The Chicago Nerd Social Club celebrates Pi Day this weekend on March 13, which is one day before the official holiday (they're calling it Almost Pi(e) Day). Bakers can bring their home-baked pies for competition, trivia buffs can try competing for cash prizes, and math geeks can compete in recalling the most digits of the irrational number. For full details see Slowdown, or the event's page at the Chicago Nerds Website.
