It’s Pi Day tomorrow!! How ya going to celebrate?

annamaeWant to celebrate Pi Day tomorrow? We suggest stuffing your face with some fab bake goods at your local bakery. We found Anna Mae’s Restaurant and Bakery on the Shop Small Biz Directory. All of their delicious baked goods are HOMEMADE daily. They use fresh or frozen raw fruits to make all of their pie fillings – nothing from a can! Everything is made from scratch. Mmmmm good!

Pi Day will be here in 2 days!!

What does Pi Day mean to you? If it brings to mind visions of delicious, mouthwatering treats, perhaps a visit to the Winnipeg’s Panaderia & Pasteleria Lakomka Bakery featured on the Shop Small Biz directory is where you should head. They have baked and culinary treasures that are simply delightful and mouth melting.




Or… if you see it as an opportunity to brush up on your math skills, perhaps you would be interested in visiting Oxford Learning in Courtice, Ontario.

Pi or Pie. The choice is yours.
