Random and More Random / San Fran Pie Tour

The Creation of a SF Pie Tour….

Today my boyfriend and I are visiting all the pie places we know of in San Fransisco. The idea is to visit any place with the word “pie” or “tart” in them in SF or a place that has advertised that all they sell are pies. We came up with a list and set out for a pie tour of SF. Why do this? Well, if you love pie as much as we do and are dedicated to the constant pursuit of pie…believing that Pie is in fact the answer, then this fun filled day is worth it. Doing it on a Friday or Saturday is best. It should take a few hours and you will need a car (we used a Zipcar) to get to all of the places. You could theoretically take public transportation, but after eating so much pie you may start to feel like you really really want a car. We went to all of the places and chose their signature pie and a pie of our choice. Each place has multiple pies to offer and I’m sure we’ll be back on the pie hunt soon. My hope is to have a pie tour for Oakland, CA in a couple of weeks. We started the self-designed tour at 10:30am and ended by 5:00pm. A lot of pie places close by 4:00pm..so starting early is best.

P.S- Do not eat breakfast.

The Beginning….

I asked my boyfriend If we should start out with a slice of the blackberry pie I had made and he responded:

“As much as I would love to have a piece of our pie. We have a lot of pie ahead of us….”

Let the pie hunt begin….

Here’s a list of the places we hoped to visit. In the end we were not able to visit all the places on the list because some of them were closed. 😦
