An event where people bring a different dish each in order to create a complete meal. From the time when people would only eat stews. Each person would bring a bit of food to put in the stew.
Ricky was lucky at the potluck and got beef while unlucky Steve got a bit of frog.

A dinner where all attendees bring one dish to collectively make a complete meal.
This only works if all participants bring a dish. Not to be confused with a 'dinner party' where the host cooks the complete meal.

Bringing 'wine' to a potluck dinner doesn't count, you should BYOB to any event regardless. Yes, showing up to a Potluck dinner without a delicious food item to share makes you a douchebag.
Marcie: I'm so excited for tomorrow's potluck dinner! I spent hours at the market picking out all my fresh ingredients and I'm making my sauce completely from scratch with herbs I've been growing myself for months. Oh, and I raised, slaughtered and plucked the chicken I'm using myself too.
Linus: What's Charlie Brown bringing to tomorrow's potluck?
Peppermint Patty: I think he said he was just bringing a bottle of wine.
Linus: What a douche, that's such a cop-out.

Having a friend that is unnaturally blown up on weed ALL THE TIME, I say he's having a potluck when he goes out to his truck and comes back in with marijuana he found but forgot he had.
"Doggg!"
"Yeah?"
"Duuude!"
"Yeeeeah?"
"Maaan, I went out to my car for a lighter and I found some purple!"
"Yup, that's a potluck for ya."
