Hap-pie Pi(e) Day everyone!!!
If you don't yet know about Pi Day, today's date (in the American format at least) is 3.14.15 - and this article was posted at 9:26 to boot - just to celebrate the mathematical excuse to eat and rate pie that is Pi Day! Yep, right now is 3.1415926...
500 pies rated on Pierate we're no stranger to using any old excuse to eat and rate pie, especially with it having just recently been British Pie Week from Monday 2nd March 2015! And we're delighted to announce that between two Pierateers (RAS and SJL) we managed to smash the previous best of 55 pies consumed by eating 71 pies between us!
