Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

We had dozens of entries in this year's Pie-Ku contest,  in which entrants wrote a pie-related haiku in an effort to win a spot on our judging panel for the seventh annual Pie Social.

But there was one clear winner, Ashton Weinberger, who wrote:

Thanksgiving weekend
Aunts ask why you are single
But pie won't judge you

Graham gets the honor of stuffing her face first — along with the rest of our esteemed judges — but you can still get in on the action this Saturday, November 19, at the Bioscience High School at 512 E. Pierce Street in downtown Phoenix. Tasting tickets are $12 for five samples. Music, perfect pie-eating weather (fingers crossed), and pleasant company are free. Or bring two pies in exchange for five tasting tickets.

See you there.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
