Well, were just 8 days away from gluttony or the Chow Social at No Idea on July 26th.
Already, a staggering 80 people have RSVPed! This includes the Boston Chowhounds yumyum, Galleygirl and possibly the elusive MichaelB. Thank God for the Boston/New York $10 Chinatown bus, it wouldn't be a party without them.
No Idea is going to open up early for us. The social will start at 1pm and we'll basically have the bar to ourselves!!!
Here are some things you need to know for the social:
Admission for each attendee is a minimum of a $20 donation to Chowhound. You can pay by cash, check or charge the day of the social or you can pre-pay by making a Good Will Donation here:
Be sure to bring a copy of your Good Will receipt to the social. Only Good Will receipts from July 15th to July 26th will be honored.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the evite link. ALL hounds are invited! Lurkers, veteran posters, friends of posters. EVERYONE!
Using evite has worked out very well. All attendees can see what everyone else is bringing, making it easier to decide what to bring. If you need a suggestion as to what you should bring, I will be happy to make a suggestion based on your location, food preference, etc ;)
How much should you bring? Well what you want and can afford is appropriate. If you figure the dish will feed 5-10 people then you can expand it as a tasting.
Please bring your food item already cut up and ready to go . If your dish requires say a spatula, its up to YOU to bring a spatula. Keep in mind that this is like a tasting, so portions should be 1-3 bite sized.
If anyone has any extra disposable serving utensils they dont care about getting back please bring them along.
Are you willing to be a helper at the social? I have a few duties that Id love to have help with. Please email me at the address above.
No Idea is located at 30 East 20th Street, between Park and Broadway.
