March 14th is a very special day that is beloved by mathematicians the world over (and for that matter fans of baked goods). March 14, or as the math whizzes like to see it as 3.14, is known as Pi day when the abbreviated number approximates the mathematical constant Pi.
In celebration of Pi day, the Carnegie Science Center is partnering with Rivers Casino in a special event geared just for adults. On March 14, 2014 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. adult Science Center guests are invited to 21+Pi. This no kids-night features science and math themed fun filled activities and demonstrations as well as four floors of exhibits geared just for adults.
Among the various things to do, visitors can test their math skills in the Works Theater as game dealers from Rivers Casino will be on hand to demonstrate various games of chance using training cards and chips. Participants will be taught the science of their favorite games such as craps, blackjack, roulette, and poker. Rob Guthrie (the casino’s director of table games) will give presentations on the history and science of the various games.
For those with a sweet tooth, Rivers Casino pastry chef Sarah Hernandez will be demonstrating her skill by making and sharing a perfect pie. Live music will also be provided by local band, Anello. There will also be a cash bar available for drinks as well as snacks for purchase.
The cost of the event is just $10 with advance registration or $15 the day of the event. Guests 21 and older can spin the Rivers Casino wheel, located in the main lobby, to receive a coupon for $15 Free Slot Play or $20 Match Play, and possibly win other fun Rivers items.
21+ Nights are sponsored by Trib Total Media, and Bob and Q92 Radio.
