It’s Thursday, March 14, which is an important day for any math whiz, and those looking for a cheap meal.
Pi Day, an important foundation of mathematics, most importantly in the world of physics, engineering and geometry, is, well, simply a great day. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It’s the annual celebration of the mathematical constant π.
Pi Day is observed on March 14, in honor of 3.14, since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of the Greek letter π.
However, the day also features deals at restaurants and grocery stores, including pies sold at Whole Foods today for $3.14 and 7/11 is selling slices of pizza for the same price. BJ’s is getting in on the action with a mini pizza for $3.14 while a slice of pizza at California Pizza Kitchen also goes for the identical amount. Marie Calendar’s, Blaze Pizza, Fresh Bros., Polly’s Pies and more have similar bargains on food.
Yum! Have a great Pi Day!
