Detroit bar preps for big fish fry after national attention

A fast-food chain's national television commercial is a fine kettle of fish for a Detroit bar.
The Long John Silver's ad focuses on the fish fry at the Nancy Whiskey bar in the city's Corktown neighborhood.
Bartender Sheryl Grogan says she's been taking calls from across the country since the 30-second commercial went public.
Grogan says Nancy Whiskey is expecting "to get bombarded" at its fish fry on Friday, the first since the ad aired.
Workers ordered six cases of fresh fish for Friday's dinner.
The bar serves frozen cod and shrimp and normal tavern food during the week, but switches to fresh fish for the weekly fish fry.
Grogan says the bar knew the ad was being filmed, but it wasn't expecting the resulting attention.
