Because it’s 2015 (if you’re into numbers), this could be the most special Pi Day you will ever live through. On Saturday at exactly 9:26.53 (both in the morning and at night), be sure you’re celebrating in some way. Not exactly sure what to do? We at the Clog have your back with these ideas.
- Eat some form of pie for every meal: We aren’t nutritional science majors, but we’re pretty sure you can have a nutritious day eating various types of pie. Pizza has vegetables … sometimes. Apple pie has fruit. Want protein? Eat some shepherd’s pie.
- Free admission to the Exploratorium: There are both pi- and pie-themed activities throughout the day, including lectures, film screenings and actual pie!
- Make your own pie: If you’re feeling creative, try to bake one of the best pies of all time. Vegan? Don’t worry — you can still celebrate by following some of these recipe ideas.
- “Ask a Scientist” Pi Day Puzzle Party: Get your friends together and form a team to show off how smart you are. Maybe there will even be people from Stanford there whom you can beat!
- Go for a run: To compensate for all the pie you’ll eat, you should probably exercise — and, to keep in the spirit of the holiday, plan the route of your run to be a perfect circle.
