V + I = MO' PIE! MO’ PIE!

Bring a PIE to share - 6:28pm 3.14!



This image illustrates the heterographic nature of pi/pie, and the unique way 3.14 (pi) looks similar to the word 'PIE' when reversed. Pi delivers an infinite number, so let's try for infinite pie on Mo'Pie Tuesday!

Tuesday March 14th is Pi Day, celebrated by math enthusiasts everywhere. Here in Alaska, we like Pi because it's useful in (among other things) helping describe the area of a 48" diameter circle (like, say, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline!) But all this talking about Pi makes a person hungry... stirring up images of PIE!


Where else but a CIRCLE to celebrate the concept of Pi/Pie? An extensive aerial survey was conducted for a suitably impressive circle. Several grandiose circles in the city were considered and found wanting. We settled on a location just .15 miles from GoogleEarth's Anchorage Midpoint, on a bearing of 285 degrees true north – the circle on 40th Avenue, just a block and a half east of C Street. The time chosen of 6:28pm pays homage to 2 x pi, and gives you plenty of time to get to midtown with a pie of your choosing to share. What a great way to celebrate the first Tuesday after 'Spring Ahead' Daylight Savings Time Sunday – with an event full of Pie



The lower-case Greek letter Pi is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi = 3.1415926535… With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating.

Please join us for pie and socializing.

I will provide a pie and some of my favorite topping - Whipped Cream!.

Please bring a piece of your favorite flavor to share. Plates and napkins provided.

The festivities will start at 6.28 pm on 3.14.2017 and last for an hour, weather permitting. This event is held outdoors so dress appropriately.

Pi is the key to enjoying many of the finer desserts.

Pi determines the size of Pie, and how much pie each pie has. The circumference = 2πr and the area, or the amount you could eat, is πr2.
