The BEST and dare I say ORIGINAL Fish Fry Map is updated for 2014! All I'm going to say is, I started this because there was no site on the internet that compiled all the fish frys in one place. I'm sure there will be a lot of them this year, because ours is super popular. I appreciate all of you sharing this one when people ask about fish fry on social media, and I worked through the weekend to update because you were already sharing the 2013 link last week!
The problem with finishing it early is that not everyone has posted their details yet. Leave a comment if you have fish fry locations or details to contribute. I will add ANY Lenten fish fry to the map this year, no matter how far from St Louis. I want to hear from all my readers and make this the ultimate 2014 Fish Fry list.
A note on dates: For the purposes of the blog, Lent is from Ash Wednesday (3/5) until Maundy Thursday (4/17). All Fridays of Lent means 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28, 4/4, and 4/11. ALL THE FRIDAYS Fish Fry means Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent as listed above, and Good Friday.

Fish Fry I Would Travel For: St Joseph in Farmington. For one, it's all you can eat. For two, they have a different specialty side every week, and I am a sucker for fried okra.
The Best Blog For St Louis Fish Fry Reviews: Look, I can't get to all of them, I just give you a list. When I am looking for a review, I go to Friday Night Fish.
It takes 15-20 hours to put this map together, and the average church website is blinding in its design. Please do me a solid and link to the website rather than the map when you share with your friends and family! Also, if your church has any vendor fairs during the year, I’d love to join you with Jewelscent and handmade products!
