All the mathematically inclined Cheapsters in our audience already knew that St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t the only holiday in the spotlight this weekend. Before everyone pulls out their best impressions of Irish accents, they’d best pull out their protractors and head to Commonwealth Gym (located at 23 N. Rural Street in Indianapolis). Pi Day has arrived at last, and you won’t want to miss the fun.
If you don’t get the math joke, Pi is a mathematical tool involved in measuring the area and circumference of circles. It’s an irrational number that continues to infinity after the decimal point, but an abbreviated version of it is 3.141592654. Don’t doze off yet, because we’re reaching the point of this math lesson. Take the first three digits you see and apply them to the calendar. 3.14 becomes March 14, and that’s today. Hence, today is Pi Day.
This is the 6th annual Pi Day celebration organized by the Near East Side Community Organization. Tickets to attend the festivities are only $3.14 (starting to understand the humor now?), and you’ll find plenty of pie, ice cream, and beverages to enjoy. If you think you have the best pie recipe, you can enter your pie in the Pi Day competition by filling out this form. The cost to enter your pie is pi squared (or $9.86).
