Pi Day is an annual holiday falling on March 14th that, as far as we understand, has something to do with math? Whatever. The real meaning, however, is that "pi" sounds like "pie," and therefore in our eyes, March 14th is forever known as the day to stuff your face with dessert for breakfast.

This year's Pi Day happens to fall on a Saturday, so in theory, you could spend your entire day on a tour of NYC's best baked goods deals in honor of the holiday—which we've handily mapped out for you, starting with a free cookie with every pie sold, and ending with a double stacked (!) pie at Crown Heights's Butter & Scotch.
