Almost Pi(e) Day 2014!


Almost Pi(e) Day

It’s that time of year! The Chicago Nerd Social Club is putting together our love of Pie with our love of Pi. Our annual Pi(e) Day event is here! Math makes me hungry, so in an event to celebrate everyone’s favorite transcendental number we couldn’t leave out pie the dessert, WE aren’t irrational! We are putting out the call for our nerds to show off their math and/or pie baking skills as we celebrate Almost Pi(e) Day.

Contests include:

3:00PM Open Event
4:00PM Trivia
4:30 Pie Tasting
5:00PM Pi off, recalling Pi to the most decimal digits.
