A while back, I experienced my first fish fry in Madison... and wouldn't you know it, some North Carolinians are the ones who took me there!
These are my friends Neal and Melissa Richardson. Neal and I met in Wilmington, North Carolina, a few years ago when he asked me to emcee the Cape Fear Shrimp Festival. For the record, Neal throws some really incredible parties! Check out the Epicurean Evening in Wilmington - it is one of the most popular events in town, and it raises money for great causes, like human trafficking and children living in foster care.
Neal's career brought him to Madison, and so far, he's been a great resource for all-things Wisconsin. Funny how that works! He also used to run a tour business in Wilmington, so I suppose it makes sense that he'd sniff out the good stuff.
We went to Kavanaugh's Esquire Club, where I really loved the family style setting. It was also named one of Madison Magazine's best picks for a fish fry! Can't wait for my next one... always taking suggestions!
