Friday Fish Dinners in Dunedin

To help make eating out easier for folks in Dunedin observing meatless Fridays during Lent, we found several organizations, restaurants and churches offering weekly fish dinner specials and gatherings.

Feb. 13 marked the beginning of Lent for Roman Catholics and several other Christian denominations.

Lent is a 40-day period of prayer and fasting in preparation for Easter, the Christian celebration of Jesus's rising from the dead. The practice also involves abstaining from meat on Fridays throughout Lent, leaving many turning to seafood dinners.

To help make eating out easier, we found several organizations, restaurants and churches that offer fish dinner specials on Fridays.

Here are some options to explore:

Repeating Fridays:

  • Fish Dinners at Knights of Columbus #5635
  • Friday Fish Fry at Dunedin Golf Club
  • Dining: Friday Night Fish Fry at Honeymoon Island State Park
  • Friday Night Fish Fry at Cafe Alfresco 
  • Fish & Shrimp Fry at Veterans of Foreign Wars Dunedin-Palm Harbor Post 2550 
  • All You Can Eat Fish Fry at Eddie's Bar & Grill

One-Day Event:

  • Shrimp Boil Number 3 at Church of the Good Shepherd

Um sorry folks but fish and shellfish are still meat

A bit of trivia: In the English language, the definition of meat is broad, referring to the flesh of animals, which is why many people on a vegan diet avoid fish. The Catholic church, however, describes the law of abstinence as it is written in Latin text by Pope Paul VI. The Latin definition of meat (carne) is more precise, specifically referring to mammals and birds only. Here is a better explanation, if you are interested: http://www.jimmyakin.org/2004/02/the_law_of_abst.html

Perhaps a job for the new pope should be to update outdated texts. Fish are ostensibly the birds of the sea and like birds, play key roles in maintaining balance and health of the environment. Back in the days of Pope Paul VI, the seas were considered vast and mysterious. Today we know better and should act accordingly.
