How much of Parques Reunidos is actually based in Pittsburgh?

None, but most of Palace is. They rented out space in the Waterfront in the office building near Eat n Park -- I believe they have a sign out front now. All of the decision makers are in Pittsburgh, though it's possible that some IT or other support staff are still out of California.

If I worked near Eat n Park I’d be there every day and I’d weigh 300 pounds.

I haven't lived near an Eat N Park for 14 years and I still have dreams about the grilled stickies.

On your birthday you get free stickies with a scoop of ice cream.
I have to go to St. Clairsville or Akron for Eat n Park.

The last time I drove down Howe Ave near the Chapel Hill area that Eat N Park had closed.

Nostalgia got yinz good.

Gawd, I haven't been to an Eat n Park in almost five years now, last time I was in the Mon Valley. There is nothing really like it SoCal....

Every Friday night in Altoona, PA, my twenty-something year old friends and I would meet at Eat-n-Park after the mall closed. Sometimes there were fifty of us, or more. The wait staff hated us, because some in our group didn't tip, and the cheap kids would sit there all night and dink hot tea and nothing else. I always overtipped to make up for it.

Saturday nights, after my band played an all-age concert, we'd all meet at Denny's, and it was usually even more of us.

Wait, what is this topic about again?
