Sauce Magazine – 10 food and drink specials to check out on 314 Day in St. Louis

March 14 is known as Pi Day around the world, but here in St. Louis we call it 314 Day as an homage to the city’s long-held area code. Naturally, it’s a great day for local businesses to offer specials and deals – several at the very low price of $3.14 – as a way to drum up business and celebrate the Lou. Here are a few we’re particularly excited to check out this Thursday.
