Fed up with this “Hallmark holiday?” Do you consider the half-off chocolates the next day the real reason to celebrate? Commiserate with others at this teens-only event.  (Singles & couples welcome - no smooching!)  Board games, voodoo doll craft, pizza.

Pi Party

Saturday, March 14, 1-3 pm register button

“…the ratio of the circumference of circle to its diameter.” If you noticed that the date “03-14-15” is equal to pi, welcome to Pi Day!  This is the MOST EPIC Pi Day of our lives! March 14, 2015 or 03.14.15 will not happen again for 100 years!

Tell people YOU WERE THERE and stuffed your face with glorious, delicious pi-pie!  Teams of up to two will be competing against each other to eat an 8" pie, then write pi out to the 10th decimal place.

A second, more laid back contest will take place afterward:  who can write out memorized pi to the farthest decimal place?  PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED!
