Grab a slice & figured out the math equations later.
National Pi Day is meant to be an annual celebration of mathematical fun and equations, but that doesn’t mean local businesses can’t create their own spin on the holiday.
Besides, a slice of pie is a great way to honor the day.
Whether it’s a baked pie that’s crumbling right before you or a gooey slice of cheesy pizza that’s come straight out of the oven, the following spots in Tucson have you covered.
