On Thursday, Walmart's breakfast meeting with Brooklyn leaders at the Lindenwood Diner was relocated last minute after over 100 uninvited protesters RSVP'd to it. The meeting was moved to a private office building to "avoid a spectacle," but spokesman Steve Restivo claims it was also out of consideration for the diner. "Out of respect to the proprietor [of the Lindenwood Diner], who has to serve a very busy lunch crowd, we moved." [NYDN]
