    The No. 1 restaurant trend for 2011 will be: PIE!

    From National Restaurant News:

    "Pies, both sweet and savory, will be the top restaurant trend in 2011, a California consultancy predicts.

    Andrew Freeman, whose Andrew Freeman & Co. of San Francisco consults on marketing for restaurants and hotels nationwide, detailed some top trends in a webinar Wednesday.

    “If I had one trend — one trend — of the year that I could predict, that’s why it’s in the No. 1 position, this would be the trend for pie," he said. "I think that we’re going to make room for pie shops in the next year.”

    He said it follows on the heels of cupcake shops.

    Freeman noted that Hill Country Chicken in New York City even sponsors a “Pie Happy Hour” to showcase its wide variety of pies from whiskey-buttermilk to apple-cheddar and more traditional banana and coconut cream pies.


    “This is not just sweet pies, this is savory pies, bite-sized pies. They are even blended into milkshakes,” he said. “I’ll eat pie if I don’t get this one right at the end of the year.” "

    I hope you all see the relevance of this to us: if pies are blended into milkshakes, we all know what goes into our water bottles from here on out...

    This is news worth celebrating. Perhaps a nice piece of pie is in order.

    Does this mean another or more pie rides? Maybe next time we can find a local pie place other than WalMart.

    Maybe they saw how many cyclists were out eating pie on International Pie Day?

    It's the interwebs, man. They just make this stuff up. And then it comes true.

    I love the idea of "Happy Pie Hour", but I'll pass on the "pie milkshake", thank you.

    Must be due to the increasing number of 50 plus cyclists.

    Seems that you are looking hard to tie Pie into biking.

    No need to look- Pie and Bike mean the same thing to some of us.
