"These types of contests are a fun way to showcase some of the excellent eateries we have here in Denver, and doing a pie event was only fitting, considering Colorado's own John Lehndorff is affiliated with pies on a national level," explains Ballas. The pies will be critiqued on the basis of taste, texture, crust and originality, with two pies an apple and a specialty pie ultimately named the victors. First- and second-place winners will receive a framed certificate and, of course, bragging rights, says Ballas.
The contest, which kicks off at 1 p.m., is open to the public; for more info, dial 303-333-7627.
