Robert Pinkert Present – A Video About His Life

This is a wonderful video that we presented to my father, Robert Pinkert on his 85th birthday, February 6, 2012. We had a party for him at Capital Grill on February 4 where we debuted this video. Pam and Zach Dropkin, my sister and brother in law, made the video. The video features wonderful still photographs from my father’s past and a terrific soundtrack. On February 5th we had a second party for Dad at our home, Sherma and Steven Pinkert, in Miami, Florida


Presidents Day Weekend in Key West

Sherma, Ian, dad and I just had a very nice weekend in Key West. Dad sailed down on his boat and the 3 of us flew down to meet him on Friday evening.

The weather was nice, blue sky and not too humid – for Key West. We didn’t bring our dog, Bear, because we flew, but he would have enjoyed it.

Steven Pinkert’s Take on some Key West Food

We had some good food at Michaels Restaurant.  Basically a steak house with excellent side dishes. In addition to great fillet mignon, the veal chop and pork chop are a definite yes. The sides, particularly the mac and cheese was also quite good. Highly recommended.

We had a quick lunch at Alonzo which is on the first floor of AB Lobster House. The fish was fantastic.  I had a blackened snapper sandwich which I inhaled, and the caesar salad with mahi mahi was equally good.

Saturday night Sherma, Ian, Eli and Ana went out to a bar with a mechanical bull. (I was tired and went back to the hotel.). They had fun and Ana was awesome on the Bull! Sherma, luckily, declined to mount the bull. Then, this morning, after little sleep, Sherma, Ian, Eli and Ana went flats fishing for 6 hours. I would never – the heat, etc., – not for me. But they caught lots of fish including a tarpon, grouper and they snagged a few sharks.

It was a wonderful weekend – particularly spending time with my father – and he had a good time.

Postscript: We flew back and my father came back to MIami on his boat. At about Islamorada a hose broke on the port engine forcing them to stay the night in Islamorada.  My dad was unfazed and enjoyed it.

Steven Pinkert’s Father’s 85th Birthday Celebration

Robert Pinkert’s 85th Birthday Celebration

Last Sunday – Super Bowl Sunday, we celebrated my father, Robert Pinkert’s 85th Birthday.  We had the party at our home (in Miami) and we had about 40 guests.  Many of my father;s friends attended along with a few of my friends, my siblings, and my nephews and nieces.  Also cousin Phil, one of my two oldest friends came to the party.

The theme was Superbowl and the food was really terrific although we had way too much. I had set up large screen TVs for everyone’s viewing and amazingly the weather held out. (It was threatening rain for the entire day.)

My father had a wonderful time and his only criticism was that we waited to serve until half time.
