Tomorrow night: FREE Homemade Pie at Omnivore Books

FREE PIE @ Omnivore Books

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): “Bake 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!”  I’ll be in the recording studio, so please, someone go and report back on how yummy it was!

About the author

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
