first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — In an update to a February 2019 story, Wilmington Apple has learned that Pie Me Over, a gourmet chicken pot pie shop, will be opening in Wilmington this fall.“Due to contractor delays, we estimate the shop will be open in late September or early October,” owner Marje Hammond told Wilmington Apple.The shop, located at the former Fantastic Sam’s location (217 Main Street) inside the Wilmington Crossing plaza, will sell not just chicken pot pies, but other savory pies, including veggie pies, beef pies, and quiches. Pies will be cooked daily and sold in three different sizes (Individual, Duo, & Large) and with four different types of crust. A gluten free chicken pot pie option will also on the menu.The shop is take-out only and will follow the “take and bake” model — customers take home the fresh or frozen pies and bake in their own ovens.Pie Me Over originally opened in Las Vegas in 2014 and received strong reviews from customers, food critics and the local press. The sop, for example, is a prefect average score of 5 stars on Yelp with 122 total reviews.The shop closed in the spring of 2018 after its owners, Marje Hammond and Feliciano Savilengo, relocated to Massachusetts. They’ve selected Wilmington for Pie Me Over’s new home.“Pie Me Over is the first retail pie shop of its kind in Massachusetts and across the country selling unbaked fresh & frozen pies with a variety of crusts,” reads the company’s website. “We felt that most Chicken Pot Pies and other savory pies lacked flavor, and were much too salty. We also strived to perfect the Traditional crust and introduced our own special crusts such as Cheddar, Habanero Cheddar, and fresh Garlic.”Follow Pie Me Over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

A fair for the frenzied

first_imgThough his real name is Siddiq Miah, he is quite all right with the local people calling him ‘Siddiq Pagol’ (mad Siddiq).This 60-year-old farmer has been organising a ‘pagol mela’ (mad people’s fair) in his village Kalagaon in Uttar Sreepur union of Tahirpur, Sunamganj district.Previously the fair was held indoors and included a feast and music. This year it was outdoors and on a much grander scale. The fair even had open-air stalls.This Pagoler Mela was held on Tuesday and Wednesday at the the Kalagaon Government Primary School grounds. The local government officials and the common people joined the ‘mad’ people in the fun.Siddiq said as no one pays heed to the welfare of the mad, and so he arranges this fair and invites everyone from the area. He arranges meals for the two days and the locals also help a lot, he said.As a devotee of Maizbhandari, Siddiq said, “This Pagol Mela is both an urs (a religious congregation) and a fair. We sing and chant prayers (zikr) as if in a frenzy throughout the night. No one bothers about the mad people. Since I am one, I think about the others.”Charagaon dweller Tajul said, “I am a disciple of Baba Bhandari and so is Siddiq Pagol. How can a crazed one not respond to this call?”A local, Ali Hossain, said, “There were some stalls this year with more people. There was music throughout Tuesday night and the observation was dedicated to Maizbhandari.”last_img read more
