Chili’s Lifts Ban on Pam Beesly Halpert

Fans of The Office freaked out yesterday when Pam Beesly Halpert tweeted this:

If you haven’t watched the entire series of the faux reality show The Office at least three times like I have, this news probably means nothing to you. But for those who are avid Dunderheads, this tweet is a big deal.

You see, Pam Beesly was banned from Chili’s eleven years ago for drinking too much at the annual Dunder Mifflin awards ceremony, The Dundies. They were forced to move The Dundies to Louie Volpe’s, which didn’t have quite the same je ne sais quoi as Chili’s.

This being 2017 and Twitter being the most magical place on the internet, Chili’s responded to Beesly’s apprehensiveness.

And then they did what many thought would never happen:

Effective immediately, Chili’s® Grill & Bar has removed the longstanding ban on a Scranton, Pennsylvania woman who allegedly caused a disturbance during a company awards party held at a Chili’s near the Pennsylvania town of Scranton.

The woman, Pam Beesly Halpert, received a prestigious award for having the whitest sneakers in the company.

After thanking her shoes and coworkers, the woman declared, “I feel God in this Chili’s tonight.”

“After reviewing the good conduct of Pam, I have decided to lift the now 11-year ban,” said Kelli Valade, President of Chili’s. “Pam is an inspiration to many and we welcome her with open arms.”

THE HALPERT FAMILY CAN ENJOY BABY BACK RIBS AGAIN! I know Cece and Philip will be excited to hear the story of how mom and dad shared their first kiss in a Chili’s and how it’s a magical place where love happens.
