On October 3, 2003 India West reported that "six popular restaurants and nightclubs owned by a Pittsburgh, PA, chain have amended their 'no hats' dress code to allow turbans and other religious head-coverings." The Sikh Mediawatch and Resource Task Force has been collaborating with attorney Ravinder Singh Bhalla and the Anti-Defamation League of Cleveland, Ohio, to protest the way club staffers have been treating Sikh males attempting to enter bars with head coverings.
