The first day of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday!
In observance of the holiday, the Catholic Church and many Christian churches give up eating meat on Friday’s – there are seven of them during Lent.
That means, a ton of fish fry’s are popping up all over the city.
So whether you’re abstaining from eating meat or just want to try out some good fish and chips, here’s a list of locations for you courtesy of CHICAGO LENTEN FISH FRY CLUB.
