Wilton’s Catering will be holding a fish fry this Saturday at Red Clay Brewing Company in recognition of the community opening up again and in support of Alabama Catfish Producers.
“We just wanted to let people know we’re back open,” Chris Wilton said, “Why don’t we come outside, get some sunshine, do some stuff in downtown Opelika?”
Wilton’s will be frying Alabama-farmed catfish on site and will serve hush puppies, Wilton’s baked beans and creole potato salad. As if that spread needed any supplementation, Red Clay Brewing Company and John Emerald Distilling Company will have drinks for sale, and O Town Ice Cream will be serving dessert.
This will be Wilton’s Catering’s first open event of the summer, and they ask all attendees to observe social distancing and act in compliance with the CDC’s and Governor’s recommendations. “I know some people are still anxious about the coronavirus,” Wilton said, “but we just want people to be comfortable to come out and grab something to eat and be a part of the community again.”
The fish fry will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are available online, and Wilton’s asks that people who plan to attend buy their tickets in advance to help keep arrivals spread out through the day. For more information or to buy tickets, go to Wilton’s Catering on Facebook.
