John Knox Presbyterian Church (JKPC) in North Olmsted, OH, will be hosting a fish fry the first five Fridays of Lent: February 16 and 23 and March 2, 9 and 16. Doors open at 4:45 p.m. and the last seating is at 6:45 p.m. As expected, the kitchen will be cooking up some delicious food. On the menu will be battered or baked fish, battered chicken, breaded shrimp, shrimp scampi and macaroni and cheese. Sides offered include french fries, baked potatoes, rice pilaf, macaroni and cheese, cole slaw, green beans and applesauce. Adult Dinners start at $8 each but may be added to inexpensively via the a la Carte menu. See the full menu with pricing here.
What you can’t find at any other fish fry (or anywhere until April) is Weber’s Premium Vintage Ice Cream. Weber’s frozen delights are legendary in Northeast Ohio, and those dining will have the opportunity to experience what uniquely high quality ice cream tastes like. In addition to cookies, brownies and other desserts, Weber’s will provide mainstays like “Euclid Beach Vanilla” and “Higbee’s Frosted Malt.” There will also be a new, modern flavor featured every week, as well as Cherry Vanilla NSA.
“We’re really grateful that David Ford [founder of Weber’s] wanted to share his gifts of hospitality and ice cream with our fish fry,” said Rev. Dr. Tom MacMillan of JKPC. He continued, “In a lot of ways, this is the embodiment of ‘church’ a place of community, sharing and eating.”
Join us each week to share in the delicious food and amazing desserts as well as live entertainment from local performing groups. The proceeds from this fish fry will go toward the ongoing service and outreach of John Knox Presbyterian near and far.
