Pie Down Today: Marijean Jaggers vs. Baron Schwartz

By Communications

The other day, I was minding my own business, getting a cup of coffee on the downtown mall at Mudhouse. I ran into some friends, who introduced me to¬†a fellow I later learned is the world’s expert in MySQL. Rather quickly thereafter, we followed one another on Twitter, and connected on LinkedIn.

(I have since decided that all new friends of mine will be pre-qualified by their Wikipedia entry).

By the afternoon of that very same day, my new friend had challenged me to a pie down. Which is today. (The first Pie Down was in 2009, when I challenged The Food Geek in the first-ever such event. The love of pie and the community that came together over a passion for flaky crusts and spectacular fillings led to the annual Charlottesville Pie Fest).

We’re looking for people to judge pie and enjoy free coffee today at 1:30PM sharp. For more information, to RSVP and gain location information, clickety.
