March 4, 2015 - Pi Day is the unofficial holiday held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, the month/day date format as 3/14; since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits of pi. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein so the two events are sometimes celebrated together. This year (2015) is even more significant as 15 is the very next consistent after 3.14
There are a variety of ways of celebrating Pi Day and most of them include eating pie and discussing the relevance of pi. Pi Day is often celebrated with pies, given that pi and pie are homophones. The first Pi Day celebration was held at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988, with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies.
Not to be left out and appropriately so, United Cigar is releasing 3,141 Pi Cigars to be sold on 3/14/15 via United Cigar Group, retailers.
“The circumference of a cigar is pi and we should not be left out on this one” says David Garofalo of United Cigar, “as the next time this will happen to this level is in 100 years from now and I don’t expect to be around for that one... so it’s now or never”.
The cigars were manufactured at the Leyendas Cubanas cigar factory in the Dominican Republic in 2014 and have been resting for a full year. They feature a Ecuador Connecticut wrapper over Sumatra binder with fillers from Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The suggested retail price before local taxes is $10 per cigar.
