The roundest roundup: Dining deals and events for Pi Day 2020

Your Pie and other metro Atlanta restaurants have some big deals planned for Pi Day 2020. COURTESY OF YOUR PIE

Without pi, the near-magical ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, we wouldn’t really understand the concept of roundness. Pi is integral to a wide range of mathematical formulae that describe the natural world, from Einstein’s Theory of Relativity to Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion to basic Euclidean geometry. That’s why pi is celebrated each year on March 14, the date that corresponds with pi’s simplest value, 3.14. Though it’s meant to be a day of recognition for the mathematical constant, Pi Day has become a major food holiday for restaurants serving pizza and pies. Read on for eight of metro Atlanta’s best Pi Day deals for 2020.

This deal is brief, but it’s worth scheduling around - Brezza Cucina, the upscale Italian restaurant in Ponce City Market, will sell Margherita pizzas at a special price of $3.14 from 3-4 p.m. this Pi Day, Saturday, March 14. Normally $15, this is a major discount on a meticulously-crafted gourmet pizza. Get this deal while it’s hot, because it will only last one hour.

Brezza Cucina, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE, Atlanta. 404-724-9700, brezzacucina.com

The Tucker location of build-your-own pizza restaurant Your Pie has a similar deal, but there are a few extra steps. This Saturday, the restaurant is offering its 10-inch signature pizzas for $3.14 to loyalty program members who claim the deal through the Your Pie Rewards App. Get the deal by downloading the app at the Your Pie website ahead of time to claim the deal, then show your cashier the app at checkout. At least that’s simpler than solving equations with pi in them.

Your Pie, 3499 Chamblee Tucker Rd., Atlanta. 470-273-5984, yourpie.com/stores/tucker.  

Why get one pizza when you can get three pies? They’re hand pies, but still - the math on this is solid. Bojangles will offer three sweet potato pies for $3.14 all day this Saturday at all of the restaurant chain’s locations. That low price plus a freshly-baked sweet potato hand pie brushed in cinnamon butter adds up to an excellent deal.

If that's not sweet enough, support a local pie maker and indulge your competitive side with the Pie-lympics at Woodstock's Pie Bar. Inspired by this year's Summer Olympics, Pie Bar will have a variety of non-sanctioned games like mega Jenga and cornhole, plus plenty of pie for sale either whole or by the slice. The event is planned for the sweet shop's Woodstock location from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m., and there's a virtual guarantee that more pie will be consumed than at the actual Summer Olympic Games.

Breaking news: there's such a thing as healthy pies. This Saturday, local healthy breakfast company Happy Camper will host a Pi Day Pop Up at the Inman Park newcomer Field Day. On a mission to provide healthy convenience food, Happy Camper will be toasting gluten-free and vegetarian hand pies at the restaurant, as well as selling East Pole coffee from which 5% of the proceeds will be donated to the disaster relief effort in the wake of the Nashville tornadoes.

Two words: Glitter. Pizza. At Ammazza’s two locations, the pizza restaurant will be selling their famous glitter pizza for just $3.14 all day. Glitter pizza is exactly what it sounds like: a kid-sized (but available to anyone) cheese pizza sprinkled with edible glitter. Each restaurant will also offer a beer deal for $3.14 - Dach’s Lager at the Edgewood location and Peroni at the Decatur location.

Ammazza. Two locations: 591 Edgewood Ave. SE, Atlanta, 404-835-2298; 314 E. Howard Ave., Decatur, 404-963-7997. Ammazza.com

For a deal on a bit larger scale, Blue Moon Pizza is doing the math differently with three 18” two-topping pizzas for $14. This deal is available for pick-up and delivery only, but the restaurant has in-house specials as well: Blue Moon draft beers are just $3.14, and you get take home the glass when you’re done. Dining out or ordering in, Blue Moon will make sure you celebrate Pi Day right.

On a sweet note, one pie place will give you the chance to celebrate Pi Day all year long. Southern Baked Pie Company is selling pie slices and hand pies for $3.14 at all four of its metro Atlanta locations this Saturday, and each location will also offer guests a chance to win a 12 month Pie of the Month Club membership for free. Who wouldn't want to celebrate Pi Day 12 times a year?
