More than 20,000 pounds of cod, perch, walleye, and more from several local restaurants will be hungrily consumed at Milwaukee's Largest Fish Fry. Fish will be sold in 3 oz. portions (starting at $3 each), so festival goers should have plenty of stomach space to sample the sea-fare from 15+ restaurants, including Serb Hall, Trysting Place Pub, Major Goolsby's, and Weissgerber Gasthaus. In addition to admission, each ticket gives fish fanatics a host of complimentary sides to nosh on in between building cod-consisting Jenga towers. Snack on french fries from McCain and the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Association, cleanse palates with S. Rosen's rye bread, and garnish your immaculate fish with McCormick's tartar sauce.

Invite your friends and family, put on your Big Mouth Billy Bass 10-gallon hat, and enjoy the live music and flavorsome fish with today's Groupon to Milwaukee's Largest Fish Fry.
