“Ten will enter, one will win,” promises the Pi Day Pie-Eating Contest’s Facebook page. So just like Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, but with more contestants and fewer chain saws strapped to the side of a dome-shaped death cage. What do those 10 contestants stand to win, besides an upset stomach? A $25 gift card to Serious Pie, fittingly. The pies they will be stuffing themselves with will also come courtesy of Tommy D, being of the coconut-cream variety that the Dahlia Bakery does so well. Why should you go, other than to compete for a meager amount of pizza? Well, because there is no more perfect marriage than a charcuterie and Gruyère baguette from nearby Rain Shadow Meats and an hour spent watching people make asses out of themselves. Schadenfreude, baby.
UPDATE: All 10 spots for the contest have been filled. Please check in at the Occidental Square info kiosk for wait list availability or come down day of to see if any spots open up!
