A long time ago in a land not so far away, Fish Frys were the focus of community gatherings on the island.
In an article on the St. John Source, one local describes a Fish Fry as "an event where Virgin Islanders (of all colors, old and new residents, born here, and naturalized) meet, discuss, debate the issues of the day, share ideas, while socializing and breaking bread."
They once were common, now they are few and far between – but one is scheduled for this weekend featuring St. John's reggae ambassadors to the world, Inner Visions.
The Fry is being staged by Owen's Cases by the Sea, the liquor store in Coral Bay that opened last fall.
The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m and goes until 11 p.m. All are welcome, locals and visitors (who owe it to themselves to attend, too). A good time will be had by all who attend.

The “old” Fish Fry held regularly by the Pond was among the best of the community gatherings….
As you stated, highly attended, it provided an informal forum for all “St. Johnians” to revel in the beauty that is what it is all about 🙂
6:30 until 11 which day?
