Join the pie community! Pie bakers of all skill levels are invited to participate in the 8th Annual Brooklyn Pie Social hosted by Bubby’s, One Main St., DUMBO, the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 25, as a benefit for New York City public schools.
Main Street in Brooklyn will overflow with a wonderful assortment of pies baked by local bakers. Bubby’s also invites you to bring a pie to share and promises not a crumb of pie will be left.
Last year 80 bakers showed up to present their pies, and more than 300 people showed up to eat them. Your $5 entry fee and at least one homemade pie entitle you to five free tasting tickets (you can share them, and there is plenty to share) and a big blue ribbon. This is a social, not a contest, and organizers encourage all kinds of baking styles and all kinds of bakers. The community is invited to celebrate pie in all its varied glory.
Bakers should report at 11:30 a.m. for check-in and free coffee. Volunteers (students from the High School of Food and Finance) will circulate to help bakers so that they can taste and roam the social.
Bring pies that don’t need refrigeration (cream, ice cream and custard pies are discouraged) because they can’t withstand four hours of sun and are likely to spoil outside on a warm day. The organizers encourage savory pies as well as dessert pies, and would also like young bakers to participate.
Sign up now and be a part of the pie. Contact Dani Finkel at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (646) 338-0422.
