Anyway You Slice It: Today is National Pie Day

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's curious that such a day would fall not when we're gorging on Thanksgiving and Christmastime treats, or at the height of berry season in the summer, but today happens to be National Pie Day. So if you need an excuse to find yourself a big ol' slice of something delicious bedded down in some flaky crust, today you've got it. (Does Chicken Pot Pie Count?)

We like to bake pie, hang out with people who really like to bake pie, scope pie contests, and, of course, eat pie here at LAist. But since technology hasn't yet figured out how we can pass you a bite through your monitor, some pie porn will have to suffice. Now, go out and get yours. And tell us where you think the best pie in L.A. can be found.
