This past Friday I went with the boys to the Portuguese Social Club in Stonington CT for the FISH FRY! How do I explain the joy that this community gathering gives me???
Not only are the Fish, Scallops, Clams straight off the boat but they are served in a community hall with loads of personality. The kind of place that you bring your ticket to the kitchen, get your beverage at the makeshift bar, collect your silverware from the bucket near the oyster crackers and wait for some handsome gent to call out your lucky number. Men ranging from age 17 to 89 run the kitchen, serve the tables and clean the tables (I like this theme). They are funny, quirky, silly and engaging as they volunteer for the most lucrative fundraiser that the club has each year. Check it out soon as Good Friday is the last one of the season!!
