Drake Bergman, manager of The Print Shoppe in North Huntingdon, shows off a Top Ten Fish Fries T-shirt.

Ash Wednesday is upon us. It’s the start of Lent, marking the 40 days of penance and fasting until the celebration of Easter.

Lent is also a time when churches, fire departments and civic associations open their doors and serve up hot, crispy fries, flaky fish and other assorted tasty seafood offerings. Easter Sunday is April 21.

Fish fries are so popular, in fact, that a T-shirt print shop in North Huntingdon has, for the second year, created a customized shirt with its own top 10 fish fries in Westmoreland County.

The shirts will be sold during Lent, said Drake Bergman, manager of The Print Shoppe on Route 30. Vote for your favorite on its Facebook page. The Print Shoppe also publishes a map with 54 area fish fry locations.

Here are some places to try throughout Lent. If you’d like your fish fry included, email the details to [email protected]

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
