Lenten Saturdays

We have often commented on the ubiquitous Lenten Friday fish fry, restaurants filled with people eating fish.  It was not until yesterday that we discovered the Lenten Saturday throwback at Outback Steakhouse, or the subsequent lack of a wait at the local fish restaurant.  New discoveries await.

Where we eat out
On Saturday night
In Lent
Was a challenge
Until we finally figured
The fish places
Would be empty.
Friday night is seasonally
Not safe
To frequent
Even meat locales.
Friday features
The All You Can Eat
Fish fry
The Lenten fish run
Restaurants full of people
Honoring the season
With fried fish
And tartar sauce.
On Saturday everyone
Eats red meat.
On Saturday night
In Lent
Red Lobster
Is the safest bet.
