It’s the season of Friday fish fries

​The religious observance of Lent continues until Saturday, April 3, which means that for many locals, each Friday between now and then is supposed to be a meatless meal. For Kansas City’s Catholic churches, that means a chance to put on a community dinner of fried fish or shrimp.

One of the more elaborate offerings is put on by the Knights of Columbus Council 11067 of Leawood’s Church of the Nativity. From 5 to 7 p.m. every Friday during Lent, at 2800 West 119th in Leawood, there’s baked tilapia, battered fried cod, catfish nuggets, boiled shrimp (for an additional charge), seasoned red potatoes, Tater Tots, tossed salad, green beans, cheese pizza, macaroni and cheese, dinner rolls, a beverage and dessert. The charge is $9 for adults, $5 for children between 5 and 12 year and $5 for the additional plate if you want the all-you-can-eat boiled shrimp. The family meal price is $35 or $50 to include the boiled shrimp. Children ages 4 and under eat free.

If that’s not enough, here’s a couple more.
