Hey, Phoenix, you're sweet. Thanks for coming out for the sixth annual Pie Social, cosponsored by New Times and Roosevelt Row. Hundreds of you sampled dozens of pies made by community bakers and celebrity chefs. Proceeds will benefit Bioscience High School and we hope you emerged full, happy, and inspired to bake for Thanksgiving. 

The competition was fierce this year, and the results were close, although there was one chef whose pie stood out among the rest. A blind panel of six judged the pies, and the results are:
