Fish Fries in West Michigan
The season of Lent is upon us, which means there are fish fries all over West Michigan. Too many of them for us to list, but if you are looking for that traditional perch, walleye, or even shrimp dinner, you should have no trouble finding them at local schools, parishes, and churches.
Many are even offering drive-thrus to keep with social distancing guidelines.
