Want a late night slice? Of pie?
Dangerously Delicious Pies is now serving up both sweet and savory pies at Third Street Bar in Midtown, seven days a week from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The self described "rock and roll pie shop" moved to the location at Forest and Third last week after operating out of Comet Bar on Henry Street between Clifford and Park for the last year.
Rodney Henry, head honcho of Dangerously Delicious Pies, said the pie shop moved from the often smoky, no-frills Comet Bar to the unused kitchen at Third Street because it was looking for "more action."
"Comet was awesome, but it's a tough spot, ya know? I don't want to say anything bad about it . . . but here we're making product a lot easier and it's better quality, too."
The kitchen at Comet Bar is no longer being used.
Henry teamed up with fellow musician and former River Rouge firefighter Donnie "Doop" Duprie to open the Comet shop after opening Dangerously Delicious Pies locations in Washington, D.C., and his hometown of Baltimore.
"I met some cool cats and one thing led to another," he says. "It's a big science experiment, but I thought, hey, let's give some cats some jobs."
The move to Third Street Bar seems equally breezy. "Once we met Scott Kosiek (the owner of Third Street), that was that," says Henry.
"Just come down here and get pie!" he adds.
