Albion Restaurant Celebrates Pi Day

Share Article

The Golden Gourd in Albion is celebrating Pi Day with free slices of pie.

Pi Day is a relatively new holiday. In 2009, the House of Representatives recognized March 14 as National Pi Day. At The Golden Gourd, a restaurant in Albion, they are celebrating the holiday by offering free slices of pie with the purchase of a sandwich.

Pi is a constant number, and the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi Day was started by physicist Larry Shaw of the San Francisco Exploratorium, as a way to make mathematics a fun and accessible experience for kids. The Exploratorium continues to celebrate the holiday, and there is an entire Pi Day website.

For The Golden Gourd, Pi Day is a funny holiday and an excuse to celebrate pie. They will be offering decadent, mouthwatering slices of chocolate Bavarian cream pie, lemon cheesecake pie, Dutch country apple pie, sweet potato pie, and buttermilk pie. Golden Gourd doesn’t usually have all these favorites available at once, so Pi Day is the best time to stop in.

The Golden Gourd will be open on Pi Day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The menu features several favorites, as well as enticing new twists on classic sandwich combinations like the Spicy Sriracha Roast Beef or the Ultimate Grilled Cheese. Golden Gourd also has a fantastic variety of gluten-free options. For more information or to check out their whole menu, please visit their website.
