This month’s theme – BOUNTY – appropriately describes the reception to July’s installment of Pros(e) of Pie. Online tickets sold out… door tickets sold out…. and,when we couldn’t say no, we allowed some standing room spots!
The audience was treated to long form stories from Jim Keyes, Bari Alyse Rudin, and John Georgette. Coincidentally, John Georgette started off as an open-mic’er during the very first Pros(e) of Pie in June. Plus, several brave souls put their names in the hat for our shorter open-mic slots and four of them were selected to get their stories out.
This month’s “Best Pie” title, selected by audience ballot, went to a wonderful Apple-blueberry ‘miracle’ crumble. Baked by the winner of last month’s prize! The skilled baker won a second $20 gift card to Chef Central. For the sake of fair play, we’ll be changing the rules to prevent any more streaks of pie-baking supremacy.
And, one lucky audience member won the raffle, bringing home a tasty lemon-blueberry pie (pictured below).
See you all on August 17, for the next monthly installment of Pros(e) of Pie. Theme TBD.
