Hungry bulldozers have been chewing away at strips of small bars and eateries in many a Beijing hutong this spring. The latest casualty is Rager Pie, launched by US expat Wilson Hailey a few years back after he was challenged to make a pumpkin pie for a Thanksgiving party. Tiny Rager has developed a huge fan base for its irreverent humor and Pie in the Face Fridays as well as its appealing array of eats, from sweet pies like pecan and apple to savory gems like curry, chicken pot pie and "lamburger". Saturday will be the closing day: Last chance for pies, a "pie shake" (pick a pie to throw in a blender with ice cream) and Rager's signature nitro coffees.

Rager Pie, 10 Fensiting Hutong, Dongcheng district, Beijing. 186-0003-1390.
