Pi In The Sky

August 6, 2009

I see the signs. The pi is near!

So the large pizzas at Pi Bar are supposed to be 22″ wide and have 7 slices – 22÷7, get it?? (Zagat via Grubstreet.)

But how do you cut a pie into seven slices? Very carefully, I suppose:

7 slices

Or is this one of those math puzzles? “Cut into seven slices using as few cuts as possible…”

Or are they taking an asynchronous cut from Pepe’s in New Haven?

When pizza parlors started popping up all over the country, Pepe’s refused to conform to the perfect triangular slice and, to this day, slice up some pretty random freestyle shapes. Occasionally, you’ll get a triangle, but it’s definitely an accident

asynchronous clam pie

(Oh, man, clam pie.  I miss clam pie in a bad way.)

    Wow– it’s been a long time since I lived in New Haven, but I really miss Pepe’s white clam pizza!

    Pepe’s clam pie is what I want coming west through the burrito tunnel.
