Room 11 is dishing out a variety of pies for Pi Day (including sweet and savory options like Chocolate Bourbon and Cheddar Chive Bacon), all made in their bakery, Paisley Fig. The cafe/bakery will be rotating their selection of pies by the slice throughout the day, while supplies last. But if you’re one of the first ten people in line who can recite the first 10 digits of Pi, you’ll earn a free slice.
Donate a Pizza With Veloce
Veloce is giving back on Pi Day by hosting a fundraising drive for DC Central Kitchen. Pay $3.14 for the Veloce pizza (regularly priced at $6): a 10-inch personal pizza made with marinara sauce and mozzarella on a white crust.

And of course, Whole Foods’ pies are free of hydrogenated fats, artificial flavors, and preservatives, so you can feel a little less guilty about eat a slice or two (or let’s be honest: five).
