Alyce,
Just a quick glance at the Saturday itinerary tells me there may be pie at some of these stops, but it is not a focal point the way it is at Hoosier Mama.  Besides, you've got 24 hours separating Hoosier Mama from any other Pie Activity you might partake in on Saturday.  I say eat pie while you can, and leave the mixed greens for another day.

    Alyce, Honeypie, does, in fact, sell pie.
     
    Also, there is a coupon for Babe's in the same Entertainment book as where the JPFeff fam found the Dr Dawg coupons. I have one of each right now, the resident Coupon Queen @ work may be bringing more for me to work today.

      Alyce,
       
      Hoosier Mama's is in a class of its own (meaning 2nd to only Pie Diva).  Do not miss going there.  There may be pie Saturday, but remember these words - "Pie today or pie tomorrow? What would Buffetbuster do?"
       
      Karl Ratzsch's is on the top of my list for German.  Pie Diva & I dined there recently and it may be even better than ever.   I know that the MFL's rate the restaurant highly.

        They have good pie at Cafe Lulu, right across the street from Babe's.

          Perfect!!!
           
          And I was going to ask ALyce to bring some Hoosier Mama pies for tomrrow, but that is up to her if she wants to share.

            I have better things to do with my time than go to Lulu. 
            I'll be across the street enjoying coffee at Stone Creek if y'all decide to stop in to Lulu.

              Never too much pie, Alyce.  Never.

                Perhaps I'll join you.  Mrs. Chicken likes coffee and since she won't be part of the festivities I suppose I could take some home to her; at the very least I can pop in and grab some.

                  There are a lot of little shops down there, something for everyone.
                   
                  Is anyone else getting excited????

                      At $20 a pop for a pie, I can say with confidence, we will be happy with anything you bring. (coconut cream, blueberry, key lime, chocolate, cranberry chess, s'more, shall I go on?) I'm sure they're all wonderful, your choice!!!!!

                        I echo the sentiment in support of Hoosier Mama-- it's really marvellous. But it's also tiny, so you may be eating your pie à la trunk. Honeypie has good pie, too, but not as good as Hoosier Mama's and Pie Diva's. (Note: Honeypie also does savory pies [pasty-style pies] that are very tasty, too.) Never had pie at Lulu. Alterra Cafe (close to Lulu) also has pie available part of the year, but I'm not sure if their pie season has begun.

                                      I just had a thought, and we can play things as they go, but tomorrow is Sweetest Day, a holiday I could not care any less about, but apparently some people do. I am going to guess that, unless we have a reservation, Ginger and possibly Riviera Maya and even Honeypie may be out. Just want everyone to keep that in mind.

                                            Were you there for that part?
                                             
                                            Me & Mrs Roadhouse are window shopping with the Froeman_Maki  Alliance, and I saw the turtles in a store windown & went, "Oh look!!!!! A pet shop!!!!!"
                                             
                                             
                                            Imagine the look of happiness on my face turn into confusion and then sheer HORROR as I saw what they had in the rest of the store--FOOD!!!

                                              Wow, this thread is taking an inappropriate turn...how odd.

                                               
                                              Really?  With our crowd?  I'm surprised it took this long. 
                                               
                                              In fact, when it comes to "inappropriate", you're usually the prime suspect!

                                                  Really?  People go out to special dinners for Sweetest Day??  It's like the ultimate Hallmark holiday...I don't think I've ever even known anyone who did anything to observe it.

                                                    Almost every time I've been to Honeypie it's been busy, so we may have to wait for a table regardless. I'm not sure they take reservations, so if we get there early enough we may be okay. Ginger probably takes reservations, but if we get there at around 5:30 it may be fine. If not, there are other places in that area to go to.

                                                          ANNIE, IF YOU'RE OUT THERE, READING THIS: Work has been crazy this week. When I wasn't answering the phones, I was putting out fires. I think you called me, not sure. I could check my voicemail to be sure, but why? I am planning on leaving the 'sha in plenty of time to be to you by 8:30ish. (basically i am sleeping in my car) When I get off the freeway in your neighborhood, I will give you a call & you can direct me. I have a blanket in the car & may throw another blanket or two in there.
                                                           
                                                          I have maps, itineraries & phone lists for everyone. I even paperclipped them together. Well, I didn't, but Annie might tomorrow.
