I failed to write about last week’s fish fry outing. Since Jason had buddies over for poker last night, it opened the perfect opportunity to share 🙂
Last Friday’s fish fry was a good one, as Jason and I met my old college crew at MJ Stevens north of Milwaukee.
The group of us have gotten together every few months for fish (primarily) and our past experiences have been, um, interesting to say the least. The first attempt left the group doubling over in their respective homes later that night with stomach “issues.” The second attempt found us at a snooty restaurant, where we clearly felt unwanted, with extremely poor service. The most recent left us all hard of hearing thanks to an insanely loud polka band right next to our table. I don’t know if we could have handled another bad experience 😉
Not to fear. MJ Stevens was AWESOME! The fish was incredible and HUGE! We could order one, two, three, or four pieces. My friend Ryan was warned, but he started the four-piece trend. Jason did it, too. I was smart and opted for two.
I only snapped this one bad picture 🙁 . I realized halfway to the restaurant that I had forgotten my point-and-shoot camera. But even when it came to taking pictures with my phone, I felt really shy. I must have been dealing with the “framing paralysis” I’ve read about.
I really wish that MJ Stevens was closer to home. It would definitely become our regular haunt if it were.
