If you haven't placed an order for that delicious Thanksgiving pie yet, you better act fast — time is running out. Eater called around to many of the top bakeries in the city to find out whether they can still accommodate your pie order, and when you can pick them up this week:

2011_pie_guide1.jpgHill Country Chicken: You have until 9:30 PM tonight to place that pie order.
Magnolia: Some pies left, but they're probably going to stop taking orders around 11 AM tomorrow. The Grand Central, Rock Center, and UWS locations will be open (with limited hours) on Thanksgiving.
Blue Smoke Bakery: You gotta place that order tonight. Blue Smoke will be open on Wednesday (but not Thursday) for pick up.
Four & Twenty Blackbirds: New York's hottest pie shop is TOTALLY BOOKED for Thanksgiving orders, but there will be a select number of pies available on Wednesday and Thursday (starting at 8 AM). Note: there's a strict two pie per person limit — choose wisely.
