Pi Day Bakery & Restaurant PIE Promotion

March 14, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 pm


On March 14, or 3.14, the whole world stops (well, it should) to celebrate the mathematical ratio of the circle’s diameter to its circumference, i.e., the constant “pi”. As your go-to source for an awesome Pi Day, Illinois Science Council recruits bakeries and restaurants throughout Chicagoland to offer pi(e)-themed specials on Pi Day.  We list them all for you here so you know where you can deliciously enhance your own Pi Day celebrations.

We’ll keep adding to the list, so if you know a pi-worthy place, tell them to send us details on their promotion to PiDay@IllinoisScience.org.
