It’s pi(e) day, 3.14, get it?!
"It’s pi(e) day, 3.14, get it?! Cute puns aside, we are celebrating at @erikaachan. If you’re I the west loop, join the pi(e) Party and grab a slice, or cobble together your own frankenpie with your choice of flavors! You’re looking at Lemon Meringue pie, bourbon pecan pie, strawberry cheesecake pie, peanut butter mousse pie, chocolate chess pie, and the show stopper, a lattice topped caramel apple pie. Don’t let this delicious “holiday” pass you by!! 📷: erika Chan"

The February chocolate chip
"The February chocolate chip cookie day selection. Across the top are our seasonal friends- a chocolate chip cookie topped muffin, a Black Forest cherry cookie, a red velvet chocolate chip whoopee pie, and a strawberry chocolate chip rice crispy treat that’s better than the dipped fruit!"
