Thursday, March 14, is National Pi Day, a day to observe the Greek symbol for a constant, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. While it’s a day to reflect on mathematics, it’s also a great excuse to find deals on the edible types of pi(e) — both the dessert and pizza.
Pi is roughly 3.141592653589793238462; it’s commonly shortened to 3.14, hence the play on today’s date. Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia restaurants and retailers are offering freebies and deals on pies, pizza, T-shirts, tech and more to mark the day, says Offers.com.
