National Pi Day

S'mores Pie Union Kitchen & Tap Gaslamp
S’mores Pie Union Kitchen & Tap Gaslamp

March 14th is National Pi Day, and if there’s ever been a day to be completely irrational, it’s on a day dedicated to everyone’s favorite irrational and infinitely long number. How many digits can you memorize? The bar is pretty high, with the record being 100,000 digits memorized by Akira Haraguchi in 2006. If you can’t squeeze in the time to memorize pi, the least you can do on March 14th is dig into one of these unbeatable pies around San Diego – it’s the least you can do for a number that just won’t quit!

Bask in the energetic allure and bustling stretch of the Gaslamp District with a trip to Union Kitchen & Tap this National Pi Day, and snag a seat on their expansive, pet-friendly patio. Be sure to delight in their popular Pesto Chicken Flatbread, topped with smoked chicken basil pesto, oven-roasted tomato, cherrywood smoked bacon, mozzarella and shaved parmesan, before diving into a plate of S’mores Pie. Decadently crafted from Mexican chocolate mousse, fluff, cinnamon chocolate sauce and a graham cracker crust, this Pi Day indulgence is a must-try for pie-lovers.

If pizza is more your speed, there’s no shame in paying tribute to pi with one ofWoodstock’s Pizza’s savory pizza pies, such as Monty’s Revenge, piled high with pepperoni, sausage, freshly sliced bell peppers, onions and mushrooms, or sweeten the deal with Cinnabread, a warm dessert pie smothered in brown sugar, cinnamon and icing. Feel free to load up with strawberries, apples, blueberries, bacon or caramelized pecans – maybe all? Hey, the possibilities are infinite on this one-of-a-kind day! Pair this with a frothy brew and take advantage of their Pi Day special, including $3.14 pints of beer available all day when you use the code PIDAY.

Make your way to the coast this National Pi Day, and head up to Pacific Beach AleHouse’s Sky Bar, where boundless ocean views are their specialty. Gaze over the scintillating Pacific as you sink your fork into warm Lemon Blueberry Pie, prepared with lemon curd, fresh blueberries and whipped cream, all cradled by a sweet pie shell. Pair this with one of the location’s new house brews, including their SunSetter Raspberry Berliner Weisse, characterized by tart and dry raspberry notes, backed by a light cracker backbone from German Pilsner malt – an idyllic accompaniment to your Pi Day feast.
