Everywhere else, today is Π day, but as the wise pelican will tell ya, here in the Lou it is also-known-as 314 day, for our local area code. Like, for you Eminem fans, yesterday was 313 day and the Ides of March is tomorrow. Old Julius still has a lock on that day, so beware.
Pi, a local pizzeria has a birthday special today and we have a birthday girl to fête. So, as the say, let’s get saucy. Pi the restaurant, not the irrational number, first came to fame in ’08, when Obama came to town. I attended his truly Yuge rally down under the Arch (800K). They sent out to Pi for some pie and Barack liked it so much that later he had it catered at his inaugural ball. Pi is known for its Chicago style pizza, so you can only imagine the wail that came from up north in the 312.
Our two born and bred 314 boys are now residing on the New England coast. One is in Boston and the other is in Maine. This month they have gone a long way in catching up on the lack of snow that they grew up with around here. They have now weathered three nor’easters. Dave in Boston, got a couple of feet. While, Dan downeast got less. Neither of them went to work, although Dan was able to work from “home”. Home being in this case the rented cottage for the artists in residence that are working on the film, “Blow the Man Down”. Pictured below are the stairs leading down to the boat dock. I swiped this photo off of Dan’s Instagram feed. Thank you, Dan!
