Celebrate Pi Day with these pie and pizza deals in Shanghai

Maths never tasted so good...

Al's Baking Co
If you haven't heard of the annual maths-based holiday Pi Day, it's about time you did. Celebrating the famous mathematical constant pi (π) – perhaps most easily recognised by its first three digits 3.14 – the holiday's held on March 14 (or 3.14). Even if you repressed those memories of high school maths classes, there's plenty of reason to jump on the Pi Day bandwagon, as restaurants offer special deals on pies and pizzas throughout the day. Here's where to get your pie fix in Shanghai this Pi Day.

Al's Baking Co.

The all-American bakery's Xiangyang Lu location marks Pi Day with 25 percent off all whole eight inch pies, both instore and for preorder. Usually 198RMB, the pies will go for 149RMB, with classic sweet feelings including apple, berry crumb and ginger pear. To preorder, call the store or email kat@graciesconcepts.com.
