To promote the upcoming season premiere of the hit ABC show, "Pushing Daisies" takes its roaming "Touch of Wonder" tour bus to the Santa Monica Promenade today, September 10. Starting at 9 am, visitors can get some free pie (from "The Pie Hole"), and giveaways (which, we hear, may include pie cutters, spatulas, magnets and balloons).

SEP 10: "PUSHING DAISIES" ABC SHOW BRINGS TOUR BUS TO SANTA MONICA WITH FREE PIE AND GIVEAWAYS, 9 AM ON THE PROMENADE; THEN AT 6PM ABC AT PALEY CENTER
September 10, 2008. 9 am. Third Street Promenade, somewhere between Wilshire and Broadway, Santa Monica. Sounds like a fun family type event, but all are welcome. Giveaways are, of course, while supplies last. More info: www.pushingdaisiestour.com.
Later today, starting at 6pm, is the last of the annual Paley Center showcases of new Fall shows on the major TV networks. Today's network of choice is ABC -- including a screening of, you guessed it, "Pushing Daisies". We hear the RSVP list is full, but past experience shows that determined folks can often show up to these showcases and still be accommodated. No guarantees, but if you are really into ABC and a polite well-mannered sort, your odds are good.
September 10, 2008. 6 pm food and drink reception, mingling; 7pm creative team Q&A and then show screenings. More info: www.paleycenter.org. Paley Center (formerly the Museum of TV and Radio), on Beverly Drive at Little Santa Monica, Beverly Hills.
