Pi Day Specials 2018 π: Chicago

It's PI Day again (3.14 is a close approximation of the mathematical symbol π, for those of you who are long removed from 7th-grade mathematics.)  It's become a bit of a commercial celebration for Pizza makers, and Dessert makers, and science nuts, all celebrating the silly coincidence of the Greek letter pi and the English word pie.

That silliness is your gain. Here's some free or discounted stuff you can get in the Chicago area tomorrow for Pi day.

If you want a fuller explanation of π, peruse last year's PI Day post, where I explain how irrational numbers work.

Please check with the location before going there.  I got this info off the Internet, and that is of course, super reliable, but you never know.
