A slice of pie-ola

Hip-hop pastry, so damn tasty.

Pie negotiations between Fort Collins Now and the other Fort Collins Now are wrapping up and news of that is forthcoming. But other Northern Colorado interests are approaching us -- the pie publishers -- with local, independent pies as signs of affection and calls for attention.

Matt Love stopped by the Rocky Mountain Chronicle office earlier today with a fresh-baked and beautiful apple tart from Olive Street Bakery, located in Old Town Fort Collins. Love confesses that the treat is also meant to sweeten up Chronicle editorial staff to cover Grieves, a Fort Collins-reared, Seattle-based hip-hop artist who will have a CD release party at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins on August 16 and then play the city's New West Fest on August 18.

Grieves covers up his piehole.

A long-standing policy at the Chronicle is to not let pies influence editorial content, but Love and Grieves get points for not dropping off some Hostess fruit pies; you know, the ones that look like frosted catcher's mitts:

Not local, not independent, but not the worst way to spend money on a late-night 7-Eleven run.
