Bakeries & Restaurants with Pi Day Specials

March 14

Since 2009 Illinois Science Council (ISC) has recruited bakeries, restaurants, and pizza purveyors to offer pie-related specials on Pi Day for people to enjoy in their own Pi Day celebrations. Our mission is promoting science, technology, engineering and math so we encourage businesses to offer pie specials and customers to enjoy pie on Tuesday, March 14 to acknowledge the importance of math, and pi, in our lives. Visit these 2017 participating establishments and tell them ISC sent you!
