Lent is just around the corner and so are Shrove Tuesday pancake suppers and Friday night fish fries.
Here are two that popped up on my radar:
- Wake Forest's Hope Lutheran Church will serve an all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage dinner Tuesday night. The meal costs $7 for adults, $4 for children 4-13, and free for children 3 and under. The maximum cost for a family is $22.
The church is at 3525 Rogers Road. For more information, call 919-554-0412 or hopelutheranwf.org.
- The Knights of Columbus Council 7186 will serve fried fish Feb. 15, March 1 and March 15 at St. Mary Magdalene in Apex. The dinner is offered, dine-in or take-out, from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. There is free babysitting while parents enjoy the meal. The church is at 625 Magdala Place. Diners can pre-order their meals online at www.lentfishfry.com.
- St. Michael the Archangel Church in Cary is hosting its annual Lenten fish frys every Friday until March 22. Lunch is served 11 a.m.-1 p.m and dinner is served from 5-7 p.m. Both dine-in and take-out are available. The menu includes fried or baked fish, roasted potatoes, green beans, hush puppies, dessert and a choice of beverage. Childrens' meals include fish sticks, macaroni and cheese, hush puppies, dessert and a beverage. The prices are $8 for adults and $4 for children for lunch, and $10 for adults and $4 for children for dinner. Or you can order a family special for $28, which includes two adult meals or three or more children's meals.
If you are a fan of polka, the Polka Plus Band will perform during the March 8 dinner service. The church is at 804 High House Rd., Cary. Call in a take-out order at 919-468-6126 or order online at spicecubed.com/fish.
