Toast, 231 S. 2nd St. in Walker's Point, will launch a Friday night fish fry pop-up called Toast'd beginning Dec. 7.
"We have been having a lot of fun with our breakfast/brunch/lunch concept called 'Toast' and want to extend the party into Friday nights," says the restaurant's Gordon Goggin in an email.
The pop-up will be '70s disco themed and will operate from 5 until 9 p.m., offering what it calls a "retro fish fry" – albeit one without potato pancakes, sadly – as well as "cheap beer, chill service and groovy tunes from the '70s."
There will also be board games available on the "High Life" mezzanine.
The fish fry is priced at $7 and you can get a four-pack of Grainbelt, Schlitz, Old Style and Old Milwaukee for just $2.76.
The restaurant will also offer entrees like shrimp tacos and popcorn shrimp, sides like Caesar salads and sweet potato fries, and a variety of apps, including shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, a cheese board and soft pretzels.
