Pi Day, the annual celebration of the mathematical constant of pi (π, or 3.14), is celebrated the world over by mathematicians and academics. But for the rest of us, it’s an excuse to eat pie!
These days, Pi Day (March 14) is observed by anyone who expresses a passing interest in pie, be it fruit-based, sweet potato, or of the pizza “pie” variety. To that end, several grocers and restaurant chains have started advertising deals on all sorts of pies and pie-related offerings — and you don’t even have to be a know-it-all, smarty-pants mathlete to take advantage of ‘em.
After all, why do they get to have all the fun and/or pies?
