PotLuck Social on September 2nd before SAA
Dana

Last SAA, Jose put forward an idea that everyone liked alot:-let's try out some version of this right away. Before S17 and S30.This is the plan: Sept. 2nd at 2:00 let's set up some tables with food in Copley Square before the SAA along with a book swap and clothing give-away/swap.We can invite musicians, do face painting, flyering, and talking with people about the future of democracy.  PotLuck. family-friendly. Juicy.

If we're definitely potlucking, I can bring bread and some other simple fare. Or let me know what's most needed.

Do people know about this event?  I'm still game to suppor the potluck, just wanted to check:

Last yearthe theater finally returned to help launch Harvard Square?s inaugural?Revival Month.? And now a return engagement is in order.The Circus of the Possibilitarians is a satirical horse and butterflycircus, addressing pertinent national and international issues in aclownish fashion, features rotten ideas, a wild dancing horse, asaxophone ballet, a solemn salute to the world's casualties and muchmore! Not to mention The Dire Circumstance Jubilation Ensembleproviding a little bit of brass and a lot of noise.

I think we should go ahead with ours...
Dana

It's probably too late to cancel/reschedule since some publicity for our event has already gone out.
And we can even direct people to go to Cambridge after they get a snack and flyer from us.

Anyone coming with a car?
Dana

Last time we had a book swap, there were many excellent books left over at the end. Would be good to donate to Lucy Parson's book Collective (and can't just leave them on the grass at Copley) if that happens again.

Hello I will bring the drinks, I am new to this so I do not know that well how to use it,
 

Sorry!
Brennan

I had something come up that I can't miss on Sunday, so I'll miss the potluck. But I should be able to make the SAA. Bummed I'll miss this and the bread & puppet show.

No worries.

Brennan-
It was a good event with 20+ people. Visitors from Occupy D.C. In addition to eating a schmoozing we flyered for upcoming events. It looked like it was starting to rain so we held the SAA early like from 4:00-5:10. So I hope you didn't come after that looking for the SAA and being stood up!
