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!

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.
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.
