National food holidays? We can take them or leave 'em, especially when there's one that's actually promising deals. Pi Day, celebrated on March 14, honors the mathematical constant of the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Even those who still struggle with math, can recognize there are some bargains on the table this Saturday.

Whether you like them sweet or savory, the pies up for grabs on Pi Day are worth checking out. 

Cafe Smitten (909 18th St.)/Smitten (1407 Buena Vista Road): With pies from The Pie Hole in L.A., the two restaurants have quite the selection, including the seasonal matcha tea pie, with creamy green tea matcha mousse and a layer of caramel in a graham cracker crust, topped with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle. For Pi Day, both locations will offer two pie holes for $3.14 (normally $4.50).

Coco's Restaurant & Bakery (7985 Rosedale Highway): Members of Coco’s E-Club members can enjoy a free slice of pie from 4 to 10 p.m. including seasonal pies like dark chocolate raspberry harvest and raspberry swirl.  From Dark Chocolate Raspberry Harvest to Caramel Apple Harvest, rewards members can indulge in a complimentary slice of Coco’s award-winning pie, each handmade and freshly baked.

Those who don't already have the Pie Life Rewards app can download it on Saturday for a chance to win free pizza for a year. One winner will be chosen per participating Pieology location. New and existing Pie Life Rewards members who use the app in stores on Saturday will also receive $3 off their next visit (Sunday through March 31).

Blaze Pizza (3900 California Ave., 3111 Ming Ave #460 and 310 Coffee Road.): For seven years, the pizza chain has offered this discount, allowing diners to build their own pie for just $3.14. The catch is that the reward must be redeemed using Blaze's mobile app. Because of the event's popularity and concerns about COVID-19 and the safety of large gatherings, the chain is offering the deal to all app users to be redeemed anytime between Monday and Dec. 31.
