Dayton has a lot of great things, of which you are probably already aware. However, I’d like to fill you in on a little known secret about a special season that goes on each year here. Yes, you’re aware of our holiday seasons, as well as the four seasons of the year. To most of you, the season I am talking about might sound a little fishy. It actually started last Friday at Holy Angels Church. Have you guessed it? If you haven’t, I’m just going to flat out tell you – Dayton has the best “Fish Fry Season” around!When you hear “fish fry”, the words “boring” or “dull” may come to mind. Well let me tell you something…Dayton fish fries are nothing of the sort! Traditionally, fish fries were held on Fridays during the season of Lent as we Catholics don’t eat meat on those days. However, with the many Catholic parishes/schools and other organizations out there, and the amazing popularity of fish fries, they have expanded to Fridays outside of Lent as well. At a typical fish fry, you will be able to experience an amazing evening full of fish, chips (fries really), beer, silent auctions, black jack, poker, and much more! Plus, the cost you pay is significantly less than the amount you would spend on a night out on the town…and it supports a good cause! So, regardless of whether you are Catholic or not, definitely make a point to “catch” at least one or more of these great fish fries this season.

Oh…and how could I leave without sharing a dumb joke?
What did the fish say when it swam into the wall? Dam!
