America’s nerdiest but, perhaps tastiest, holiday is right around the corner. Pi Day falls on March 14 and celebrates the ratio of circumference to diameter in a circle. This essential number is helpful in geometry and also plays an important role when calculating pizza-math. Celebrate with Pi Day with pie of all kinds.
Blaze Pizza will offer their signature build-your-own artisanal pizza for just $3.14. Since their “pop-up” event three years ago, Blaze’s Pi Day celebration has become a fan favorite and annual tradition for the company, and this year they expect to serve close to 250,000 pizzas on Pi Day.
“Math can sometimes be complex, but we think pizza should be simple,” said Jim Mizes, president and COO. “That includes serving fresh, never-frozen dough that’s made in-house daily, using just a few simple ingredients. Because simple ingredients simply taste better.”
Blaze Pizza is located at 643 North Fair Oaks Avenue and 667 East Colorado Boulevard. http://www.blazepizza.com/locations/pasadena/
The Pie Hole
This sweet spot hidden at the back of Indiana Colony on Colorado Boulevard is your number one spot for a sweet slice. This Pi Day, they’re offering Cereal Killer Cheesecake (their signature cheesecake with fruity pebbles, topped with frosted flakes). Although it might not make the best breakfast, this pie is a beautiful snack.
The Pie Hole is located at 59 E Colorado Blvd. Call (626) 765-6315 or visit www.thepieholela.com for more details.
