It's All about the Pie on 3.14 Day

Rumney Flats Blog, Revere, MA  Pi goes on forever, but Pi Day is only March 14th; make a pie at your apartment this year to celebrate. We've got recipes!

Some Star Trek fans may fondly recall how Mr. Spock stopped an evil entity that had taken over the Enterprise’s computer system, ordering it to “compute to the last digit the value of Pi.” We’re not going to go all technical on you in today’s Rumney Flats Blog, but we are focusing on March 14th this month which is, of course, Pi Day. To learn more about the originations of why we celebrate on 3.14, check out this Pi Day website. The important thing though is the pie, and we have a selection of both savory and sweet pie recipes to share. Try some of them this month! PS: If you don’t have time to bake, we’ve also included some local Revere, MA area venues where you can purchase pie.
