Fall Potluck Dinner

We’ll be carving pumpkins and providing apple cider! We’d also love it if you could bring a food dish to share with everyone. Pumpkin pie, your famous spinach artichoke dip, a cultural dish…whatever you like!

What more could you want to kick the fall season in gear?

If you can bring a dish for the potluck spread, sign up below. The more delicious food, the happier everyone will be.

Also, if you want to carve a pumpkin, we’ll provide the carving tools, and all you have to do is stop by County Market (or any other pumpkin-purveying locale of your choice) and bring your own pumpkin. We unfortunately don’t have the resources to transport a ton of pumpkins to Newmark on our own.

The best pumpkin wins bragging rights! Or perhaps a prize! Get excited.

We hope to see you all there! Tell your friends, and let’s make this a perfect way to unwind after the Structural Dynamics exam (for at least a number of you).
