Mathematicians, cool nerds, and pie lovers unite! March 14 = 3.14 = Pi Day!
You don’t have to know that π = the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter to celebrate. You just need a sweet tooth.
It may be snowy, windy, and frigid, but there are still a few open bakeries that are providing us a way to eat pie in honor of pi:
Four & Twenty Blackbirds — the original Gowanus location 439 Third Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets plus their brand new Prospect Heights shop at 634 Dean Street — is selling 3 slices of pi(e) $14. Read more about their new location here. (Note the Central Library location is closed due to the snow)
Daly Pie, 665 Vanderbilt Avenue, will be also be serving 3 slices of pie for $14 all day today in celebration of Pi Day.
The next two shops aren’t offering any specials, but they are open today in this winter stormy weather, so get cozy with a slice of pie in these warm neighborhood cafes.
Pels Pie Co., 446 Rogers Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, doesn’t have any pie specials today but they are open with a full menu of delicious sweet pies. Check out our review here.
Dub Pies, 211 Prospect Park West, or Down Under Bakery, specializes in the well-known handmade Australian/New Zealand-style meat pies (with great veggie options). Check out our full savory review here.
