While we rarely go to craft fairs (too many crafts, not enough fare), we're stoked about attending next week's Day in the Dogpatch. Why the sudden change of heart? Two words: pie contest. Would-be contestants are encouraged to enter a pie in four different categories: best overall presentation, classic Americana, best meat pie, and most unexpected ingredient. Judging begins at 3 p.m. on Nov. 7. Would-be eaters are encouraged to devour said pies. Also, the first 20 attendees will receive a $1-off coupon to Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous. An orgy of pies and discounted ice cream? If more craft fairs added these bonuses, we could become a regular Carol Duvall.
