Three Resons to Come to the Alley Behind Joe’s Warehouse

1) Fresh frozen Salmon fillets,
2) Fresh frozen Whole Salmon fillets,
3) Fresh Smoked and frozen salmon fillets.

Okay people today is your last chance to get your wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon. Come to the alley behind Joe’s Loft (corner of Boulevard and Irwin, on the Irwin side near the dumpster) from 3:00 – 8:00 PM and bring cash, checks or charge cards. Joe’s buddy, Tony the Fish Boy, is back in town from Alaska with his delightful girlfriend Heather, two German Short Hair Pointers and a trailer full of fresh frozen Salmon that he caught himself in Alaska this past season. Tony sells wholesale to fancy schmancy restaurants and groceries, but he always stops twice a year in Atlanta, to see his pal Joe and keeps all of Joe’s friends and neighbors in Salmon. And as Tony says,

straight from my boat to your plate!

Tony has been here for two days already and has made some wonderful dishes to sample. Those of us who came the first day come back yesterday for more. I promised to post his recipes and there are even more on his website.
