Amateur bakers and pie-lovers are set meet at an Adams Morgan bar this weekend for an annual pie party.
The fifth “Pie Fest” kicks off at Bourbon (2321 18th St. NW) this Sunday at 1 p.m., organizers said in a press release.
“How does it work? Bring a homemade pie to compete for prizes, or just come to eat and be merry,” the release reads.
Attendees can gorge themselves on pie, then vote for their favorites in the following categories: apple, fruit, nuts, chocolate, savory, “piepourri.” The winners of each category will receive prizes, organizers said.
Tickets cost $15 for competitors and $25 for eaters. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Jayna Troxel Murray Foundation.

Nothing can be more American than pie. City Dogs Rescue is participating in Food & Friends’ “Slice of Life” fundraiser as part of the Friendship Hospital for Animals Team. For every 20 pies sold by the end of today, Thursday, November 15th at 11:59 pm, Friendship Hospital will generously give a $450 credit in veterinary services to City Dogs Rescue. It is a great opportunity to help rescue dogs with medical treatment.
In addition to helping City Dogs Rescue, the funds raised will provide nourishing, life-sustaining meals to the nearly 2,900 children and adults facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses who rely on Food & Friends for their daily meals and nutrition services.
Don’t need a pie? You can buy one to donate to a Food & Friends client. Any additional donations (with pie or without) will go to Food & Friends.
There are four different pies to select from and you need to use the following link to order. Pies can be picked-up at several locations in DC, Maryland and Virginia on Tuesday, November 20.
