Everywhere You Can Get Cheap & Free Pie Today for National Pie Day

It's not rude -- even on National Pie Day -- to suggest that pie is the Ed McMahon to cake's Johnny Carson. If dessert was '90s Must-See TV Thursday, cake would be Friends and pie would be, I don't know, Union Square?

Nonetheless, you're going to have dessert and you weren't going to just shut the TV off between Friends and Seinfeld. January 23 is National Pie Day and it's a day where you can give pie a little extra respect, maybe not make cheap jokes about it just because you'd rather have a slice of cake. Instead, you can appreciate pie for what it is and get out there to take advantage of the cheap and free slices of pie that are being offered at restaurants across the country.

Here's our running list of the absolute best deals you'll find on National Pie Day.
