→In honor of National Pi Day, we’ve decided to give you the 411 on the local 314. And, while we could talk math, we hope you won’t mind that we’re adding an “e” to Pi. Turns out we’re not the only ones with crisp, golden crusts and creamy, flavor-bursting fillings on our minds; to celebrate National Pi Day, Magpie, the hip new pie shop at 16th and South is treating customers to Signature Butterscotch Bourbon Pie slices for—you guessed it—$3.14. And, since one slice is never enough, tomorrow is a good excuse to try their other twists on classic pies, such as the Buttery Caramel Apple or Lemon Curd. Even restaurants want a piece of the Pi pie; Supper Restaurant is offering an all-pie menu, which includes items such as a stout-braised short rib and mushroom pie with horseradish cream and a Mississippi mud pie with caramel swirl ice cream. Like whoopie pies? Head to the Reading Terminal Market, where you might just want to make love to the bananas foster and lavender honey variations at Flying Monkey. Or stop by Beiler’s (this Yelp review should convince you: “While I’m not quite ready to join an Amish community, I am a full-fledged worshipper at the house of Whoopie”). Home bakers, there’s no time like the present to get that dough into the fridge so it can chill. If you’ve still not found the perfect crust recipe, Ina Garten can help. Or, if you’re looking for some insPIration, might we suggest testing out this bourbon-orange pecan or this coffee toffee pie recipe? (Tell us how they turn out!) No chance you’re baking your own OR making a trip to town? Heck, go the simple route: Tastykake pies at Wawa. The bottom line, is that you can have your pi and eat it too. —@kimettinger
