Grocery stores and restaurants celebrate Pi Day with deals on pie

Posted at 2:51 AM, Mar 14, 2019

Thursday is March 14, also known as National Pi Day, and you can score some deals on actual pies.

The annual celebration is in honor of the first three digits of the mathematical constant Pi, 3.14.

Whole Foods is marking the occasion with $3.14 off select bakery pies while supplies last.

There are Whole Foods locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.

Blaze Pizza will celebrate the day with $3.14 pizzas. The special is open to anyone with the Blaze Pizza app. The Pi Day reward will unlock Thursday morning and allow customers to order their pizza for the discounted price.

There are Blaze Pizza locations in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande, Santa Maria, Lompoc, and Santa Barbara. All Blaze locations on the Central Coast are participating in the deal.

In case you can’t remember what Pi means from your days in math class, it’s the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
