Tomorrow, Saturday, March 14, is Pi Day, a celebration of the mathematical Pi, the Greek letter π. Pi Day is celebrated by math fans around the world on March 14 because Pi = 3.1415926535… This year, Pi Day has special significance because at 9:26:53 am and pm the date and time represent the first 10 digits of π.
Celebrations call for food and we believe any excuse to eat pie is a good thing. Here are a few places to purchase a pie (or two) for Pi Day:
Of course, The Pie Store (100 Wachung Avenue, Montclair, NJ, 07042), is a great place to get pie. I’m personally a HUGE fan of their Key Lime Pie, with their Coconut Cream and Chocolate Mousse Pie tied for second. You can also get variuos fruit pies and if the Banofee Pie is available, try it. Trust me.
At The Little Daisy Bake Shop (622 Valley Road, Montclair, NJ, 07043), you can win a free pie on Pi Day, March 14) if you’re the lucky customer to be rung up closest to 9:26:53 am (following the sequence of pi.). We suggest you buy some of their delicious Whoopie Pies.
Gina’s Bakery (110 Walnut Street, Montclair, NJ, 07042) makes a great pie. They have many flavors, but we recommend the Blueberry Crumb Pie, bursting with ripe blueberries.
Whole Foods Market West Orange (235 Prospect Avenue, West Orange) will offer a great Pi Day deal on its pies and a fun song to listen to while you devour them:
