  • Bring your stringed instrument for a traditional pre/post pick!
  • For the potluck at the grange – we provide a big salad and an entree & usually a meat free option (I don’t know how to cook without cheese). Regular potluck fare works great! If you don’t know what to bring, are in a rush, pick up a a yummy dessert at a bakery. It is important to contribute : ) There is a pretty high bar for the food people bring to our potlucks. Please bring a dish, not chips and dip.
  • Beverages – please bring enough for your crew and maybe some to share!
  • The bands come and play for us because we pitch in and throw them some cash and feed them so well.  Generally, we aim for $20/person though this can vary a bit – see the info for each show. We do tickets when we are at the grange or other non-house venue.
  • questions? Hit up Paul Rennix.
