Almost Pi(e) Day

Almost_Pie

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.

This years event is on the day (Sunday, 3/13) before 3/14, so we do not conflict with our next bookclub meeting.

Contests include:
Pi Off – Nerds recalling pi to most decimal digits – 6:00pm
Constant Pie – Best nerd baked pie contest – 6:45pm-7:15pm
Pi Trivia – 5 rounds of nerdy trivia for a $100 cash prize – 8:00pm

Prizes:
Gift Certificates and prizes from ThinkGeek

Interested in bringing a pie?
Each pie will have 1 slice saved to be tasted by our Constant Pie judges and the rest will be shared by our nerds.  If you are interested in baking a pie for our event please make sure you select the correct ticket.  Contact rachel@chicagonerds.com if you have any questions.
