Of course going to a place called “Dangerously Delicious Pies” for Pie Day seems like a no-brainer. DDP is a one-of-a-kind combination of bakery and rock n’ roll, having been founded by rock star Rodney “The Pie Man” Henry, front man for the Glenmont Popes. DDP serves nothing but pie, although some of its pies are entrees – like shepherds pies and meat pies – rather than deserts. For Pie Day, there are no rules or restrictions, but if you are coming in to get your hands on a savory slice of desert-based goodness, prepare to be blown away by the awesome selection of hand-made pies with no additives or preservatives.

Fenwick Bakery has over a 100 year legacy in Maryland, passing down from a proud Swedish immigrant tradition. While it has closed and re-opened a few times under different names, and at new locations, the legacy has remained attached to the original family, and the old-country quality of baking has remained ingrained in the goods it has produced since 1913. Stop in on Pie Day and grab a personal fruit tart (sure not to disappoint), or a good, old fashioned pie from its old traditional menu of things like cheese, custard, mince or royal. Or grab any of the more familiar fruit pies, like apple or cherry. If you want to make your own pie for the special day, Fenwick actually sells its in-house recipe pie shells or dough for those who want some do-it-yourself action.
