Blaze Pizza honors Pi Day with $3.14 pizza

Pi Day got its start at the Exploratorium in San Francisco back in 1988, when physicist Larry Shaw organized a circular march and a bout of pie consumption to celebrate 3/14.

Tuesday is March 14 and area grocery stores and eateries are using the occasion to celebrate food instead of math. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, a seemingly infinite measure.

-The earliest reference to Pi was in Egypt, around the year 1650 BC.

- The true "randomness" of pi's digits - 3.14 and so on - has never been proven.

At Spreadshirt, you can find a ton of Pi shirts, and possible markdowns once the day arrives!

Village Inn: $2 discount on pies Monday and Tuesday at participating locations, while supplies last. The tradition has grown to embrace math enthusiasts from all walks of life. Good through March 14.

According to PiDay.org, mathematicians have calculated pi to more than one trillion digits beyond the decimal point.
