On your marks, get set, BAKE!
But first, sign up to participate in the seventh annual Pie Social, cosponsored by Roosevelt Row and Phoenix New Times, to be held at the Bioscience High School, located at 512 East Pierce Street, on Saturday, November 19, at 2 p.m.
We've got 15 slots for our celebrity chef category — professionals who bake in a commercial kitchen — and if history serves, those slots will fill up fast.
To participate in the celebrity chef category, you must be available from about noon to 5 p.m. the day of the event, and bring 15 pies, same size and same kind (meat and dairy are allowed).
Claim your spot by e-mailing New Times managing editor Amy Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you don't qualify for the celebrity chef category, there's room for all. Community bakers can bring two pies (no meat or dairy, please) and get five tasting tickets in exchange. Tasting tickets will be sold for $12 for five.
Stay tuned for more details about entertainment and other pie-related merriment.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
