That done all that's left is to wait for Friday and the first fish fry of the season.
I haven't been to a fish fry in a long time and never in Cincinnati. I remember them from when I was younger. They were just things to endure in embarrassment in a church basement with your parents so I wasn't expecting too much out of this although I've heard that Mary Queen of Heaven was probably the best fish fry in the area. No that's not quite right, everyone says its the best fish fry with no qualifications. We'll see.
Every time I start thinking bloggers are just like normal people something like this happens. We can't even do something simple like just showing up at a fish fry, oh no, we have to go large, so passports clutched in hand we walked into Mary Queen of Heaven's fish fry.
My notes, The fish and battered fries were just a touch greasy, but just enough to make you inhale them. The fries were crunchy outside tender inside. maybe some of the best fries I've had anywhere.
They had a bunch of side shows going on, the kids in fish costumes, the cod fathers walking around, and then there was Ben the Beer man, hands down the most popular person in the gymnasium.
This definitely isn't your father's fish fry but I think it helped we didn't take ourselves serious and had a good time with it. You should have seen the look on Fathers face when we all asked him to sign our passports, he was having a good time of it too. at least until the 7th or 8th book. I still think he got a kick out of it.
Once we where there the tweets started pouring in, you wouldn't believe how many suggestions we've gotten for fish fry's to try.
We only have 5 weeks left we won't hit them all, but Lent is going to be just a little cooler this year.[where: 45202]best place to learn how to live downtown cincinnati ohio the ethos of Cincinnati
