You might think March 14 is just another day - but to math nerds, it's got major significance. Taken numerically, the date (3/14) represents the first few digits of pi, the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle. To celebrate Pi Day, several area eateries known for their circular food are offering some pretty sweet specials. Look who's a nerd now, huh?
Bleeding Heart Bakery
In addition to its regular lineup of organic offerings, this Roscoe Village bakery will have pie cupcakes and "pi" cookies on Sunday.
The Lincoln Square cafe will offer special deals on apple, turtle and cherry streusel pies from 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
John's Place Roscoe Village
The comfort food spot will add a special Chicken Pot Pi to its dinner menu on Sunday (it's open 5-9 p.m.).
No real specials at this Lincoln Park bakery, but Molly's classic cupcakes will be decorated (with the pi symbol, we imagine) for the occasion.
