Pie Party Potluck LIVE!
Make. Bring. Eat. Pie.
Please come spend a tasty afternoon enjoying the pies and company of food bloggers, food writers, food entrepreneurs, chefs, bakers, restauranteurs, other food biz peeps, pie enthusiasts and more.
- A savory or sweet pie, preferably home-made. Every attendee MUST bring a pie.
- A container to take pie home -- just in case -- we had no leftovers at the last potluck, but tons of cookies left over at the Cookie Swap -- you never know...
- Business cards - very helpful when you are trying to network with your mouth full of pie
- Your appetite (stretchy pants has been suggested...)
WHAT IS PIE?
noun /pī/pies, plural A baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base of pastry
Our definition of pie is a little looser. Pie: filling or topping and a crust. Suggestions: pie, tart, quiche, galette, pot pie, hand pie, empanadas, pasties, pizza, tartlets, strudel, pie in jars, pie-let, turnover or any other configuration or name for a concoction that includes a filling or topping and a crust.
Get our mouths watering. Let us know what pie you’re bringing in the comment on section of our Pie Party Potluck LIVE! blog post. Be sure to include the link to your blog or website or FB page, etc and I’ll list it on the Pie Party Potluck LIVE! blog post and tweet it. (Twitter Hash tag is #PiePartyLive)
YOU NEED TO KNOW
EVERY attendee must bring a pie, preferably homemade. If you want to bring your partner, your BFF, you dentist, etc., they must bring a pie.
You can't make a bad homemade pie -- anything that you labor to make from scratch will be completely appreciated. However, if you bring a pie that you didn’t make, make sure it’s a good one because the Pie Police will be in attendance. Life is too short to eat bad pie. If you need suggestions of where to buy good pie in NYC email me Jackie at jackiegordon.com or reach out on Twitter.
First In, Most Pie: The pies will be served as they arrive so get to the event early to get the lion’s share of the pie.

We’ll provide signage and markers to write down the name of your pie.
Water, coffee and tea will be served. Drinks will be available for purchase at the bar, some at happy hour prices.
