Seeing how the former is largely a subset of the latter, it's entirely possible they were both.

I really do think it's because Obama mentioned Pamelas.

He mentioned it before he came to Pittsburgh too! I've never heard of Pamelas. I'm definitely going to try those pancakes!

I think that's very likely to happen. They have six already. They can take all this publicity to the bank.

pamela's is excellent. i don't eat eggs, but their pancakes look just like my mom's pancakes, which are the gold standard, of course!

police are now saying that one person was responsible for the majority of the property destruction (see the general g20 thread). no word on whether that includes pamela's. but that means that now more than ever, it's not fair to extrapolate that kind of behavior to the protesters as a whole, especially the 4200-10000 who participated in the peaceful march yesterday (which predictably has gotten much less attention from local media and none from national media that i've seen).

I suppose that I gave the protesters too much credit. I assumed that they had an actual reason for targeting some of the places they decided to target.


Everyone should get to Pamela's right away. They have the best pancakes I've ever tasted. They only take cash though (unless they've installed debit/credit machines since the last time I've been there.)

I have to confess that I've lived in Pittsburgh for 9 years and I've never been to Pamela's.

It never made any sense to attribute the behavior of the anarchists (who seemed to number in the tens, not hundreds or thousands) to the protesters as a whole. On the other hand, I'm not sure yet that the handful of anarchists should get a pass on the property destruction. Indeed, while this one guy might have been swinging the hammer most of the time, in the accounts and pictures I have seen there were usually two people working together.

It had nothing to do with that, they were just smashing windows to do so.

I had breakfast at Pamela's in Oakland. Very good, but crowded. Never had the panckaes though (not much of a pancake fan, I guess.)

I think I might have been here even longer before going. The longtime breakfast fave I had been to before that was Deluca's (in the Strip). But yeah, Pamela's is great, any location. Always busy on a weekend tho.
