Lenten Fish Fry Guide

Lent is one of my favorite times of the year not only because I have made amazing lifestyle changes through abstinence over the season, but also for the amazing Fish Fry event at many VFWs, churches and even local restaurants. Here are some local options for Fridays through April 3rd, 2015.
