The Big Thaw Has Begun!
Kia ora Pie Lovers,
We made it. Daylight Saving is here. A river runs through Brooklyn as two months' worth of snow and ice melts. And there's a distinct whiff of spring in the air at Dub Pies HQ... or is that peach pie? The kitchen is humming, and we're excited for the sunny season ahead.
Better still, Super Mega Pi Day* is just around the bend. Just as Dub Pies is your constant in all things savory pastryness, Pi is your constant in things mathematical. Pi = 3.14. March 14th. This Saturday. Swing by the Pie Shop or the Pie Truck on Saturday, where you'll find all sweet pies are just $3.14.
You'll find the Pie Truck parked up next to the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on West 47th Street (11.30am to 6.30pm) because the great folk at The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time wanted to celebrate Pi Day too (since their main character has an extraordinary brain).
Dub Pies HQ
* Why "Super Mega Pi Day"? - 3/14/15 at 9:26.53am will the date equivalent of the first 10 digits of pi (3.141592653). Celebrate by eating lots of pies!

NEW ZEALAND PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL NEW YORK
Groundbreaking Kiwi Theatre at La Mama
12 - 29 March 2015
We like our culture at Dub HQ and there's great stuff in this exciting performance festival starting this week in the East Village. There's definitely something for everyone, from Arthur Meek's brilliantly bonkers PowerPoint presentation On The Conditions and Possibilities of Hillary Clinton Taking Me as her Young Lover, to Sam Trubridge's award-winning art/science performance Sleep/Wake, to James Nokise's Samoan hip hop comedy So So Gangsta.
ANZAC DAY EVENTS
Rockefeller Center Commemoration Ballot
Next month is the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. That's an immense statistic. The event occupies such a huge place in the military and cultural history of New Zealand and Australia.
This year the New York commemorations include a Dawn Service at 5.30am on Saturday 25th April at the Vietnam Veterans Plaza, 55 Water Street, and a Commemorative Sunday Service on Sunday 26th April at the ANZAC Memorial Garden, Rockefeller Center.
The Dawn Service is open to everyone, but the ANZAC Memorial Garden service has extremely limited capacity (it is a tiny rooftop space). So, there is a ballot system to allocate the available seats. A maximum of two (2) passes will be allocated for each successful ballot. These will be confirmed in the week of 20 April.

Visit Our Hood!
As the weather warms up, it really is the right time to swing by The Pie Shop for the perfect Flat White espresso experience, made with Counter Culture beans and a whole lotta love, plus daily pie specials straight from the warmer.
The Pie Shop is right next to Prospect Park on the F and G trains, and our neighbours include Black Bear vintage, the excellent Terrace Books, Argyle Yarn Shop and the Double Windsor craft beer pub, alongside some older Brooklyn haunts and history.
Did you know that The Pie Shop is the exact corner that Harvey Keitel's character photographs in the film Smoke? "It's just one little part of the world, but things take place there too just like everywhere else." Come and check out our little part of the world.
