1980: "Pamela’s diner"
If you ask a Pittsburgher where to find best pancakes in the city, the answer most likely would be, “At Pamela’s.”
It’s a signature breakfast diner of the ‘Burgh, which would, for sure, impress any pancake connoisseur with its buttery crepe-thin flapjacks… a mountain of whip creme on top and its genuine Pittsburgh diner feel. Ask Barack Obama. He was there in 2008, on a campaign visit — just goes to show you: it’s not some sort of a dinky place.
First Lady Michelle Obama cleaned up her plate at Pamela’s in 2009, while Obama, already the president, was “resentful he didn’t get to Pamela’s.” But people understood, he must have gotten too busy solving world’s economic problems with other world leaders during the G-20 Summit happening in Pittsburgh at the time (If you remember, there were plenty of those… economic problems that is)Owners of Pamela’s are not shy about their accomplishment: “Since 1980 we’ve been serving the best breakfast in Pittsburgh,” they announce on their website. Translation: Pamela’s. Is. The. Best. (Sorry, Weight Watchers).
Not just because of the best breakfast though. Pamela’s diner has been on the Pittsburgh market for more than 30 years, which means that it was part of the ‘Burgh when it was not so cool. To top it off, Pamela’s, although it’s now considered a chain diner, is locally owned. AND the owners are two successful women, who came up with a concept of a quintessential Pittsburgh breakfast place in 1979. The official name of Pamela’s is Pamela’s P&G Diner, or, P&G’s Pamela’s Diner where “P&G” stands for first-name initials of the owners, Pam Cohen, the mastermind behind the kitchen, and Gail Klingensmith, the entrepreneurial spirit behind the venture.
The first Pamela’s opened in Squirrel Hill. Business was doing well. Today there are six Pamela’s in the Pittsburgh area: in Shadyside, Oakland, Millvale, Mt. Lebanon, the Strip District and the flagship location.
The Wall Street Journal recently listed visiting Pamela’s as one of the “things to do” in Pittsburgh. Do it.

I’m pretty sure this is some piece of spaceship that fell off, but I also believe in magic so fuck it.
You know whats fucking scary? The fact that I could literally change my life at any moment. I could stop talking to everyone that makes me unhappy. I could kiss whoever i want. I could shave my head or get on a plane or take my own life. Nothing is stopping me. The entire world is in my hands, and I have no idea what to do with it.
