It's Time for a Fish Fry!

It's Lent! So there's the religious aspect to Lent (which I already blogged about here), and then there's the Fish Fry. Being a Lutheran by upbringing, fish on fridays wasn't mandatory (except at elementary school when we were subjected to nasty fish sticks.) But I have come to appreciate this tradition.

Last night I went to St. Albert the Great's famous fish fry. It's ridiculously popular, attended by hundreds each night, and even City Pages has weighed in and deemed it the best fry in the Cities. (More reporting here at Kare11).

And as usual, the fry did not disappoint. The fried fish was tasty and crispy and the desserts were varied and so delicious. And then there's the best part of the night, B-I-N-G-O!! Yep, after gorging on fish (fried and baked), mashed potatoes, spaghetti and desserts, there's no room for more food, but there's always room for BINGO!

The best part of BINGO this year was the caller. She had all the BINGO jokes flowing. "B-4......and after" and other similar jokes had the crowd rolling. Great times! And the best part is we don't have to wait til next week, just til next Friday. Hurry B-4 all the fish is gone!
