Welcome to Fun with Calendaring. May 4 is now widely known as May the Fourth, a lispy play on "May the Force be with you." March 10 recently evolved into the Nintendo-centric Mario Day, because "Mar10."
And let's not forget the best day in the whole wide world: March 14, otherwise known as Pi Day (because of the eponymous mathematical formula that begins with 3.14). What's so great about that? All you have to do is say it out loud and it becomes "Pie Day."
Hence an abundance of deals and promotions centered around pizzas and baked goods. Below I've rounded up some of my favorites, though this list is by no means complete. There may be local stores and restaurants offering discounts and giveaways as well, so check in with your local pizza joints, bakeries and the like.
Don't want to venture out? Delivery service Postmates is offering free delivery on your next order between now and March 17. Visit the Pi Week collection in the app and use code piweek at checkout.
