Mmmmmm, gimme a slice!
Here's a sure sign fall is here:
The annual Bucktown Apple Pie Contest is back!
That means all you amateur pastry chefs need to dust off those old recipes handed down to you by your mom or granny. It's $15 to enter the contest, and local restaurateurs/chefs like Michael Taus (Duchamp, Zealous) will be on the judging panel.
The event happens 2-5pm Oct. 18 at Holstein Park (2200 N. Oakley), with all proceeds from the contest benefiting the Friends of Holstein Park.
You'll also be entertained by bluegrass favorite Tangleweed, plus you'll get to sample each pie for only a few bucks.
