How ingrained is the homegrown fast-food chain Fred’s Fish Fry in San Antonio’s consciousness?
Apparently, so much so that an article on a bootleg version of a Spurs jersey with Fred’s tagged as a team sponsor was the Current‘s most-read story of the week. That’s either some serious brand loyalty or a lot of people still unable to figure out the enigma behind the ubiquitous fried-fish shops.
And before anyone blames all the interest in the Fred’s jersey on a slow news week, rest assured, it wasn’t. News broke that the Spurs are considering Hemisfair for a new arena, residents of a suburban neighborhood voiced concern about what might have been an Islamophobic attack on a local physician and controversy swirled around an immigration bill filed by Senate Republicans.
