The Pie Hole Tuesday, August 26
Believe it or not, Tonya Saidi's new brick and mortar pie shop is already up and running and ready to go. On Tuesday, the new The Pie Hole will open its doors at 2329 North 7th Street. Siadi says the espresso machine will be ready to go so she'll be serving both coffee and her well-loved pies. Also also says she's trying to crowd-fund money to purchase a better oven for the space. A $25 donation purchases you a brick with your name to go outside the restaurant (100 available), while a $50 donation can get you a namesake pie on the menu. Fans can also support the cause by buying a membership to the Pie of the Month Club, six months for $100 or 12 months for $200. For more information check the crowdfunding website.
