Six Places to Celebrate National Pi Day in Denver

March 14 is known as National Pi Day (it's 3.14, after all) — the nerdiest, most delicious unofficial holiday of the year — and spots across the country are celebrating with specials. Some involve a stretch of the imagination, some a bigger challenge, but all should be delicious. Let the mouth-watering commence.

Humble Pie
Earlier this year, Humble Pie reopened at much bigger digs at 3550 East Colfax Avenue, where it started celebrating National Pie Day this weekend....and the party continues today. "Pie elves slingin' all night tryin' to make 'Infinite' amounts," the store promises. What are you waiting for? Doors open at 7 a.m., and the coffee is on. Find out more at the Humble Pie Facebook page.

Long I Pie
The Shoo-Fly pie coming out of the mobile Long I Pie oven rated as one of our 100 Favorite Dishes of 2014 — but none of the fan favorites disappoint. Long I Pie sponsored a pie-eating contest yesterday, but it's not resting today. As a special deal on Pi Day, it's teaming up with @pleasesendsugar to have pie slices delivered to your door from 6 to 10 p.m. Find the details on pleasesendsugar.com; for this special, Please Send Sugar is going outside its normal DU area and will deliver pie all over town.
