While we all use math on an everyday basis, it usually doesn't go further than basic adding and subtracting, as well as figuring how much to tip on that $38 check -- for the record: it's about $7.50.
We rarely need to go back to high school geometry class to figure out the size of a circle (unless, you're some sort of engineer, of course).
Regardless, as rare as these needs may be, we should know that π (or, 3.14159...) is an integral part of the equation.
In case you didn't know, today is pi day, and D'Angelo Pizza ▪ Wine Bar ▪ Tapas is celebrating with deals on pies.
To honor the day of the mathematical constant (today is also 3/14), all D'Angelo locations are offering a special $10 pie for the day.
