Du-par's - pre-order or walk-in!
If you really, really just left things til the very last minute and missed all the pre-order deadlines, Du-par's is here to save your life: while the most popular pies are sold out via pre-orders (I was told they moved literally thousands of pies the day before Thanksgiving!), they know how it goes and always have a batch of extra pies handy for walk-ins on turkey day. I've been able to pick up my 'spare' pies last minute at the Studio City location.
- Pecan pie
- Pumpkin pie
- Cherry pie

Happy Turkey Day everyone!!
