Sunday is “Pi Day”, a day celebrating the savory, the sweet and the numbers 3, 1 and 4.
Pi Day is a combination of math and the calendar. A few years ago, those in the food industry decided to use the numbers 3,1 and 4 (as in the numerical date of March 14) to establish a day to honor pies.
The day was chosen because it reflects the first three numbers of “pi,” or the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The first three digits of pi are 3.14.
As a result, you can look for deals on pies – both pizza ones and desserts – this weekend. Here are a few restaurants taking part in the celebration:
