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.
