Sometimes, despite ample planning and preparation, things just don't go according to plan. Such was the case yesterday, when a nasty weather forecast prompted us to postpone the Dale's Fried Pies mobile pie stand launch party. We spread the word that the event was postponed to Sunday, and not fifteen minutes later the skies were clear, and remained so for the rest of the evening. Que sera, sera.
I'm pleased to announce that the pie stand party WILL be happening, this Sunday, August 12 from 4-8 p.m. at 815 Banks Avenue in Knoxville, at the home of my dear friend Lila.
We will be sampling a whole mess of pies, including: apple, nectarine, banana nutella, peanut butter & jelly, green chile chicken, curried sweet potato and piña colada.
T-Shirts will be available for $15, as well as $2 raffle tickets for a prize pack including a bunch of goodies and 12 pies in ANY flavor you can dream up.
I'm sure you're all wondering what I did in lieu of hosting a pie party last night. Since we had the stand all set up, we decided to do an impromptu rainy day photo shoot. Naturally.
