NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – No it’s not the day in January that has everyone rushing out for things filled with fruit or topped with creme or tomato sauce and cheese… today is Pi Day, the annual celebration that has 3.14159265358979 going on, and on, and on.
Pi Day is celebrated every March 14 (yes, on 3-14), to celebrate both the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and the birthday of Albert Einstein.
Pi (Greek letter “π”) has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern.
But I guess a day for all things math and numbers wasn’t necessarily appealing to everyone so there are a number of eateries offering Pi or pie related specials today. Below are just of few of the places where you can get Pi Day deals —
