Fitness Jock and S.F. Native Jack LaLanne Turns 95 Tomorrow. Toast Him with Cheap Wine and Salad
We feel healthier already. Tomorrow, for his 95th birthday, locally spawned ancient fitness guru Jack LaLanne gets his very own day at John's Grill (63 Ellis at Powell). According to SF City Dish, show up to toast LaLanne with a $.95 glass of wine, which comes with a salad of Dungeness crab, seasonal greens, shrimp, avocado, mushrooms, tomato, and blue cheese dressing (available from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.).Take in a special push-up contest hosted and judged by the sprightly LaLanne, followed by lunch. Tomorrow's lunch is billed as "star studded" -- local fitness instructors will be on hand to aid LaLanne (a San Francisco native) with the push-up contest. No word on whether LaLanne will eat birthday cake. At his 90th birthday bash at John's Grill, the Chronicle reported he had mango sorbet with fruit instead. We're wondering if he put it all through a Power Juicer first.
