The Cruise Web Says Farewell to October with a Halloween Potluck

The Cruise Web Halloween PotluckThe Friday before Halloween The Cruise Web held their annual Halloween Potluck as a fun way to say “Good Bye” to October and relax on a Friday afternoon. This year’s spread proved to be one of the best ones ever.

Anchored by Raquel’s now famous cheesecake squares and Jen’s pulled pork, there was a plethora of new dishes to sample. Ron brought in his crock pot filled with Italian sausage, peppers and onions in a red sauce. Gloria brought in her chili, and Tina brought in gigantic cupcakes.
