Welcome to Pi Day, one of the most nonsensical "food holidays" on the calendar. And perhaps one of the best.

Pi, often represented by the Greek letter π, represents a mathematical constant, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The number goes on infinitely, but it's most often remembered by its first three digits 3.14, and that's why we celebrate Pi Day on March 14 (03/14). And then we make a whole other leap by tying the number to pie and eating a bunch of pizza and pie. Popular chains -- from Cici's to White Castle -- are even celebrating with special Pi Day deals. 

But who is going to complain about cheap pizza with extra dessert? Here are all the places offering free and cheap food deals in honor of Pi Day. Just don't ask anyone to explain Pi Day; they'll just go on forever.
