Pick Up Pie, But Leave Your Laptop at Home

Four and Twenty Blackbirds Pie Flight
With T-Day just around the corner pies are in their glory this time of year. Pumpkin, apple, cranberry, pear, squash, we love you all. Four & Twenty Blackbirds, our go to pie purveyor in the Slope, is selling whole pies for the holiday starting on Tuesday (and cutting off weekend laptop users starting this weekend)...

This just in from the Four & Twenty Blackbirds FB page:

"To our loyal weekend customers - due to our increasingly busy weekends, we must limit laptop usage to the following hours: Saturday from 5pm to 7pm and Sunday from 5pm to 6pm. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you soon!"

Now I've been guilty of holing up in a coffee house with my laptop to get some work done. I try to make several purchases to justify my space, but I totally see where the Four & Twenty folks are coming from in limiting peak hour laptop use. They do a lot of by the slice business and it kind of sucks when you go to a coffee house (or pie shop) to have dessert and discover that all the seats in the house are taken by people using the spot as their own personal office (or coff-ice, if you will).

Now on to the most important news...the Thanksgiving pie schedule.

They will have whole pies for sale in the shop November 23rd through 25th. To make sure there are lots of pies on hand they won't be serving other baked goods or pie by the slice. The early bird gets the pie...

Ah, NYC, I want to eat you up.
Too bad you're so far away.
