BP & RC plan an Easter Thing (Capital Region, NY)

I know this is a few months early.... but yesterday Baypuppy and I were cooking bunches of foods for the freezer in my new giant kitchen (we made TONS of ravioli with my pasta maker) and we got to talking about having a vegan Easter potluck/meetup/get together. We could make Seitan-Hamz and make vegan easter chocolates and cookies and party down in the new-improved Chez-Rabid_Child (in Latham -- 15 minutes north of the former Chez-Rabid_Child in Albany). Another idea we were tossing around was having everyone bring a pre-determined number of plastic Easter eggs with a vegan treat inside to hide, then we could have an Easter egg hunt!  (And also encouraging everyone to wear their "Sunday Best" and their "Easter Bonnets" -- and possibly having someone dress up as the Easter bunny so we can have Easter bunny pics. HAHA!)

Easter this year is on April 12th, so we were thinking either the weekend before (April 4/5) or the weekend after (April 18/19).
Our new house is pretty big and we can accomodate overnight guests if people wanted to come from further away.
As always, both vegetarians and vegans and respectful omni friends/significant others/family members are welcome, though all the food would need to be vegan so that everyone could enjoy everything.

Does anyone have any interest? If so, would one weekend be better than the other for you? Saturday v. Sunday?

Is it bad that I am seriously considering driving 7 hours to come?

Not crazy!

BP can attest to the massive amount of crash space I have in the new pad. Just bring a sleeping bag and pillow and you're set! (as long as you don't mind possibly being poked at/climbed on/sniffed/dug out by the cats all night)

After reading this thread before bed I had a dream I was making ravioli with y'all. And it was really good.

We haven't decided. Either is fine with me. When is your baby shower fiasco? Is that the weekend before Easter (the first weekend in April) or the weekend before that (the last weekend in March).

I signed up as a 'maybe'.  I'd like to get some of the DC/Burbs crew to come so I don't have to drive 7 hours alone.
