Where to Enjoy Pi Day (3/14)
I don’t know about you, but as a kid, math was about as fun as doing chores. But if there’s one thing that’s burned into our minds from our math class days, it’s pi. We learned that pi, or 3.14, is a circle’s circumference to its diameter. This is why every March 14th, we celebrate Pi Day! Thankfully, we won’t be solving math problems, because we’ll be too busy enjoying a delicious slice of pie. Check out these fantastic pie shops to celebrate Pi Day in the best way!

Some you’ll want to check out include their Betty’s Berry Crumble Pie or the Thanksgiving Pot Pie.
