Terrible. Hope they get up and running somewhere, somehow, and soon.

One of the first things I did after Katrina, I had somehow randomly come across the Hubig's web site and they were out of commission for a while but were selling t-shirts to keep the cash flow going a bit I guess...I bought a couple and still wear one once in a while to concerts or festivals...locals always "get it" and ask about the shirt, or they want to talk about the pies!

How terrible for the people that lost their jobs. Was anyone hurt? It didn't say so on the video, so I'm hoping not.

The report said there was only 1 person on the premises when he/she called in the fire, so I don't think anyone was injured.

We are all sad but they will be back!!

The fire suppresion system did not work right.

The whole neighborhood is covered in ash.

Walked by it this morning and happened to grab 4 pies as Schiros was opening!!

So sad. I'm sorry for the loss of yet another N.O. institution. I hope that Hubigs will find another home soon.

This is truly sad, and must have been scary. But even in the initial article, the owner says "We will rebuild". All the best to the Hubig family and their employees.
