His name is Jack Pittorino. Better known as Yankee Jack. If you asked 100 people in Key West who Jack Pittorino is, no one would know. He is Yankee Jack. Celebrity and entertainer.
Yankee Jack sings and plays the keyboard at the Bull on Duval. He only works 20 hours a week. Four hours a day for five days. Not bad.
Yankee Jack recently wrote a book. Was it Something I Sang? There are some interesting tidbits in the book I would like to share with you.
The book is dedicated to Yankee’s wife Kathryn. They met over the Internet. Married 12 years ago. Katherine is from England. Yankee says of Katherine…..You cannot bullshit this woman.
Regarding his working a mere four hours a day, five days a week, Yankees says…..There is no substitute for life in Key West.
Yankee loves being an entertainer. Enjoys being on stage. He says of his life…..When I perform it is as close to masturbation as one can get with his pants on.
All of the above is contained in the first three pages of Yankee’s new book. You can imagine what the rest of the book must be like! Read Yankee Jack’s book. You will enjoy it.
Boxed on my own at the gym in the morning. Love hitting the big bag!
Then it was to Publix. The cupboard was not merely bare. It was woefully bare. I have been living on stale bread crumbs the past few days.
Spent the rest of the day working on this Friday’s Internet show. The Key West Lou Legal Hour. Join me at 10 AM my time. http://www.konkbroadcasting.com/. A great show in development.
Last night began at the Chart Room. I knew from Facebook that Jean Thornton was returning yesterday. I hoped to run into her. I did. There she was seated at the bar with her husband Joe. Sheila and Cindy there, also. JJ bartending. Good people all!
I ate later at the bar at the Hot Tin Roof. Jean and Joe were already there.
Big night tonight! Syracuse basketball! Syracuse plays Seton Hall. Syracuse is 13 – 0 and Seton Hall 11 – 1. I will be at the Sports Page Bar at 7 for the start of the game.
Enjoy your day!
