National Pi Day is a day to celebrate pi (π), the mathematical ratio that represents a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and pie (🥮) the delicious dessert. Why? Pi famously goes on forever without repeating but starts with 3.14 – like March 14. The leap from pi to pie is less “rational,” but everyone loves a good excuse to eat dessert!
Check out some of our favorite places to grab a slice on National Pi Day. No math required.
