Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world. The Greek letter Pi (?) represents a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Celebrate the pi with these well-rounded deals.
Pi Day Food Deals in Wichita
BJs Restaurant and Brewhouse
Dine in at BJs and get a mini one-topping pizza for $3.14 on Pi Day, Thursday, March 14. As usual, tax and tip aren’t included in this offer.
On March 14, participating Blaze Pizza will help you celebrate Pi Day by offering $3.14 whole pizzas all day at its Wichita location (2692 N. Greenwich Court), and each location across the country. The deal is only available via its app for in-store purchases, and in participating restaurants; one Pi-Day priced pizza per guest.
While you’re munching on pizza, you can consider these fun facts Blaze sent us, and then realizing how much better we celebrate it than they did in 1988 (but hey – they were just getting started):
- Pi Day is celebrated each year on March 14, to commemorate the irrational number of 3.141592653
- In 2009 the US government recognized March 14 as National Pi Day
- Pi is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It’s an irrational number, meaning it cannot be written as a simple fraction
- March 14 is also Einstein’s birthday. He was born in Germany in 1879. (Happy birthday, Einstein!)
- The first organized Pi Day was in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Physicist Larry Shaw had the idea to celebrate the day by marching around a circle and then eating some pies
Cheddars Scratch Kitchen has a Pi Day offer on my favorite type of pie – chicken pot pie! According to its website, when you order a Cheddars Homemade Pot Pie on 3/14, you get a second pot pie to bake at home! The regular price of a Cheddars pot pie starts at $8.49, so this is quite the deal.
At Cici’s, use this printable coupon to get the adult buffet for $3.14 with the purchase of an adult buffet order and large drink on Pi Day. It is similar to a deal Cici’s offered for Pi Day last year in Wichita, but as usual pricing and participation may vary.
Thanks to Sherry for telling us about this deal. All of Copper Oven’s pie slices will be $1.99 on March 14, 2019. Mmmm. You should get it as dessert after trying one of Copper Oven’s delicious salads.
Kroger (aka Dillons) grocery stores will have a selection of bakery fresh whole pies on sale for $3.14 each on 3/14/2019. What a deal! The offer was posted on its bakery department web page.
Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza in College Hill
On Thursday, March 14, get an authentic wood-fired Margherita pizza from Il Vicino, which is topped with their house recipe marinara, mozzarella cheese, and basil, for only $3.14. There’s a limit of 5 per order, for dine-in or take-out. (Not available for delivery or online ordering.)
You don’t even need a food holiday or a deal to go here, but Milkfloat (in Delano) IS offering a Pi Day deal, so Thursday is definitely a great day to go! They’ll have slices of their Scratch Cherry Pie on sale for $3.14 a slice.
Of course, once you get there you might be lured by the key lime pie, Reese’s Cup pie, Thin Mint pie (my fave), cold brew cheesecake, and all the other delicious and fun desserts. And what is pie without coffee? You won’t be disappointed.
Tag a friend on Village Inn’s Instagram post here for a chance to win a free whole pie card. Or you can just save $2 off whole pies on Wednesday, 3/13 and Thursday, 3/14! That’s two days of Pi discounts. (Thanks to MileHighontheCheap.com for alerting us to this offer.)
For those of us who would rather not have hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrups in our Pi Day treats, Whole Foods Market is celebrating Pi(e) Day with $3.14 off large bakery pies, with an additional 10% off for Prime members. Pie varieties vary by region, but expect to find classic flavors in store. This deal is only valid in the U.S. on March 14, while supplies last. Source
One non-food related Pi Day “special”
And while the rest of us are pretending to celebrate anything other than the circumference of the food going into our mouths, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has actually come up with some mathematical problems for kids to solve for its Pi-in-the-Sky challenge again in 2019. It’s actually quite interesting, and geared toward K-12 students.
The math problems were posted on March 9 but I didn’t hear about it until today, so you better get busy solving! The solutions will be posted on March 15.
Happy Pi Day!
