Dave Buckley, chief of the St. Mary of the Pines Men's Club catfish dinners, just called me to take issue with the claim in today's paper that St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's Knights of Columbus has the best catfish in town on Friday nights. Not only does St. Mary's have the best fish, he said, but also the best coleslaw. They serve about 200 plates each week.
I have never eaten at either place, so I can't say. But I do see a cook off brewing between the two south Shreveport churches. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.... How 'bout it men?
