So today is 3/14. That can mean only one thing! It’s Pi Day. The first three digits of the mathematical constant pi are 3.14, a fact that inevitably had to lead to March 14 (3/14)
becoming known as Pi Day. And since pi is most famously the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and since pies are round, well, the most
American of pastries was fated to become associated with pi. And we’re better for it, because eating pie is the best way to celebrate. Fortunately, you don’t have to know much about math to indulge with specials on sweet and savory pies, which
several Chicago and suburban bakeries and restaurants are offering Thursday. Here’s a guide to where to take advantage of the nerdy celebration, for slices to whole pies to hand pies, and yes, pizza pie — most offered at just $3.14.
