There's only one more fish fry Friday left this year, and we'll be using it to check out the readers' pick. Last week you voted on four very different celebrations; there were strong write-in candidates as well. So, where should we meet you this Friday?
WINNER: St. Ferdinand Catholic Church (1765 Charbonier Road, Florissant; 314-837-3165). St. Ferdinand actually operates its fish fry year round and has been going strong for 61 years. It started out as a parish fundraiser and grew into a weekly event with dozens of volunteers. As the church says, "it is worth the drive and worth the wait."
