Get the Pi app and try to memorize as many digits as you can. Make a game out of it: two players or more, whenever you guess the wrong digit, you have to do a dare. I'm not saying this has to turn into a drinking game, but I'm not not saying that either.
Search Pi for your numbers. Is your birthday in there? How about your phone number or social security number?
Read this book. The clever title has me thinking it's a page-turner.
Give someone a high-pi. Careful with your knuckles.
Ask your local pizzeria if they're celebrating Pi Day. If they are, you might get a discount like these guys are giving.
Rassle up a few comrades and strike up a hearty game of Pi Ball. Four-Square but with a circle and paddles. Delightful.
Do something random. Like this: Grab two friends, get in your car, drive in any direction for exactly 3.14 miles, stop, get out and take off three articles of clothing and dance on the side of the road for 3 minutes and 14 seconds, or for 3 hours and 14 minutes, or forever if you really want to get literal with it. Pi is often referred to as a chaotic number, so a little random chaos will be right in line with today's celebrations.
If you're lucky, you'll stop by a street performer dressed in a chicken costume...
Finally, serenade your sweetie tonight with this little gem.
