A Pie Social rundown:
Time/Place: 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, November 16, at the "What Should Go Here" Pop Up Park at Second and Roosevelt streets
Bring: Two pies or $10 for five tasting tickets.
Rules for bakers: Be sure to put your name/phone number on masking tape on the bottom of your dishes so we can return them. This year, dairy and meat fillings will be allowed and we'll have ice to keep them cool. You'll be responsible for the heat -- we'll have electrical hook-ups.
