Our middle school math teachers would probably cringe at how little we remember about pi. To refresh your memory: pi is the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a circle. The digits in pi are infinite but most of us only know the first three: 3.14, which is why March 14 (3/14) is National Pi Day.
While there is a clear distinction between pi and pie, some facts hint at a deeper, almost cosmic connection, between the two: Is it really a coincidence that our favorite circular foods also go by “pie”? Is it just an accident that the symbol for pi kind of looks like a drawing of a pie, two smell lines short of a tribute to dessert? This Thursday will be a day of endless pi(e)s: pizza pies, dessert pies, and of course, pi. Here are the companies that are celebrating National Pi Day with deals and freebies.
Blaze Pizza will be offering $3.14 pizzas to any customer who downloads the new Blaze Pizza App on or before March 14. This offer is available at all 314 of the chain’s locations.
