PIE DROP OFF
Pies are to be dropped off from 10 am to 2 pm on Sunday, September 5. No pies will be accepted after 2 pm.
Drop your pies off in the parking lot of Bar 210, located at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Blvds. in Beverly Hills. (Bar 210 replaced Trader Vic's). Enter the parking lot off of Santa Monica Blvd. Please see the attached map. **You do not need to find parking - simply pull into the parking lot to drop off the pies. Check-in should only take a few minutes.**
You'll see a table staffed with KCRW volunteers. We'll check you in, make sure we have the details on your pie and we'll give you a sticker to go underneath your pie plate. Plan on picking up your pie plate at the end of the contest.
The contest starts at 4 pm. We will have refrigeration for your pies between drop off and judging.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
The event begins at 4 pm. Winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded at around 5:30 pm. The event ends at 6 pm.
We will have an apron fashion show so please plan on bringing your favorite apron to show off. Chris Douridas will be DJ-ing throughout the event. After the pies are judged, we invite everyone to taste all the pies.
There are 5 categories (Fruit, Nut, Cream/Chiffon/Mousse, Savory, and Interpretive) and we'll be awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons for each category. One pie will be chosen for Best in Show. We've also added a "Best Crust" award.
