    I think that’s a fabulous idea, and if I lived in your complex I’d totally go. I’d probably even offer to help plan! It’s hard to meet people and nice to be given opportunities around your own home to do so.

    I think your idea of each person chipping in a certain amount of money and then doing a potluck for the rest sounds just fine. I’d just send your management an email and tell them that you’re interested in organizing a “get-to-know-your-neighbor” event. Give them a few proposed dates, outline your plan, ask if there are any special ordinances you need to be aware of, etc. I’m sure they’ll be all for it!

    Then you can do the fun stuff and create invitations!

    I’m not sure if we would attend, honestly. We live in a condo buildling with about 15 units, but we are renting a unit, so I’m less inclined to get to know everyone. Plus, we are among the youngest in the building by a pretty good margin (ha– hence we are renting and others own!)They do things like this from time to time but we haven’t gone. I would actually, but H never really wanted to and I didn’t want to go enough to press it or go alone. 

    If it was a big complex like that, and everyone owns their place so will be around these neighbors for a long time, it seems more likely that people would want to. The $10 things seems like it would be hard to organize, but a potluck seems easier.
