Pie Social 2013 Call for Celebrity Bakers: Space is Limited! Sign Up!
Get hungry, people. We've got some amazing chefs participating in the fourth annual Roosevelt Row/Chow Bella Pie Social, coming Saturday, November 16.
We can only take 20 celebs -- and the spots are filling up fast. So if you are prepared to make 12 pies (all the same kind) in a commercial kitchen, bring it on. Email New Times Managing Editor Amy Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, Sept. 18 to secure your spot. (There's no entry fee.)
If you just want in on the fun, we do have a community baking category, and you don't need to enter. Just show up with pie!
Here are more details:

As in years past, we will have a category for "celebrity" bakers and one for community bakers. If you prepare your pies in a commercial kitchen (and can prove it), you can enter the celebrity category. If not, no worries -- you can still enter in the community category.
(Note: The county makes the rules, not us, folks -- so we apologize in advance for any disappointment, but we don't have any wiggle room on this one.)
CELEBRITY BAKERS: You will need to bring 12 pies, along with someone (like you) with a food handler's license to serve. This year, dairy and meat fillings will be allowed and we'll have ice to keep them cool. You'll be responsible for the heat -- we'll have electrical hook-ups.
COMMUNITY BAKERS: Two pies per entry, and we'll have ice to keep things cool.
Your two pies will get you five tasting tickets, OR you can buy five tasting tickets for $10. The event will benefit the Bioscience Arts and Green Shovel clubs.
More details on the event will be coming soon, but for now we are looking for celebrity bakers to enter! (Community bakers, you just need to show up.)
If you'd like to enter -- or you have more questions -- please email Phoenix New Times Managing Editor Amy Silverman at email@example.com.
CELEBRITY BAKERS MUST ENTER BY NO LATER THAN 5 P.M. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, TO GUARANTEE A SPOT IN THE CONTEST.
We are limited to 20 celebrity chefs and spots are first come, first served.
Stay tuned for more details about activities and other details.
