Our Fish Fry tour this past Friday took us to the American Serbian Club on Sarah Street on the South Side. This Fish Fry benefits St. Suva Orthodox Church, home parish of our friends and neighbors, George and Barb Topich. This is the fourth year in a row we have gone to this Fish Fry, and it is another good one. One thing that separates this one from other Fish Fries? There is a bar in the Serbian Club, so I was able to wash down my fish sammich with a cold Iron City Beer. Hard to imagine being able to get an Iron City on the Sahsside, but there you are.

RIP Ralph Wilson.
Wilson's death comes in a week when the family of Bills Hall of Fame quarterback, Jim Kelly, is experiencing a relapse of cancer, and that the cancer is "aggressive and spreading".
A sad week for football fans in general and Bills fans in particular.
