Free pie on National Pi Day March 14
Do you really need a reason to eat pie? Well I've got one for you. Sunday, March 14, 2010 is National Pi Day, a celebration of the number 3.14, which is useful for passing geometry class and getting free pie but not much else. Restaurants use the pseudo-holiday as a good excuse to giveaway free and discounted pie to drum up publicity.
Me, jaded? Not while I'm eating free pie.
