It may have been a soggy evening, but the rain didn’t keep Logan Square neighbors from enjoying some delicious pie and coffee at the LoganSquarist September Neighbor Meetup, Sept. 18 at Bang Bang Pie Shop (@bangbangpie, 2051 N. California Ave.).
At first, many tried to brave the downpour under the umbrellas on Bang Bang Pie’s spacious outdoor patio, but after a while the shop’s cozy atmosphere was a welcome relief from the stormy weather.
Pie Oh Pie!
Guests enjoyed free samples of the shop’s three flavors of the day: chocolate-salted caramel, plum and lemon cream. The chocolate was a hit and the first of the samples to run out. The plum pie was a favorite for those who were looking for a refreshing fruit filled pie with a good mix of sweet and savory, and the lemon was a satisfying option for anyone with a sweet tooth.
About 40 neighbors and ambassadors attended the event, with many enjoying the shop’s delicious coffee beverages as well as their own drinks bought for this BYOB event. The crowd was a good mix of Neighbor Meetup regulars and first-timers, with some trying out Bang Bang Pie’s delicious treats for the first time.
While the conversation frequently turned to the extreme weather outside, many neighbors met some new people and discussed common interests including books, biking and upcoming neighborhood events.
The meetup at Bang Bang Pie, with its delicious comfort food and a warm setting, was a great way to kick off the onset of fall, and we hope you will join us for more cozy and comforting treats at our October Meetup, Oct. 16, 7-9 pm at Intelligentsia Coffee (@Intelligentsia, 2642 N. Milwaukee Ave).
