The Mourning Pie Cocktail

By Ann R. Tuennerman, Founder of Tales of the Cocktail

In New Orleans, a Hubig’s pie isn’t just a treat. It’s a culinary tradition. So when a devastating fire destroyed the legendary Hubig’s factory last Friday morning, we knew we had to pitch in to keep that tradition alive. Hubig’s Pies have been the official snack food of Tales of the Cocktail for many years and fed our staff and volunteers. Tales of the Cocktail partnered with Fleurty Girl for a special Save Hubig’s event on Thursday, August 2 from 5–7pm at the Fleurty Girl store located at 3117 Magazine Street. Hubig lover’s joined in the cause and celebrated with a complimentary Hubigs-inspired cocktail created by Chris Hannah of French 75 while picking up one of Fleurty Girl’s exclusive Hubig’s t-shirts. All profits from the sale of each shirt went directly to the Bowman and Ramsey families to help them rebuild their factory and put their legendary pies back on the shelf.

New Orleans Events

Where Ya’t from!!! You know you are a New Orleans Local if you know what I mean when I say ‘we’re makin’ groceries or I ask how’s your mam-ane’m’, and that’s who Brett and Cheryl Bauman and WVUE FOX8 are. New Orleans is a city that you just can’t help but fall in love with; from its history and culture, to its fine cuisine that can only be described as uniquely Nawlins. We wanted to give us Locals a single resource guide that describes all of the fascinating things that our city has to offer to us every day and we have done it through the creation of is a New Orleans Event Calendar website that is designed on three words: Simple, Complete, and Local. New Orleanians have no single source to go to, to find out what is happening around in the city. Normally, we just ask our friends where they are going or try to sift through the endless internet. We have solved this problem with a simple-to-use Calendar. The calendar is arranged by events that are organized by date into categories such as Music, Food, and Festivals.  So, if you want to know what is happening this weekend in the music world, you can select the music category on the calendar and find out who is playing where in the city. If you don’t know what you want to do this week, you can check out our top picks for the week of fun things to do. If you have a fun event that you recommend, submit your event to us and we will add it to our calendar. It is that simple.
