Pretty much nothing in the world sounds more appealing than smacking someone in the face with a pie. Well the folks over at Peace Pi have a way for you to channel all your pastry-fueled aggression for a good cause this Saturday when the mathematically inspired Pi Day weekend hits. With six color-coded pies, you can choose where your money goes while plotting who gets a pie to the face at the grand opening of Walter Studios Creative Arts Center.
Although the pies are not toxic and biodegradable, you're not supposed to eat them, not that you'd really even want to when you're fully allowed to chuck them at people. Blue pies are for educational causes, green are for environmental, pink are for the arts, orange are for food nutrition, purple are for health and welfare, and yellow go to global causes. Event organizers say the buzz around the event is getting bigger every day and estimate that perhaps 1000 people could be participating in Saturday's event, although it's difficult to say for sure until the big day comes.
Phoenix Spokes People will be there to offer bike valet services, in case you don't want to get your car covered in pie when you head home. There will also be an indoor beer garden courtesy of Angels Trumpet Ale House and even a visit by Walter, the world's largest VW bus.
$10 admission gets you in with two peace pies and kids 10 and under can get in free. First pies will be thrown at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 15. For more information, visit the Peace Pi website.
