Facts about pi on Pi Day
Thursday is March 14, also known as 3/14, also known as “Pi Day.”
And in Wichita, that means you can get a whole lot of pizza pie and dessert pie at a discount that you don’t have to be a math geek to understand.
Several local restaurants are offering deals to celebrate “pi,” which in math “circles” is the circumference of any circle divided by its diameter, also known as 3.14159265359.
Luckily, local restaurants are willing to round down to $3.14.
Here are some of the Pi Day deals Wichita can take advantage of on Thursday. If there’s one I missed, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll add it to my list on my Dining with Denise Facebook page.
