Ready to pie one on, Phoenix? Today we're announcing our line-up of celebrity bakers for Pie Social 2012, to be held Saturday, November 3, 2 to 6 pm on Roosevelt Row.
We've got more news, too. In an effort to help you burn off all that pie, Roosevelt Row is sponsoring a croquet tournament during Pie Social. Stay tuned here and to Jackalope Ranch for more details.
And now, the bakers:
Justin Beckett, Beckett's Table Monti Carlo David Duarte, Hyatt Regency Phoenix Slade Grove, Slade Grove Creative Gourmet Winnona Herr, District American Kitchen and Wine Bar Tim O'Connor, Honey Moon Sweets Amanda and Corianne Sizemore, Treehouse Bakery Virginia Senior, Urban Beans Tonya Saidi, Mamma Toledo Pies Traci Wilbur, Pie Snob
Community bakers, no worries. You don't need to sign up. You can still bring two pies and get 5 tasting tickets (or bring $10 for 5 tickets), the day of the event.
Or if you meant to sign up as a celebrity baker -- but didn't -- you're in luck. We're extending the deadline to this Friday, September 21, at 8 am. No exceptions after that, though, so speak now -- or forever (for this year) hold your piece (of pie). Email Phoenix New Times Managing Editor Amy Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org to toss your name in or to get more information.
