I really love how many events these days are centered around local food, and this one sounds pretty sweet (as in both cool and sugary). Usually I don’t give a shit, but occasionally I feel just slightly patriotic. You know, around voting time, the Olympics, and yesterday because of the U.S. Open (tennis seems pretty tame until those relentless New York crowds start cheering the American players and, in harsh NY fashion, booing their foreign opponents). Well, what is more American than homemade pie? And what is better than homemade pie? FREE homemade pie and a chance to win some money.
Tomorrow night you can swing by Omnivore Books and enter your pie into a contest, or you can just show up to stuff your face with pie and judge others’ baking skills. The deets (from website): â€œBake any kind of pie you wish (and as many as you want), cut it into bite-size pieces, and come show off your skills! Free to pie entries, $5 for those just wishing to eat and judge. We need LOTS of bakers this time for a successful contest, so step on up. Winner splits the door money with us!â€ I’ll be in the recording studio, so please, someone go and report back on how yummy it was!
