Pi(e) Day

The winning pie, a Ginger Apple Cream Pie by Lauren H. (the roses are painstakingly rolled apple slices)

Thanks to all who made Pi(e) Day a raging success on 3.14!  I think everyone had a mellow time and the strong finish by Clinton D. to win the pie-eating contest left us feeling we had witnessed a veritable spectacle.  By my count, there were about 21 pies eaten by ~60 people.

Special thanks to:

  • Our pie-baking contestants: Claire H., Shannon H., Lauren H. (champ), Briana B., and Stephanie T.
  • Our pie-eating contestants: Jim, Jeremy R., Clinton D. (champ), and Marcus J.
  • Our crew: Chef Matt, Val, Andy.

Next year: We are already looking forward to next year, wherein we will hopefully have a Pi-digit-memorization-recitation contest to accompany the pie-eating and pie-baking.
