Key Lime Pie, at scale

Around 3:45 today, my coworker Claire dropped a link into our company IRC channel that the “World’s Largest Key Lime Pie” was going to be served at South Station at 4pm. By 3:50 we were on our way over, and arrived just in time to see the un-sullied pie before they began to serve.

The event was a publicity stunt for the Florida Keys, which felt like pretty good timing given the weather we’ve had lately—but most importantly, it afforded a chance to get some free pie on a Thursday afternoon! And it was a good pie, too, weighing in at about a thousand pounds and containing nearly six thousand key limes and two hundred pounds of graham crackers.
