Math geeks and pizza fiends unite.

On Tuesday, also known as March 14, also known as 3/14, also known as “Pi Day,” local Il Vicino restaurants will be selling their full-sized margherita pizzas for $3.14159265359 each. (They’re willing to round down to $3.14.)

A nine-inch margherita pizza, which is topped with cheese and fresh-chopped basil, is usually $7.50 – more than twice that price.

On the off-chance you don’t understand this promotion, “pi” is 3.14, the the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Number devotees love pi, and it’s not unusual for March 14 to be celebrated as “Pi Day,” with specials featuring pizza pies and baked pies.

Wichita’s Il Vicino restaurants are at 4817 E. Douglas and 2132 N. Rock Road.

The Kitchen at 725 E. Douglas is serving its chicken pot pie for $3.14 on Tuesday.
