Today is Pi Day, a national celebration of the mathematical constant!
Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. The number goes on and on, but is shortened to 3.14159. So today is super special, being 3/14/15. And if you celebrated at 9:26:53 a.m., it will be the first first 10 digits of pi.
To celebrate the day, some local businesses are giving some great Pi deals:
• Grand Traverse Pie Company is offering a free slice of ABC pie with any purchase. The pie is made from Michigan apples, blueberries and cherries. GT Pie is also hosting a competition. People who submit a 15 second video reciting the numbers of Pi will be entered int a contest to win a $150 gift card and other items. Awards will be given out for the most creative video, the most numbers and best video from a child under the age of 12.
• Sweetie-licious Bakery Cafe', picked as Michigan's Best Pie, is lowering prices on pie slice prices to $3.14. The sale will be available at all Sweetie-licious locations, including DeWitt, Grand Rapids Downtown Market and Gaslight Village in East Grand Rapids.
If you hear of any other local deals, please tell us about them!
