Want to put your pastry skills to the test? This Sunday sees the third annual Bucktown Apple Pie Contest. A fund-raiser organized by the Friends of Holstein Park (who have so far managed to spiff up the field house and grounds with proceeds from previous years), the contest pits 75 bakers amateur and pro in a no-crusts-barred competition to find the best pie in town. Guest judges include Tru's Gale Gand and Nancy Mathieson of the American Pie Council. In addition to all the apple goodness there's a silent auction, live bluegrass, and pumpkin carving for the kids. It's free to wander through; $10 to enter a pie (pregistration required).
