Vegan Pi Day Celebration

  • Mar 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Jackson Heights

Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.  But you knew that, right?

What better way to salute Pi is there than eating lots and lots of pie?  Sure, we could calculate the volume of a cylinder but isn't more fun to eat pie than do math?

VegOutter Noah will be hosting us in his Jackie Heights pad for a Vegan Pi Day Celebration. I've been to several parties hosted by Noah.  He's a terrific host and I've always had a great time!

More on Pi Day can be found here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/03/031314-pi-day-exploratorium-mathematics-pie-science/

Noah tells it like it's gonna be:

"Feast on sweet & savory pies, listen to pie songs, and play pie-themed games (no math required!).

WHAT TO BRING: Bring a vegan pie, topping, or beverage to share. Topping ideas include vegan vanilla ice cream (the kind at Trader Joe's is good!), Healthy Top (yes, that is a thing), or Soyatoo. If you need a recipe, I can direct you to some tried-and-true ones (hint: use a store-bought crust!), or consult Vegan Pie in the Sky. Whole Foods makes a vegan apple pie. Wholly Wholesome makes frozen pies, some of which are vegan. Feel free to use my oven for re-heating.

WHO: You & your friends (inviting others is encouraged, the more pie the merrier).

RSVP: Please note in the comments what you will be bringing! It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to have 10 apple pies, but let's go for pie diversity!

WHERE: My new apartment in Jackson Heights. 7 train to 82nd St. or E/F/M/R to Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Ave."

We'll message you the exact address 24 hrs before.

Accessibility:

Transit: The Roosevelt Avenue train station at 74th street/Broadway on Roosevelt Avenue is an express stop.  The E, F, R, M and 7 all stop there.  There is elevator access throughout the entire station.  This is also the bus terminal for the entire area.  The Q32, Q33 and Q34 buses all stop within one block of our host's apartment.  The 33 & 34 are located under the main canopy at the station. The 32 stops directly outside the terminal doors on Roosevelt Avenue.  Allow an additional 10-12 minutes if you're taking the bus.

Apartment:  There are two steps leading up to the front door of the building, a landing and then three steps. Both sets have railings. Then there is an elevator. Unfortunately there is no ramp; the service entrance to the basement has stairs. Within the apartment, the living room is sunken, with two steps leading down to it.  If you have further questions, please message Noah through Meetup.

    Noah & Brian, Thank you so much for posting these recipes. They're going right into my personal faves! These are complete winners. I had no idea who Leslie Durso is. Thanks for this.

      as crazy as it sounds, I made it again today for another potluck (music teachers) - a weekend of potlucks! (I still had all of the ingredients and realized I'd practically memorized the recipe)

    Here are the recipes for Tofu Pot Pie, Chocolate Pie, Chocolate Walnut Pie, Waldorf Pie, and Ida's Mac & Cheese! (If people want to email me other recipes I can add them to the file.) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9GByRavhF5VR2d2RXU4bDByX3M/edit?usp=sharing

    I thought when I RSVP'd that I'd have a functioning oven by this Friday, but that doesn't look like it's happening now. so i'm going to gracefully back out now, and rsvp back if the situation changes. (damn that missing maybe button)

    March 10, 2014

    • Noah

      Do feel free to come without a pie. You can bring a drink to share!

      March 10, 2014

    • Bimol

      Sorry I couldn't make it. But hey, there's never a bad time to make pi. New oven on Tuesday!

      March 15, 2014

  • Brian T.

    Such wonderful folk and ridiculous food. To be followed by a fasting day.

    Very sorry but I can't make it tonight! Was all excited about my pie... Have fun!

    March 14, 2014

    • Noah

      Bummed you couldn't come! We did have tofu chocolate pie in your absence though!

    Hoping to make it - tofu chocolate pie!

    1 · March 13, 2014

  • Brian T.

    I could do a savory Lentil and Mushroom Shepherd's Pie or something sweet pending the balance of the menu...(or both, if I have time)

    ps: I suggest we bring copies of our recipes to share in case one really likes something...

    March 9, 2014

    • Noah

      I too vote savory! I was going to make a Shepherd's Pie if no one else was, so I totally think you should do it!

      1 · March 10, 2014

    • Brian T.

      done!

      March 13, 2014

  • Brian T.

    can you send the address? thanks

    Hello Noah: I am not going to be in town this weekend. If I leave Sat morning instead of Fri night I will stop by. I reserved no to make sure there is room for others to reserve. If I make it I am thinking of grape stuffed (not stuffed) leaves in a pi shape and sweet. It is Iraqi dish and very popular in the gulf arabia. Abdullah

    I might be coming straight from work, so I will bring drinks and toppings if I am unable to make a pie in time. Thanks for hosting this fabulous event, Noah!

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • Sergio M.

    I think I'll make a vegan "chicken" pot pie. To balance savory v. sweet.

    Will update my menu contribution before the end of the day tomorrow.

  • Jim

    Ok, so far I'm committing to a vegetable quiche (whoopsy!, I mean pie (pi)).

    2 · February 26, 2014

  • Noah

    I'll be bringing tofu pot pie and chocolate walnut pie! So far, my non-VegOut pals have called sweet potato pie and chocolate pie.
