Beer and cheese, people.
Whole Foods is doing a fish fry. Now before you go, you'll have to do a little mental reconciliation. That is, you will have to reconcile the disparity between Whole Foods, with its organic chia seeds and probiotic hot dogs and a fish fry, with its, well, fried stuff. Fried catfish, hush puppies and French fries, to be exact. They'll also throw in some coleslaw. Because health food. The cost is $10 per person.
