This year the world and math lovers everywhere celebrate a special Pi Day. In 2015 we celebrate the first 5 digits of Pi (3.1415) rather than the (now) traditional first 3. Pi is the Greek letter “π” and “is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.”

The first known Pi Day celebration with fruit pies was at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988. In 2009 the U.S. House of Representatives recognized March 14th as National Pi Day. Since 1988 there have been a variety of Pi Day celebrations especially with pies of all kinds. Fremont’s Pie is no exception.

Fun Fact: The majority of the world follows a Date/Month system unlike the United States’ Month/Date system. Since there is no April 31st (31/4) they don’t get to celebrate Pi Day on their system.

Pie’s Facebook page has been filled with posts counting down the days to Pi Day and detailing the shop’s extensive preparations (a lot of people order pies apparently!).

Pie will open at 11am today until 9pm and reopen for Late Night service at 9:26pm until 2am. There is plenty of time to get your Pi pie.

The Pi Day Menu:

Savories: Chicken Pot Pie, English Meat, BBQ Pulled Pork, Channa Masala and Broccoli Cheddar.

Sweets: Dutch Apple, Peach Raspberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, Blueberry, Key Lime and Lemon Raspberry Custard.

All stocked up on delicious Washington grown Apples for our Pi day extravaganza! In less than a week will be the biggest Pi day of the century 3.14.15 & we are WELL prepared this year! From Noon-3:14pm for 3.14 hours we will be selling ALL fruit pies for just $3.14! We will also have special Pi themed pies all day long. It’s going to be an ahhhmazing day!

Did you catch that? ALL fruit pies for $3.14 from Noon to 3:14 today. Don’t miscalculate when you head out for some pie.

Enjoy this Pi Day of the Century! #pidayofthecentury

P.S. This post came live on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 am (the first 10 digits of Pi)
