 379 registered dishes – which was a lot of food and a small volume of leftovers. The weather was perfect, the turnout was impressive, and the food as well as people were diverse. There will be another run for the record – stay RSS’d for details.

Thanks to everyone that came out. There was a good showing from Columbus Underground as well as food bloggers Columbus Foodie and Hungry Woolf.

Local business owners pitched in as well. Weilands Market donated 15 pounds of meat.

Liz Lessner arranged for hummus, cupcakes and other goodies from Surly Girl Saloon and Betty’s.

Jennie Scheinbach was kind enough to donate a big box of chocolate chip cookies from Pattycake Vegan Bakery. She was smart enough to wrap the box in plastic to keep my hand from sneaking in there when I picked them up. The cookies were gone in no time. I believe one of her cookies was the the first item to be consumed when the floodgates dropped for the buffet tables.

Some Bono ToGo pizzas appeared at the end…thanks Bill and Peggy and the person who delivered.

Local media dropped in for some photos and buffet busting.

As the potluck was put to bed, a thought of a guy named Casey popped into my head.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is joy in Clintonville tonight – because another potluck attempt will not be ruled out : >
