Beet Street party is coming up – Saturday Oct. 14, to be exact – and with it comes Honeypie’s second-annual Great Midwestern Pie Championship, which takes place at its sister restaurant Palomino (2492 S. Superior St.) on the same day, 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
If you’re a competitive pie-maker, you can enter in one or all three of the categories – Apple (must be the main filling ingredient), Wisconsin-inspired (has to feature Wisco ingredients) and Chocolate (self-explanatory, no?).
All ages are welcome to enter. The pie must be made from scratch – duh. Each pie will be judged on overall appearance and taste, the filling’s consistency and flavor, and the crust – its color, texture and flavor. There are amateur and professionals divisions, so make sure you read the rules completely before you register. The entry fee is $10, with proceeds benefiting the Fondy Food Center.
As for Beet Street, it’s a block party (12-6 p.m.) taking place on East Potter and South Wentworth avenues in Bay View. Goodkind, Palomino and Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth Ave.) are all spots you need to visit for special craft cocktails and beers.
