Let Them Eat Cupcakes and Fashionista's Market staged a preview of Georgie Pie's monthly pop-up pie shop at FM's new studio space adjoining its 1185 Bethel St. storefront.

FM owner Alyssa Fung is making the space available to other creatives in town, whether it's a food popup like Georgie Pie, a photographer requiring a studio for a day, or designer looking to set up shop, at an approximate rate of $150 per day to start.

Georgie Pie is a division of Let Them Eat Cupcakes, and owner Kawehi Haug—a former Honolulu Advertiser reporter—said she started experimenting with baking pies a year ago as a followup to her cupcake enterprise.

Baking is in her blood, as she says she learned everything she knows from her mom, whose middle name is Georgeanne, Georgie for short.

Kawehi started selling her pies last fall to test demand, and Georgie Pie will now commandeer the FM Studio every third Thursday and Friday of the month, this month taking place Feb. 20 and 21.

Those are dates to mark in your calender for delicious pies that don't skimp on fresh fruit or other ingredients. You probably never have tried a banana cream pie as divine, rich and thick as Georgie Pie's.

With dinner following the preview, my friends and I went in simply for a small taste, but the nibbling didn't stop because a great pie is a terrible thing to waste. I had to stop one of my friends from devouring the entire slice of banana cream pie before giving me a bite!

Pies are also available by special order. In addition to dessert pies, Georgie Pie offers savory, hand pies filled with beef brisket or beef and potatoes.

Fruit pies run $22 to $26; slices are $4.50; hand pies are $4.50 to $5.50; and savory 4-inch meat pies are $6.
