Fans of math, fans of science, and fans of pies rejoice when March 14th comes around.
It’s not because they’re getting ready to celebrate the Ides of March, that fated day from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar or Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s because they have their sights set on the big day itself. Pi Day.
Yes, that’s spelled correctly. It’s Pi as in the mathematical constant 3.14, which equates to the third month and the 14th day. Clever, yes?
At Jarosch Bakery, we think it is, and that’s why at our bakery in Schaumburg, we’re happy to make pies for everyone on Pi Day, from hard-core intellectuals to the most devoted fans of sweets and treats.
A full-service bakery will have plenty of delicious pies for you to order. Think about coconut cream or apple or blueberry or cherry or strawberry cream, and you will be watching the calendar waiting for Pi Day to get here.
You don’t have to know how to calculate the area of a circle using the equation A=πr2, but it does help if you appreciate the old joke that “pies aren’t squared, they’re round.” Either way, what better way to enjoy a whimsical day than to have a slice with a friend or two? You can even use the formula above to calculate the area of your pie if you’re ambitious, and you can resist its temptation for that long.
