Mission Pie's Third Annual Pie Contest Rolls Out This Sunday
All kinds of pie will be on hand for the third annual pie contest at Mission Pie (2901 Mission at 25th St.) this Sunday. Anyone can get in the game -- roll out, fill, and bake up your own particular specialty, and you're good. If you're thinking of sticking with seasonal, current Mission Pie offerings include apple, pumpkin, mixed berry, plum frangipane, walnut, banana cream, and vegan pear-raspberry, but don't feel obliged to copy any of those. Sunday's festivities start at 1 p.m.; submissions are accepted until 2:30 p.m. Judging takes place from 2:30 to 4 p.m., and the winners will be announced around 4. A special guest is promised (any guesses?). One of the judges is Jessica Appelgren, a former winner herself (for apple huckleberry) and went on to become a Blue Ribbon winner at the San Mateo County Fair this summer.
