Buy or Bake Your Way to a Smile! It’s National Pie Day In & Around Marina del Rey

“PIE.” Just the word brings a smile to your face, doesn’t it? There’s a reason for that — pie is one of the greatest creations on the planet. And guess what? Monday (TODAY!), January 23rd is National Pie Day — aka: the day it’s almost patriotic to dive fork-first into some flaky, sweet pie goodness.

To celebrate, you’re obviously obliged to have at least one slice for yourself, but you can also honor the holiday by hosting a pie party after work, surprising friends or co-workers with a pie, giving a pie to the local fire or police station (as a thank you for their selfless work) or brush up on your pie baking skills just for the fun of it!
