If you're looking for a theme night...

Pi Day

Sing lots of rounds.

Will The Circle Be Unbroken?

Round and Round Goes The Wheel of Fortune

Wagon Wheel

Others?

There's the verse from the Wild West Show:

"And in the next cage we have the piebald horse.

The piebald horse! Fantastic! Incredible! What the f?*king hell's that?

Well, it's the only animal I know with 3.1416 testicles."

March 14 has been chosen as, in the US format of writing dates, it is 3/14. As "/" represents division, 3/14 is a fraction approximately equal to 0.214 which is not even close to Pi.

Better to celebrate Pi day on 22nd July which, in UK formatting, is 22/7 which approximates to 3.1429 and is closer to Pi than is 3.14

There are plenty of transcendentals to go around. For us in Europe - on the 2nd of July, at 18:28, get your instrument ready and tuned up, all together now...

The two that first come to my mind are:

The Incredible String Band's The Circle Is Unbroken

and Gene Clark's Full Circle

Jack, I may be being a bit dim, but I don't get what you mean by 2nd of July, at 18:28?

Could you explain please?

Bye-bye, Miss American Pi.
Traced you out to fifty figures, but I never knew why.
And the higher mathematics clown they just make me cry,

Euler's Constsant, labeled "e", is roughly equal to 2.71828,, which in European notation would be 2-7 18:28, and is a transcendental number.

I'd got as far as https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcendental_number but couldn't find an 1828.

The term "Euler's constant" is usually applied to Gamma, 0.5771... see the Wikipedia page for "Euler-Mascheroni constant" or Julian Havil's book "Gamma". (There are books about "e" too).
