Want to impress your Thanksgiving guests with tasty pies but lack the baking chops to make them yourself? Enter Pietisserie’s Sweet Thursday, a 24-hour pie sale taking place from noon next Wednesday until noon on Thanksgiving. Pietisserie’s owner, Jaynelle St. Jean, envisions the event as a sweeter, less hectic version of Black Friday. It’s also named after the novel Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck (who St. Jean happens to be related to). During Sweet Thursday, customers can choose from a selection of unique pies, including pumpkin pie with chocolate crust, lemon ginger pie, fresh beet pie, spiced apple pie, raspberry pie with chocolate crust, and black bottom walnut pie. Stop by anytime — even in the middle of the night — to pick up a pie on a whim, or place your order in advance via Pietisserie’s website.
