Portland Pie Off

August 9, 2009

judgebadgeLast year, I happened to be online when conversations began bouncing around Twitter regarding the First Portland Pie-Off.  As a believer in service, especially self-sacrificing service, I volunteered to serve as a judge for this worthy cause.  Without too much hesitation, they accepted my selfless offer.  It turned out to not be too much of a sacrifice – I had a great time!

This year, for some strange reason, they asked me to encore my judging skills.  Yes, that’s right, I get to have to judge pies again!

It really was fun last year.  There must have been about 50 pies.  Fruit, faux, vegetable, savory, creamy custards – just about any kind of pie you could imagine.  In addition, there were about 100 spectators – people from all around Portland came to catch some free pie the excitement.  We laughed, ate some great pies (it was really hard to decided the winners!), and genuinely had some good, old-fashioned, community fun.

Seriously – you need to come out to this year’s event.  It really is a lot of fun!
