If you have an urge to bake pie this week, consider entering it in the Picnics & Pies contest this Saturday at Lush Wine & Spirits (1257 S. Halsted). Paula Haney from Hoosier Mama Pie and Frank Sennett, Editor-in-Chief of Time Out Chicago will be judging pies in Best Crust, Best Crumble and Most Creative categories.
The event benefits Blue Sky Inn, an organization that provides work opportunities for at-risk youth. We’re big fans of Blue Sky Bakery — any place that combines delicious ingredients for a good cause is okay in our book. If you can’t make it to the event this weekend, consider making an online donation. Thank you!
