And he said, "Let them eat pie."
Ok, maybe I skewed the quote a tad, but in this case that’s what it should be. This Saturday, the 26th, in honor of a new play-writing contest inspired by iconic American photos, the New York Theatre Experiment is holding a pie bake-off. There will be two winners chosen: one by a panel of celebrity judges including Top Chef Dave Martin and P*ong pastry chef Betty Yip, and the other will be voted by the guests as the Audience-Favorite. There will also be a silent auction for prizes like gift certificates to NYC restaurants and home furnishing stores.
There is still time to enter your pie ($10 online or $15 day of event), so click here if you think you’ve got a winner. Guests can purchase tasting tickets for $1 or four for $5, but if you don’t want to eat (who wouldnt?) then admission is FREE. Not a bad deal. Apple, peach, blueberry, cherry, pumpkin, banana cream – if you’ve got it – bake it!
What: The Great American Pie-Off!
Where: The Bowery Electric, 327 Bowery between 2nd and 3rd avenues, *look for the mirrored door*
