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.
