The first Mycophagists' Table event was a sensational success.

Our goal is to meet a minimum of four times a year for a potluck dinner at the homes of members. Anyone can host a dinner, and the size of the party is at the discretion of the host. Some members might have space for a group of 20, others for a group of 6. The cost of the party is also at the discretion of the host, and may include the costs of a clean-up person and wine. The potluck theme is at the discretion of the host as well. For example, a member might host a cultivated versus wild mushroom tasting, or a mushroom and wine-pairing dinner, and so on. The charm of the events will lie in the individual choices the host makes. Other activities may be included, like readings, film or musical performances (mushrooms and a movie?). This is not a for-profit proposition, but an opportunity to enjoy good food and company.
We will post the hostís invitation on the NYMS website and reminders will be sent by email blast. Members can RSVP by return email to the host or an electronic sign-up list, on a first come, first serve basis. However, members who have hosted dinners during the year will jump to the top of the list.
