Buzz Lightyear may be fond of saying, “To infinity and beyond!” — but he’s got nothing on π. The number π is the mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and approximately equal to 3.14159, which goes to infinity and beyond. We take the first three digits, 3.14, and read them as a date: Pi Day  March 14th. The designation lends itself so readily to puns, so today the Tower at OPOP Apartments Blog is getting in on the fun by sharing three ways members of our St. Louis, MO apartment community can join in celebrating Pi Day.

Eat Pie

We have come up with several ways to eat pie, from pizza pie for dinner to pie for dessert. Enjoy!

Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Spinach Pizza

This is another fun way to spruce up your typical pizza and channel your inner cook for a delicious, restaurant-quality pizza pie. You’ll feel like a gourmet cook as you lay out the spinach and sprinkle on your bacon bits. Then cook, let it cool, and enjoy your night of fine dining!

Peach Pie with a lattice top from Taste of Home is sure to please everyone at your table. With this easy-to-follow recipe, the pie will be on the table in no time.

Coconut Cream Pie with a recipe from the Pillsbury kitchen is a must have for Pi Day. With a toasted coconut topping, this pie speaks creamy and crunchy. Mmm tasty!

Memorize Pi

Pi memorization challenges are common. The goal is to memorize pi out to as many decimals as possible. The record is currently held by Akira Haraguchi, who claims the world record at 100,000 digits. Hold your own contest with friends and family, and celebrate the winner by presenting a pie as the prize!

Share a Pi-Day Joke

Here are some one-liners to get you started:

The worst thing about getting hit in the face with pi is that it never ends.

Never talk to pi. He’ll go on forever.

I just saw the movie American Pi. I gave it a rating of 3.14.
