AUGUSTA (WFXG) - March 14th is National Pi Day. The Greek letter Pi represents the mathematical constant 3.14, which is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
Pi Day was first observed at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988.
Several area restaurants have deals on “pies,” pizza and otherwise, to celebrate:
Hungry Howie’s: Through Thursday, Mar. 14, with the purchase of any Howie Bread at regular menu price, get a medium one-topping pizza for $3.14 with promo code 19PI. Carry out orders only. Florida locations are not participating in this promotion.
Slice: A mobile app that works with more than 10,000 pizzerias is offering $7 off pizza orders Thursday for new users with promo code LOCALPI7. This is for credit card orders and only on a user’s first order with the app. “Minimum order total after deductions and promotions must be $15.50,” the offer’s fine print states.
