Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 22nd 2016 4080 0

National Pie Day is tomorrow! today! To celebrate, here is a post filled with pies from around town, in no particular order. Think of it as a family photo album of the Mid-South’s pies. There are probably a few more I could add to this list, too. Let me know your favorites in the comments!

Ed. Note: 1. This is an updated post from past year 2. Yes, there is another “Pi Day” on March 14, which refers to the number 3.14 and is also celebrated by eating pie. It’s OK – we can have two pie days.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
