Check out this post on Cycle Twin Cities about the Urban Assault Ride on June 10th. You and a teammate will compete bike to check points where you will have to complete a challenge. Sort of like the Amazing Race on bikes. Although, I don’t think they will have you go skydiving or climb a building. There are prizes and the cost is only $100 until this Saturday then goes up to $120.
I am not sure if I have the skillz to participate, but if you do, give it a try. Plusm there is beer at the end of the race. You can’t really go wrong there.
(Thanks for the correction! The cost is now updated so that it is correct:))
It is Catholics favorite time of the year Lent! The Catholics give up eating meat on Fridays but they get to have something delicious instead: FISH!
You don’t have to be a Catholic to enjoy the fish fries around the state during the Lenten season. Welcome one and all to the fish fries!
A full list can be found at The Catholic Spirit.
Here is a few of my picks:
St. Albert the Great Catholic Church
2836 33rd Avenue South
They feed about 700 people every Friday night. It is the Twin Cities most popular fish fry. They have bingo and many other activities but be prepared to stand in a line.
Any of the VFW’s are a great spot to go because you can get beer as well. Richfield VFW is always highly rated. Beer always enhances the flavors of the fish or at least that is my perception. Knights of Columbus Hall in Bloomington is another hall open 5 to 9 PM at 1114 American Blvd. Call (952) 888-1492 for reservations.
If you are looking for something other than fish, head over to Our Lady of Guadalupe in St. Paul from 11:00-6:30PM. You can also get them to-go by the dozen. On 401 Concord St.
My best suggestion is to try out a parish in your community. There is nothing better than meeting your neighbors over a great meal.
I would love to hear about your Fish Fries. Leave me a comment or find me on twitter @mplsgossipgirl.
