Imagine this ideal Sunday afternoon: Blanket and/or lawn chair, sunglasses, and handfuls of pie. It’s the 10th annual Roosevelt Row Pie Social picture we’re painting, held at Hance Park from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 10.
For its first double-digit year, the friendly pie-baking competition is bringing in some of the heaviest hitters in Phoenix’s dessert scene. Restaurants already on deck include All The Little Things, Beckett’s Table, The Breadfruit & Rum Bar, Cartel Coffee Lab, Cornish Pasty Co., Cotton & Copper, The Dressing Room, The Farish House, Handlebar Diner, Jobot Coffee & Bar, Josephine, Ollie Vaughn’s, Match Restaurant & Lounge, Social Hall, Urban Beans, Welcome Diner/Welcome Chicken + Donuts, and more to be announced.
Attendees will get their chance to sample the competition’s flaky entries. Plus the Pie Social is all ages and pet friendly, too. Admission is free, while pie tasting tickets are $15 for five tastes.
For tickets and more information, see the Pie Social website.
