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.

Linus: What's Charlie Brown bringing to tomorrow's potluck?

pot luck= a term used for a dinner that is made up of many differentiating parts of the meal.each person at the meal brings a dish. most are a "caserole", "hotdish",or "____salad".then there is a variety of "bars" and "brownies" for desert. the term pot luck comes from a time when the first potluck was used to poison the king. each person who brought a dish put it on the kings table,one which was poisonous. hence the word pot "luck". the luck of the draw....does the king live or die....he died
the dinner was potluck...every body died...errrr mmmm potatoe saaaaalaaaadddd!
