Tuesday corresponds to offers on pizza pies.
March 14 marks Pi Day, the annual holiday in honor of the mathematical constant π (pi), the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
The irrational number is usually rounded down to 3.14, hence why the celebration takes place on March 14, which has a numerical date of 3/14. The date also happens to be the birthday of the famous physicist Albert Einstein and marks the anniversary of Stephen Hawking’s death.
While the day is really about math, many restaurants are offering deals and discounts on circular foods, including pizza and traditional dessert pies, to celebrate the holiday.

Why is Pi Day celebrated on March 14?
In 1988, Larry Shaw, a former staff physicist at the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco, linked March 14 (3/14) with the digits of pi (3.14) and celebrated the first Pi Day with fruit pies and tea. Shaw led Pi Day parades annually at the museum until his death in 2017, according to the Exploratorium.
Pi Day became an annual tradition at the Exploratorium, and the celebration became an official US national day in 2009. The United States House of Representatives resolution designating Pi Day aims to encourage “schools and teachers to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics.”
Whether you’re a math lover or a foodie (or both), here are some tasty deals you can get on Pi Day. The deals are only available on Tuesdays unless otherwise noted, so be sure to check if your nearest location is participating before you head out.
