The San Franciscans: Bob Pritikin

Monday, September 5, 2005. San Franciscan Bob Pritikin invited renowned crooner Eddie Fisher to entertain friends at Pritikin's annual Labor Day celebration. For those too young to remember, imagine Brad Pitt cuckolding Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie in the 1950s. Fisher left his wife Debbie Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor in what one of the greatest celebrity scandals of that decade. "Elizabeth couldn't make it today," said Fisher onstage at Pritikin's Chenery House. Former Supervisor Tony Hall and chanteuse Denise Perrier performed "Miss Otis Regrets" with Pritikin on the piano and saw. Fisher performed "Oh, My Papa," his biggest hit, but it was Perrier who moved the crowd with a lilting version of "Do You Know What it Means to Miss Orleans."
