March 14 is National Pi Day. And for all the math geeks out there, Pi Day (aka 3.14) is the quintessential holiday for celebrating the universal number for circumference over diameter.
For the rest of us, Pi Day is a great reminder of the excruciating math problems we spent hours solving back in high school.
And while Pi Day may just seem like a holiday tailored to those who love numbers, it’s also a great excuse to for sweet tooths who love a good pun to binge on Utah’s best pies in honor of this mathematical constant.
So if you’re in the mood for some great pie, and of course, to celebrate the beauty of math, then stop by any of these pie shops and indulge on the best this holiday has to offer!
