Erica Chayes Wida

Whether you're great at solving math problems or just love food freebies (who doesn't?), National Pi Day is an occasion to be celebrated — and it's just around the corner.

For those who need a refresher, pi is the never-ending mathematical constant beginning with three digits (3.14) and is represented by the Greek symbol "π." The day was officially recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2009, but even before that, it's been a popular day for celebrating round foods.

Many restaurants, both local and national, that sell pizza pies or regular sweet ones take advantage of the day to give customers a slice of the good stuff at a better price. Here's a list of places partying for pi on March 14.
