Pi Bar Menu Lacks Pi Puns

Here’s what a piece o’ π at Pi Bar looks like:

Yum.  Both Burrito Justice (image cred for the above!)  and Grub Street have good posts about the new pizza joint at 25th and Valencia.  Check ‘em out.

I took a look at the menu in anticipation, and was, quite frankly,  a bit disappointed with the lack of π references.  In fact, the only punny π mentions on an otherwise straightforward menu were the $3.14 slices and the “2 * Pi * “R”egular Special,” which translates to a slice and a beer.  That last one doesn’t quite make sense.  2πR = circumference, dudes.

I understand I’m being obnoxious (seriously, stop reading now), but I’d like to come up with some suggestions for Pi Bar to pony up on the π puns.  Here’s what I’ve got so far, let me know if you think of more:

  • The Archimeaties – the all-meat pi!
  • The Pi Are Square – the pi whose area is square!
  • The Greek Constant – the Greek pi!
  • The Infinite Sequence – create your own pi!
  • Square Root Special – slices for $1.77!

Or whatever, they could keep their menu classy.  No biggie.

Looking forward to trying it out!

    Funny, their website says, “Open 3pm to 12pm” — I can stumble in their for a 5am slice after a night of drinking, but I can’t get a piece for lunch? Time to do the math, Pi Bar.

    i say we picket them until their sense of humor improves.

    “put the pi back in pie” signs!

    (see, we can misspell protest signs just like the Republicans!)

    Or we could just assume π=3 like the bible says. Things are just so much easier that way. (And cheaper!)

    @double_bubble – I think you mean you can “stumble in *there*. Guess everyone’s prone to mistakes now and again, eh?
