Pi Day 

Saturday March 18th 9am-6pm
Green Line Apothocary in Wakefield
Pi Day is an annual celebration of mathematics. But, you don’t need a calculator to get a great deal at Green Line Apothecary this March 14th. We’re celebrating “Pi Day – à la mode” – your choice of a slice of homemade, all-natural pie topped with a scoop of our organic ice cream – all for just $3.14!
Create delicious combos like Classic Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream, Tart Cherry Pie with Chocolate Ice Cream or our limited-edition Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream atop Blueberry Pie — the possibilities are scrumptious.
The number Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and continues infinitely. Our “Pi Day – à la mode” celebration begins at 9am on March 14th and lasts until the pie runs out.
Enjoy a special Pi Day treat this March 14th at Green Line Apothecary – Pharmacy & Soda Fountain – 203 Main Street in Wakefield RI.
