Wilmington Vegan February Potluck – Mardi Gras Theme!

Vegan Mardi Gras

Bring any Creole, Cajun, Louisianan, or French-inspired dish to our February potluck! Let’s spread our wings a bit and see what we can come up with. There are so many variations of jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans and rice – plus, lots of other dishes including creole pasta, okra, rice mains, collards, sweet potato pie, hopping’ john, seitan creole, cajun stuffed peppers, creole black eyed peas, vegan dirty rice, cajun meatloaf, spicy greens, jalapeño grits, corn bread, (un)crab cakes with remoulade, and French breads. Please post more ideas below!

We’re also having a bake sale! Bring a reusable to-go container because you are definitely going to want to take home some goodies!!

The purpose of this event is to make (or purchase) a new or favorite dish to share with others, get together and socialize with other like-minded folks, and enjoy small samples of the yummy vegan dishes everyone else brings. Please bring a good amount of food to share and extra if you’re bringing children or there’s more than one person in your party.

Bring a list of ingredients along with your dish (or even better, the recipe!) Remember: this is a vegan safe-space event and DISHES MUST BE 100% VEGAN, with no meat, no fish, no milk, no butter, no eggs, no chicken stock, no honey, and so on. Please ask if you have any questions. Please also bring YOUR OWN UTENSILS, BOWL, PLATE and drink. This is a 100% WASTE-FREE EVENT which means we are not generating any trash – please bring only reusable items, no paper or plastic. Alcohol is permitted.

Our potlucks take place the FOURTH SUNDAY of every month (except Nov & Dec) at 5:30pm at the Kitchen & Lounge Community Building at South Front Apartments. Use the gate located on Greenfield Street at 2nd Street, across the street from Satellite Bar. PARKING: Drive straight in all the way to the end of the road and turn right to find parking. Parking is permitted only in the spaces without numbers. After parking, walk over to the lounge located at the center of the complex. The lounge entrance is on the opposite side (facing Front St).

We just released the updated Winter 2016/2017 edition of the Wilmington Vegan Restaurant and Community Guide!

Here’s your chance to spend your dollars ethically! Guides can be viewed and downloaded online at http://wilmingtonvegan.com/dining-guide and physical copies can be found at a few local businesses, especially Tidal Creek (ask for a copy if you don’t see them).

We had a wonderful holiday craft fair this year! We had such a wide variety of vendors and such a positive, festive spirit! Everyone who came got to meet all our local artisans and make lasting connections. Everyone was pleasantly surprised that they found gifts for themselves as well as everyone on their holiday list. We gave away free hot cider and candy canes! Just such a wonderful evening with so many good folks!
