Host a Community Potluck at Common Ground!

 

Common Ground encourages community gatherings, so we’ve made it super simple for any group to host a potluck in our beautiful, fully equipped space! Some ideas: neighborhood groups, school groups, music jam sessions, ladies night, board game groups, friends and family gatherings, etc.

DETAILS:

~We split the cost between participants for you, so nobody has to do the awkward money collecting part! (you’re welcome ­čśë ) The cost is $5 per participant upon arrival, with a 20 person minimum to reserve the space. There is a $50 non-refundable down payment by the host as a security deposit/to reserve your time slot. The $50 deposit can be applied to the host and host family’s $5 entrance fee

~Potlucks can be held on Sundays only (as we close at 4pm on Sundays).  The potluck time slot is from 4:30pm-8pm (this includes any set up and clean up time for guests, so please plan accordingly)

~Outside food is allowed only on reserved potluck days (I mean, it’s a potluck right?) BUT no outside alcohol or other beverages may be brought in. These can be purchased at the counter throughout your event. Worry not, though- as we have a wide variety of local tap and bottled beers, a variety of red and white wines (most of them sourced locally), cocktails, Pepsi products, a full coffee/cafe menu, Rishi tea, Nessalla Kombucha, fresh squeezed lemonade, real fruit smoothies and blended drinks. Ice Water dispensers and cups will be provided at no additional cost.

~There will be at least one Common Ground staff member on premises for the entire duration of your event to bartend and ensure your event runs smoothly

~Guests are welcome to use our collection of board and card games

~There is a children’s play area on the main level

~Both levels may be used, but guests must help clean up after themselves. Children may not be left unattended on either level of the building. NOTE: The main level is wheelchair accessible, the upstairs is not.  There are wheelchair accessible restrooms on the main level, as well as diaper changing stations in each restroom.

~There is a stage if guests would like to bring their own instruments to play! You are welcome to use our sound equipment (mics, mic stands, mixer, speakers, upright piano) so long as everything is put back how it was found. Children are not allowed to play with this equipment unattended
