After 11 Years, Pam from 'The Office' Went Back to Chili's

11 years after being banned, Pam Beesly has made her way back to Chili's.

As fans of the U.S. version of The Office might remember, in season 2 a very drunk Pam Beesly was banned from Chili's after getting too drunk during Dunder Mifflin's annual Dundie Awards celebration.

You can watch the moment below. Post continues after video. 

Earlier this week, Jenna Fischer, who played Pam in the series, tweeted a photo of herself standing outside of a Chili's and asked her followers if she should try to go in.


Fans immediately responded in the best way: with quotes and videos from the show.

Eventually, even Chili's joined in on the fun.

After their initial tweet, Chili's took it even further.

Yes, that's right. The restaurant put out a press release lifting Pam Beesly's permanent ban from their restaurants.

The release reads:

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."

Finally, the long ban is over.

Now who's up for some baby back ribs?
