Oh yes, Pi. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, it now has various equivalent definitions and appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. That’s why March 14th (3.14) is Pi(e) Day.

While you could celebrate by doing math problems for fun, or rocking out to “Lateralus” by Tool (a song based off of the Fibonacci sequence) most people celebrate by eating as much pie as they can. And who can blame them? Pie is delicious! It may be fattening, but let’s be honest, it’s worth every last calorie.

If you’d like to partake in the consumption of everyone’s favorite snack, you might want to check out the Rustic Inn Café in Two Harbors and the Aroma Pie Shoppe in Whalan. They’re both rumored to have some of the best pie around.

You could also visit Braham Minnesota. It’s been deemed “Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota” for almost 30 years, where Park Cafe has served fresh pies since the 1920s. Now if you’ll excuse me, all this pie talk is making my stomach rumble. Time to pig out.
