Chicago-area residents get to celebrate Pi Day by acknowledging the importance of math, and pi, in our lives by enjoying pie-related specials and discounts. Illinois Science Council announces the 2018 list of Chicago-area bakeries and restaurants offering pie specials on Pi Day, 3.14. Since 2009 ISC has recruited bakeries, restaurants, and pizza purveyors to offer pie-related specials on Pi Day for the public to enjoy for their own Pi Day celebrations.
ISC is a nonprofit promoting science, technology, engineering and math, and also hosts the Pi Day “Pi K” 3.14-mile fun run in Chicago and Oak Park. When you visit to get your pie, tell ’em ISC sent you!
