Devour these savory dishes to celebrate National Pi Day

And for a fraction of the price of a full pie, head to Tasty Burger’s Harvard Square location (40 John F. Kennedy St., Cambridge) today for $1 4-inch mini-pies, made by Worcester’s decades-spanning family-owned Table Talk Pies, available in apple, blueberry and chocolate eclair.

    Devour these savory dishes to celebrate National Pi Day
    Today is National Pi Day. Math nerds, rejoice. Food fans, fret not: The only thing you'll need to calculate is how many calories you're willing to gorge.In recent years, March 14 (or 3/14) has been increasingly recognized as a (mostly tongue-in-cheek) tribute to the first three digits of the mathematical constant pi, which represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

Come and marble your own paper! In this workshop, we will teach you how to create your own hand-marbled papers in a variety of colors from three different dye baths. We'll use these sheets to create a pamphlet journal, decorative pencil and a stunning stationery set. You'll even leave with extra sheets to use for other DIY projects!

The event is $30 per seat, but you'll receive 10% off if you purchase 2 or more seats!

To register, give us a call at (617) 264-2800, or follow this link:

February 2018 in Review, From Fried Chicken to Champagne Vending Machines

Gen Sou En (299 Harvard St., Brookline): At this beautifully designed Coolidge Corner space, there is matcha, Japanese pastries, soft serve, bento box-style lunches, and lots more.

Xiang Yu China Bistro (1223 Beacon St., Brookline): This Chinese restaurant replaced Takusan Sushi. It’s open already, but it’ll host a grand opening celebration in mid-March.

Anna’s Taqueria (800 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Finally, the local burrito chain has opened its long-awaited Prudential Center location, serving up its usual menu of tacos and more.

Apm Coffee (99 Kneeland St., Chinatown, Boston): Located in the One Greenway apartment building, this coffee shop serves Intelligentsia coffee and swooped in shortly after Beantowne Coffee closed its shop at this address.

Bootleg Special (400 Tremont St., South End, Boston): Put on a bib and gloves to eat a spicy seafood boil in this fun new South End addition.

Caffe Nero (1375 Boylston St., Fenway, Boston): This European cafe chain continues its Boston takeover with a Fenway location.

Craft Table & Bar (107 Porter St., East Boston): Located in the former Ecco space, this restaurant comes from a group that is opening several different restaurants around the Worcester area and beyond (including a Worcester location of Craft Table & Bar).

Exodus Bagels (3346 Washington St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): This farmers market staple has opened a permanent storefront in the former Canto 6 space. Exodus’ long-promised Roslindale space is still in the works; meanwhile, it serves as the company’s commissary.

My Diner (455 E 1st St.): After more than a decade on A Street, My Diner had to leave Southie due to development and opened a location in Melrose. Now, Melrose remains open, and My Diner has a second location back in Southie, this time on First Street.

When Pigs Fly (241 Elm St., Davis Square, Somerville): The Somerville outpost for this bread company moved to a larger space on the other side of the square, right by McKinnon’s.

Agoro’s Pizza Bar & Grill (356 Chestnut Hill Ave., Brighton, Boston): This Cleveland Circle pizzeria and bar was not a great fit for the...

Brew on the Grid (93 Windsor St., Cambridge): This was the second location of a Worcester-based coffee shop that has several more locations planned for the North Shore and Central Massachusetts. The group plans to put one of its other concepts, Stix Noodle Bar, in the Cambridge space.
