We hope you’ve got a good winter love story brewing today. While we gear up for tomorrow’s “Love, Actually” Pros(e) of Pie, take a peek at Google’s search page today. Each letter turns into a candy heart – but wait, there’s more! We almost missed that you can click on each of the hearts to hear true story from This American Life. Which will be your favorite?
Tickets still available!

January’s show was another sold-out hit, with some calling it the best PoP yet. We think all the show’s have been great but this one certainly included a wonderful mix of Big Chill-themed stories, emotions and reactions – exactly what our events are all about!
Big thanks to this month’s long-form storytellers- Jill Lifflander, Ivy Eisenberg, Cynthia Ehrenkratz, and Mike Witkowski – and congratulations to all of our brave open-mic’ers. It won’t be the same without your willingness to share your life’s stories with us.
Finally, double congratulations to the newly crowned Pie Master for January, Susan, whose chocolate caramel walnut tart won a $20 gift card to the recently opened Mrs. Green‘s up the street. Her tart pleased our bellies as much as her open mic story had us cracking up. This is Susan’s second win and is part of year long challenge of baking pies weekly (thanks to a lost bet). We’re hoping the rest of this story makes it to the PoP stage soon.
Stay tuned for the ticket release for Februarys’ show. Theme: “Love, Actually” on Feb. 15.
Of course, that’s the South. Up here in the Northeast, we’re well into Autumn and deep into Halloween season. There can be no desserts more appropriate than pie. Just take your pick – apple pie, pumpkin pie… What’s not to love???
One of our October storytellers shared this picture. A snapshot of an absurd moment in 1986, forever frozen in time. We’re not sure what’s more frightening – the ghastly costumes or the 80s hair and makeup. The world will find out on October 23.
For Halloween, we’re bringing you a very special edition of Pros(e) of Pie from theSleepy Hollow Cemetery! We’ve got a great line-up of local storytellers for this month’s theme – all things Halloween. Hear tales about superhero origins, life-changing pursuits and a costumed coming of age. Some of our storyteller will be in costumes so feel free to wear yours too. Weather permitting, the event will be held outdoors in the cemetery; inclement weather will move the event into the chapel.

Thanks to everyone who came out to September’s sold out installment of Pros(e) of Pie. We heard prepared stories about molding young minds through snow play, building a community landmark and growing up on a street of large families. Brave audience members took up open mic slots to tell shorter stories that made us laugh, cry, and wonder in awe.
The vote-winning pie of the night was a tasty Blueberry, basil & goat cheese pie created by PoP fan TC that blew the audience away. Stay tuned for her generously shared recipe and video of the the night’s stories.
In the meantime, stay tuned for details on a very special Halloween edition of PoP at the legendary Sleepy Hollow cemetery and enjoy these photos from the evening.
