Attention, Hubig’s Pie fans: run out and buy all the Hubig’s Pies you can carry, or you may have to do without. As of 5 am, a 5-alarm fire raged at the Hubig’s Dauphine Street production facility in the Faubourg Marigny, and the garage entrance had collapsed. Read more about it here. UPDATE: the facility was a total loss.
Here’s hoping that no one is injured and the fire is contained in such a densely packed neighborhood.
I am glad to hear that they will rebuild and rebound from this! I have been enjoying Hubig Pies for years. Even though I left New Orleans in 2008, I always try to bring a week’s worth of pies back with me to Georgia every time I come home. I can’t wait for this New Orleans tradition to return!
Everyone has a soft spot for Hubigs…
Any thoughts on people selling the pies on Ebay for fifteen bucks a pop?
The eBay frenzy is a bit much….
