Event: Goodale Park Music Series 7/11/2010

My Sundays have just gotten a bit busier this summer. Just like last year, there is going to be a series of six weekly free concerts in Goodale Park. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to any of the concerts last year, but I hear stories of the CU folks getting together and having impromptu potlucks. Concert organizers decided to make the potlucks an official part of the series this year, with a different food blogger hosting each one, and with a loose theme that relates to the music somehow.

Last week, the first concert took place. Colin Gawel and the Lonely Bones put on a fantastic show – it’s no wonder that they are staples in the local music scene.

Jim of CMH Gourmand was the host of last week’s potluck, which was themed Americana/Hotdogpalooza. He brought over 100 hot dogs to grill on site and give away to the hungry masses, with a full selection of condiments to top the dogs with.

Wholly Craft was also on hand to sell their wares…

Now, about the food. About a dozen or so people brought dishes, so there was a nice selection of stuff. Personally, I brought a pan of my Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese, which seemed to go over well considering there were only crumbs left a couple of hours later.

There were also a couple of different types of potato salad, like a crock pot of this German potato salad:

And my personal favorite, this interesting potato salad with loads of dill, radishes, and cucumbers.

Most of the rest of the dishes were salads of some sort. Like this Quinoa, Corn and Green Bean Salad.

Some macaroni salad:

In the veggie sphere, someone brought succotash.


Someone else brought three different kinds of spreads:

There were a couple of desserts, too. One person brought these chocolate cookies.

And some nummy dessert bars, which I was too full to try:

If you missed last week’s concert, don’t fret – there are 5 more chances to enjoy the fun. Today at noon The Mooncussers will play, with Lisa of Restaurant Widow hosting a southern cuisine potluck. Here’s a list of the remaining concerts and potluck themes:

P. and I will definitely be there – keep an eye out for us, and please stop and say hi if you see us. We love to meet new people (and catch up with those we’ve met before).
