Chow Bella and Roosevelt Row's third annual Pie Social will feature a new twist in this year's event -- not only can you enjoy the delicious culinary creations from celebrity and local chefs, but you will also have the chance to play a game or two of the timeless lawn game, croquet.
Adding to the excitement, the wickets (the hoop-ish things you hit your balls through) will be designed and sculpted by students in the Arizona State Sculpture Collective.
The ASSC is a group of students in the Herberger School of Art at ASU who all share an interest in sculpture, and they've been chosen to design the wickets for this year's event with the theme of "Alice in Wonderland."
This particular theme was chosen because of its "whimsical nature and strong visual imagery," according to the ASSC. So expect some spectacular ideas and designs.
Jackalope Ranch will be running profiles on each of the wicket sculptors running up until the event, which will include brief bios, pictures of previous work and hopefully some pictures of the final wicket designs.
The Pie Social will be held at Roosevelt Row at 300 E. Roosevelt St. on November 3 from 2 to 6 p.m.
Stick around for the upcoming profiles and any other details regarding the event.
