25% Summer discount!*, Pie Truck News, Upcoming Events
Hi Pie Lovers!!!
As we write, the torrential rain and thunder and lightning is giving summer a bit of a kick in the pants here in New York City, but it's great for the gardens. Can't be bothered going out in the rain to feed the family? Make sure you have a freezer full of Dub Pies for times like these! Read on for this month’s tasty discount...
Manhattanites - we have some news. We closed our West Village store at 123 West 3rd St a couple of weeks ago. It simply wasn't performing as well as the mighty Pie Truck, so we've made the tough but smart decision to focus on the truck. We hope you're not too inconvenienced by this, and we are massively grateful for your support.

In case you missed it last time - the truck has already has some awesome press and is being mentioned in the same breath as some of NYC's big-hitting food trucks. This article in Business Insider names us as one of the 9 Food Trucks to try this summer!
We've switched from the cool weather menu sides of mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy offering some summery sides like bean salad and potato salad. We plan to bring the "pea, pie and 'pud" back in Autumn.
We now send out an email most days that you'll only receive if you have opted in to receive - pertaining to specific locations you've asked to be informed about. You can sign up to be informed of your preferred locations here.
We continue to send out Kickstarter rewards, so if you helped us out and haven’t heard from us, don’t worry - we’re getting to you! It’s taken a lot of labour and love to get the truck on the road and we haven’t forgotten your generosity, not for a second.
We've tended to focus our efforts on all things savory when it comes to pies but we've recently started expanding our horizons. We admit it, sweet pies can be pretty awesome too!
To whit - have you tried our delicious new Cherry Rhubarb Pie? Why not? Get thee to the Pie Truck or the Pie Shop now for a bellyful of this incredible new DubPie.
Take heed - rhubarb is becoming harder to find so you'll have to move fast to get one - soon that pie will return to being a Cherry pie - which is also really outstanding and tends to have us making all manner of Twin Peaks references on social media.
We'll be making the sweet pies available online very soon.
Kiwi Films screening at Rooftop Films:
"The Deadly Ponies Gang" directed by Zoe McIntosh,Wednesday 16 July, 8.00pm Socrates Sculpture Park, 3134 Vernon Boulevard, LIC. FREE.
"The “Deadly Ponies Gang” is comprised of just two people – Clint and Dwayne. The name is not just a nonsensical gang title – they actually ride ponies. Living on the edges of New Zealand makes traveling from point A to B a chore, so the duo has decided to ride it and, of course, they have to ride in style."
Where better to see the film's international premiere than in a riverside sculpture park in New York City?!
PS Watch the trailer.
