Who really needs an excuse to eat pie? But if you do, and you want to enjoy virtually every flavor of pie on the planet, you have 2 great opportunities coming right at ya: National Pie Day and National Pi Day.
What is Pie Day?
National Pie Day is celebrated on January 23rd. Bakeries and restaurants, everywhere (especially all the great eateries in and around New York City) will be breaking out their best pie creations (just like grandma used to make) for your dining pleasure.
What is Pi Day?
Due to the nature of the sound alike, the 2 events are often confused. But National Pi Day is actually a celebration of the mathematical constant “Pi,” which consists of the numbers 3.14159265359. Notice the first three digits? That’s why we celebrate it on March 14th. But, hey, any excuse to eat more pie is a great idea — just in case you didn’t get enough of those delicious treats on January 23rd.
Pi Day and Pie Day 2019, New York City Style
While one is for math lovers, and the other is for those who just love an incredible dessert, both celebrations offer pies and more pies. Trust us: they’ll be freshly made — everywhere you turn! There will be lemon pies, berry pies, banana cream pies, cheese pies, pecan pies, chocolate pies, and, of course, the all American apple pie.
Whether you like your apple pie with whipped cream, a slice of sharp cheese, topped with ice cream, or sprinkled with cinnamon crumbs, you will find plenty of delicious choices all around our great city.
