​After last month's mighty fried chicken battle, eating enthusiast Celia Sack has announced a new cooking competition. Bring your best personally-baked pies (cut into bite-sized portions) to Sack's shop Omnivore Books (3885A Cesar Chavez at Church) on Thursday, September 10, at 6 p.m. and compete for the chance to win top honors as well as half the door money (if you ain't bakin', it'll cost you $5 to eat and judge the hour-long contest).

Pie knows no boundaries, but prospective entrants might take advantage of the fruit that will then be (or still be) in season in September. According to the seasonality chart at CUESA, it'll be a great time to use apples, Asian pears, blackberries, dates, figs, nectarines, peaches, strawberries, and more.
