How to Celebrate Pi Day (March 14) in Raleigh

Pi Day picks around town.

Happy Pi Day! If you’re in the mood for 3.14 times the fun (!), peep our selects for how to celebrate the day locally. … Whether you’re a math enthusiast or a sweet/savory pie lover, one thing remains constant: You’re gonna wanna get a slice of the action.


Pie and cocktails? Name a better combo—we’ll wait. Opening its doors for the special occasion (they’re normally closed on Tuesdays!), Bittersweet will be serving sweet slices and slinging cocktails from 1 to 6pm. … In pie we crust, indeed! 

Pie Day Pi K

Life’s all about balance, so lace up your sneaks for this 3.14 kilometer (~1.95 mile) fun run at C.M. Herndon Park, followed by a freshly baked crostada by Durham-based James Beard Pastry Chef Award nominee Phoebe Lawless. And be sure to grab an “equation” shirt after you cross the finish line! 

Hayes Barton Cafe & Dessertery

Life is as easy as pie at one of Raleigh’s most renowned sup spots touting tons of pie ops—from Key lime and caramel apple to chocolate pecan pies. Yum!

Pi(e) Day at The Durham Hotel

It’s as simple as 3.141592… and it only costs $3.14 to grab a slice of pie from Durham baker Phoebe Lawless on the rooftop of The Durham Hotel—or a whole pie if you’re feelin’ frisky. Expect pie flavors like double chocolate chess; pear and almond crumb; buttermilk sugar; lavender chess; and apple with bacon and crispy cheddar crumb. Keep your eyes on the pies.

Vic’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria

Piece out! Grab a pizza pie from this local family-owned Italian joint touting specialty slices that can’t be topped… unless it’s with pepperoni, veggies or extra cheese, of course.
