Here's to hoping that there'll be a bit less snow in mid-March (hoping, but not counting on. As has been the unfortunate norm for Meetup this rotten winter, the event is subject to cancellation due to weather/lack of interest)--
Come on out for The Carnegie Science Center's 21+ Night "Pi Day" March 14th (get it? 3.14? Pi? Har har!)
From the CSC website:
"Put your math skills to the test in our Works Theater where professional casino dealers will be on hand to teach you how to play Craps, Blackjack, Roulette, and Poker using training cards and chips.
Watch a delicious demonstration in our Kitchen Theater where the Rivers Casino pastry chef will make (and you can sample) a perfect pie! Buy a drink from the bar, enjoy live music by local band Anello, and check out other fun math-related activities on our four floors of exhibits.
It's easy as Pi to have a great time at the Science Center!"
I went last year and it was a fun time. The pastry chef was a nice presentation and the practice casino games were fun. Also, the casino has to replace their cards and dice with new ones several times a day for all of their table games and they've got to get rid of them somehow-- so they gave them away at the event last year. Admission is $10 in advance and $15 at the door but you'll get a coupon for $15 in free slot play at the River's Casino, so the event is free. Kind of.
And did I mention there will be pie?
UPDATE: Let's plan on meeting by the gift shop by the entrance at 6:15. I unfortunately don't have a smartphone so I can't check the meetup website (probably a moot point given the DDoS attacks meetup has been undergoing) but if you're late you'll probably find me/us milling about the science center.
