The fourth annual Summer Pie Contest at RecordBar (1020 Westport Road, 816-753-5207) is the brainchild of Sarah Star Wilkison. "Our aim is to celebrate the art of baking but also encourage people to think outside of the box or tin," she says of this competition. Pies are judged on the following: pre-sliced, post-sliced and overall impression — criteria that apply to most things. Last year's winner, by Emily Beth Schmidt, was a crushed-pretzel crust filled with chocolate mousse and topped with fresh strawberries. Mmmm. The contest is free to enter, and you'll need to bring your written recipe. Arrive at 2 p.m. For more information, search for RecordBar Pie Contest on Facebook.
