Infinite Fun on Pi Day

Still scared of math? Well, no significant math skills are needed when you join Niles Pie Company for Pi Day. But just in case you're interested, here's a refresher: pi = 3.14159… More importantly, for the moment, is the fact that Pi Day is always on 3/14. This year, however, we have a High Pi Day, since it’s 3/14/15. Visit the Niles Pie shop in Union City or the new Niles Farmers' Market in Fremont on March 14 for pi-related fun including prizes for reciting pi to the furthest digit. Niles Pie Company also hosts a Jazz & Pi Dinner featuring live music plus savory pot pies, empanadas, Shaker Lemon Pie, Double Chocolate Pie, and more. Info: here.

Jazz & Pi Dinner
Saturday March 14, 6–8pm
