I'm new to this site, but I keep reading old threads, maybe from other cities, about Chowhound picnics, and potlucks, etc. . .
for the NYC area, any such gatherings? the summer has already passed, so maybe no BBQ/picnic . . but I think the potluck idea would be really good . . .
any response from the Big Dog himelf would be great, but I think all NYC/Tri-State area Chowhounds would love a chance to eat the food that other Chowhounds want to show off, right?
