Is It Possible For a Fish Fry To Be Trendy?

My friend, and finder of obscure news, Sean, passed along the below link this morning. It appears someone is attempting to map out the fish fries in St. Louis city and beyond. While I think we’ll all agree, his/her starting point is really a sad attempt, I was shocked at how many responses the said mapper received from average joes suggesting additional fish fries to add – some EVEN I have never heard of.

So I ask you this, are fish fries becoming trendy in St. Louis? While yes, we live in a predominantly Catholic city of beer drinkers, I never imagined that fish fries would eventually become mainstream. Can we credit my blog for this apparent new-found popularity, you ask? Well, considering most of my readers are either related to me or close friends, I think not.

If someone creates a group on Facebook entitled “Fans of St. Louis Fish Fries,” I’m quitting.

Put On Your Eatin' Pants

Hey folks,

It's that time of year again. Time to celebrate the sanctity of the Lenten season with fried cod and cheap beer. This week we're kicking the season off at a classy joint -- the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.

For those of you who are new to the blog, the point, or lack thereof, is to attend a fish fry every Friday during Lent as a means to entertain ourselves with irrelevant fish fry fodder. It also serves as a cheap happy hour.

In other news, looks like we may have some competition this year. At first, after reading this article, I thought...maybe we need a catch phrase and t-shirts. Shortly after, I decided authoring a fish fry blog is all the public humiliation I'm good for. At least for the time being.
