Math lovers and food lovers might seem like strange bedfellows, but there’s at least one day that brings the two groups together.

National Pi Day celebrates the Greek letter that symbolizes the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and roughly equates to 3.14, hence Pi Day being observed on 3/14. It’s also become another day — aside from National Pie Day, which is celebrated in January — to indulge in a piece of pie.

Need another reason to celebrate? Today also happens to be celebrated genius Albert Einstein’s birthday, who’s clearly want you to have a piece of pie.

When it comes to things to celebrate, we dare say there are few things more deserving than a piece of pie. To honor the sweet (and sometimes savory) treat on its national day of recognition, we’ve compiled a list of links celebrating all things pie in Atlanta. Grab a fork and dig in.
