Pie-eyed! Annual social raises money for charity and thickness for your waist

Pie lovers rejoice — the five-slices-for-$20 Bay Ridge pie social is back.

For the second year in a row, a do-gooding treat-makers Justin Brannan and Leigh Jewel Holliday will host their crucial lead-in to Thanksgiving: the Bay Ridge Pie Social.

Yes, 20 bucks gets you five slices — and bakers get the same deal for $5, if they bring two pies — but all the money goes to the Guild for Exceptional Children, which helps children and adults with developmental disabilities.

“We raised about $600 in two hours last year — and ate a whole lot of pie,” said Brannan.

Ah, the win-win situation.

Bay Ridge Pie Social at the Art Room [8710 Third Ave. between 87th and 88th streets in Bay Ridge, (347) 560-6572], Nov. 20, 1 pm. Admission, $20 for five slices ($5 if you bring two pies). To sign up, e-mail bayridgepie@gmail.com.
