Want to be a Judge at Pie Social?

The line-up of judges for our celebrity pie bake-off at the first-ever Pie Social on Saturday, November 13 is looking almost as swanky as our line-up of celebrity bakers.

But we've got one slot left -- for YOU. We want to add a Chow Bella reader to our judging panel.

Enter our contest. It's easy! Just leave a comment below with an explanation of why you should be a judge, and be sure to leave an email address where we can contact you.

The entry with the most creative reason will receive judging privileges (be sure you're free from 1:30 to 3 on Saturday, November 13!) and a prize package including a Chow Bella apron, tasting tickets and more. Runners-up will receive prize packages.

Deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Tuesday, November 9. Good luck!

The celeb line-up, once more time:

Veronica Arroyo, Bourbon Steak; Tracy Dempsey, Tracy Dempsey Originals; Slade Grove, Wicked Kitchen Gourmet & Cookies From Home; Andrea Kretzmann, Saffron Kitchen; Danielle Leoni, The Breadfruit; Joan O'Connor, Honey Moon Sweets Bakery & Dessert Bar; Sia Trujillo, That's a Wrap; Silvana Salcido Esparza, Barrio Café; and Traci Wilbur, Pie Snob.
