Delicious New Pies, Discount, Truck News
Kia ora Pie Lovers,
As we write, we're noticing a subtle change in morning temperatures. Day times can still be scorching, but true pie weather is just around the corner! Don't get us wrong, summer is great. But PIE SEASON RULEZ - end of story!
There's plenty of gravy-laden goodness for you in this month's newsletter - including our famed monthly discount that we know so many of you wait for! We thought it might be a good time to remind you that the discount is only made available to recipients of this newsletter and to our social media friends - ie not just any ol' anybody off the street gets this special treatment!
That said, our raison d'etre is to grow pie culture in this amazing country. Imagine what could have been achieved if Americans had known from birth that pies don't have to be sweet! The mind really boggles!
We want to grow our Dub Pies Family - so feel free to send this newsletter to all your mates whom you think would appreciate having us ship them some pies, or who might want to know when the Pie Truck is parked outside their office window. Really, there can't be many things worse than having a hankering for a pie & a flat white in NYC only to look out the window and see the Pie Truck leaving the spot its been vending from for the last 3 hours!!
Read on for details of a contest we're having for forwarding our email!
Love, Dub Pies HQ

It seems there's a new challenge for the truck each week - but we've come to realize that's very much par for the course - so we won't bore you with stories about stuff like ongoing generator issues. (Oops, sorry!)
It's been a very educational first season on the streets of NYC and there's no doubting the truck has raised awareness about our brand - so we're quite chuffed about how things have been going!
We are a finalist in the "Rookie of the Year" category of the 10th Annual edition of the Vendy Awards!
This year's event will be held September 13th on Governor's Island - so if you haven't checked out the island this summer - this would be a great day to come out and check out some amazing street food.
You're the first to hear that the event will be the debut appearance of the inimitable "Pea, pie & 'pud" combo. Yea, verily we say, other Rookies should be quaking in their gumboots about now!
REGULAR PIE TRUCK LOCATIONS
We do our best to return to popular locations around NYC but it's a constant dance with the police, the city and other trucks. Sometimes, just when we think we've sorted out a great spot, we lose it or get the "bum's rush."
With that said, here's a link to our current schedule.
You can also sign up here for the weekly Truckmail newsletter that will update you about where the truck will be that week. You can also select the part of town you want to be informed about should the truck be visiting! And of course, if social media is your thing, you can keep up to date with what what the truck is up to on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
NEW PIE FLAVOURS
We continue to work on bringing you new pie flavours.
Keep an eye on the website for some new additions in the near future that we've been trialing at the cafe and the truck, including:
Cherry Pie (pictured left). This is sensational! Real huge chunks of fleshy cherry with just the right amount of tart, lemony bit to cut the sweetness.
Apple Pie. The age old stand-by and American favourite, but with a special little Kiwi twist (we go easy on the cinnamon, favouring a different secret spice...)
Delaney BBQ Brisket Biscuit. Does what it says on the packet! We think this will take over from the cronut once it's discovered by the NYC masses.. that's if they can get one. These are regular sell-outs.
DUB NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS
THE CLEAN - THIS WEEK!
Rough Trade, Brooklyn, Thurs 21
Glasslands Gallery, Brooklyn, Fri 22
The New Zealand band we've been listening to for 34 years. No, that's not a typo. These guys were there at the beginning of what became known internationally as the Dunedin sound.
They're currently touring the USA and this week they play two Brooklyn shows. Just quietly, we're going to see if we can park the Pie Truck up outside at least one of the shows.
