What was that again? How does that work?....
Here's a further explanation of the Sibley Forest Progressive Dinner for those who are new to the event.
Neighbors sign up to host or to just attend, but everyone contributes food items. You go to one home for appetizers, one home for dinner and then end up at the clubhouse with everyone.
You will bring an appetizer OR a dessert -- as designated in a written invitation received before the event.
You bring a side dish and wine to the home at which you are having dinner.
So, everyone contributes to the event. You move around the neighborhood during the evening, being hosted at different neighbors' homes.
It's really a fun time and you get to meet neighbors you usually don't bump into in the neighborhood.
