It's all about location, location, location....... DW and I will take the "fish of the day" prepared on the shores of our favorite lakes or rivers over just about any restaurant meal. We like those indoor experiences too, of course, but there's something special about eating fish so fresh they scream "ouch!" when they hit the hot oil!

Yeah, hard to beat fresh crappie or bluegill, dredged in cornmeal, and fried golden brown in a skillet over the campfire! Usually, there's some frosty, adult beverages involved.

Grilled salmon, grilled scallops, grilled shrimp, and, of course, lobster...

Ribeye or tenderloin of cow beef...

BBQ yardbird...

Milk and chocolate chip cookies!

Homemade ice cream!

This Friday evening the garden club I belong to is having our annual fish fry! It will all be bluegill and crappie that was caught in the pond on the property of the hosting members. He fries up a LOT of fish during those fish fries....last year he fried up about 40-50 pounds of fish. He uses one of those propane-fired turkey deep fryers. There's fish, and beer, and salads, and beer, and dessert, and beer.....oh yeah, and there's also beer.

Goonie, can you export some of that fish fry to No. Cal. We have beer here but the fish and chips are no substitute for a good mid-western Friday fish fry.

Gee, I would, but the fish would probably get squirshed pretty badly in the envelope during transport....plus the postal employees handling it would probably be mauled by vicious felines from far and wide, and then I'd end up feeling terrible for their misfortune and misery!

Ugh. I havent found a place anywhere in norcal that has any idea how to make fish and chips. Its either some skinny piece of fish with 5000lbs of tempura batter on it, or some decent piece of fish with thin soggy breading.

I regularly miss Kelly's on Revere Beach...
