Lent approaches eat fish

So we have another Lenten season thrust upon us by the Liturgic calendar. I have long awaited this season of sacrifice. So shed yourself of the revelry many practiced in this Carnival across town over the past few weeks, beginning with the decadance of purple and gold festooned furry critters in a parade and ending in the boisterous merrymaking of flashing of bare asses out of apartment windows in Soulard.

It is time to dine upon the fish.

So if you would like to find a new fish supper, please take consideration of the following gatherings for this weekly holy Lenten feast.

There is a fish marking the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday(this week) from 4-7pm at the New Cathedral on Lindell from 4-7pm.

I will be attending the following Fish Fry Fridays. All are welcome to enjoy the fish, beverages and company.

Friday March 3rd
Saint Joan of Arc at Pernod and Hampton
4-7pm. Most parties show up around 5pm.
Good classic eats with a wider menu of more inviting items and complimentary beverages if the lines are too long. Bonus:Hardworking elementary level youth keeping the room tidy and willing to fetch sides for pocket change.

Friday March 10th
Saint Matthew's 2715 North Sarah between MLK and Nat Bridge
4-7pm. Parties show up around 5pm.
This is going to be the first Fish Fry this parish has had in a good long while. The Jesuits are operating this church so it should be an extra interesting experience.

We do plan on going to some old favorites and new ones. We will not be able to go to some of the old favorites such as Holy Family since the Archbishop shut it down. We do plan on going to the Polish Falcons, Saint Pius, Epiphany Lanes, Mary Assumption on Dolman, Francis de Sales and Saint Stanislaus.

Considering your pre-lenten indulgences, maybe you should have been a priest.

Does anyone know when St. Stanislaus' fish fry will be held? I went to their website but didn't see any update with that info. I would love to make it up that way this lenten season.

But I'm a Jewish vegetarian!

(Heh. Thanks for adding the link, sir -- I've thrown one right back at you.)

Saint Stans had traditionally not had a Fish Fry, but there was one just a few blocks up the street at the Polish Falcons Nest on Saint Louis Ave. I hope that Saint Stans will have one this year. I bet they would do well in the fundraising category if they did.

There's a fish fry at the Five Star Senior Center, corner of Oregon and Arsenal, every Friday during Lent (except St Patrick's Day). That's right down the block from St Wenceslaus Catholic Church.

I think the time is 3:00 to 7:00 PM, and the cost is $6.
