Skyway Jack’s 2795 34th St S Saint Petersburg, FL 33711

Came in before six a few mornings ago after a long absence. Two friendly pleasant hostesses serving a busy place, one of them says sit anywhere you want. Another shows up immediately with a menu and asks what to drink, coffee please.

She mentions that they are getting up in the world with their ordering tablets, they definitely are. Ordered my usual ham omelet and home fries, which appeared in less than five minutes with a huge helping of potatoes. Coffee cup reloaded at least twice.

This staple of South St Pete has been packing them in for decades, and I’m not surprised why. Opens at 5 AM.


Steak and Shake 10555 Ulmerton Largo FL

Came in on an early morning last week, pleasant friendly service in a clean quiet dining room. This is consistent will all their locations I’ve been to.

Ordered the three silver-dollar pancakes for a buck and a half plus three of their dollar breakfast tacos. Coffee mug reloaded three times at least. Their retro interior and golden oldies music is always welcome.

Unfortunately they are now starting breakfast at six, so it’s the dinner menu before then.


Planet Fitness 11100 US 19 North in Clearwater

First time here last Sunday around 2. Few people were there, may be different on weekdays. They checked out my number, then made me sign a roster since my home gym is the St Pete location. Never had to sign when visiting other locations across Florida.

Huge parking lot on north side of quiet strip mall, on a side street that’s a delight to get in and out of. US 19 overpass across the street so hop on the highway immediately.

This gym is just as big as the main one in St Pete, long rows of treadmills and stationary bicycles flanked by other equipment. Large weightlifting area. Bathroom was spotless. What, no soap? I can live with that.
