How about a slice of pie for National Pi Day?

It's March 14 -- National Pi Day, a day to celebrate the number that is beloved by math geeks and wizards the world over: 3.14.

For those of you who, like me, doodled during math class, here's a refresher: Pi represents the relationship between a circle's diameter (its width) and its circumference (the distance around the circle). And I know this because that's what I read over at PiDay.org, the website dedicated to this numerical phenomenon.

I also know this: You can celebrate National Pi Day with a slice of pie. How about this beauty from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen: Boysenberry-Strawberry glazed Pi...er, I mean Pie.

If you know any bakeries or restaurants celebrating with great deals on pies or desserts, let us know in the comments section below.

We had Pi Festival in high school, hosted by one of our math teachers, that had all kinds of takes on "pi," including a pie-eating contest. This takes me back.
