2014 Wing Wars Review

IMG 0181

Today was the 10th annual Wing Wars in Troy.  All three foodies went to this event, and as usual, we all had our own top favorites.  There was a good crowd attending again this year and 15 participating restaurants.

Wing Wars is a fun event that lets you try all sorts of wacky wing variations (some of the stranger ones this year were a pepperoni pizza wing and a raspberry wing with Thai peanut sauce -PB&J - wing).  As with all events like this, there are some long lines and the very important cash bar.

Our own Foodie Josie was selected to be an official judge of the blind taste test.

At $20 / per person, it is a bargain for all the samples you get, and you get to help support a local school.

Our Votes:

Brian:  Forty One Sports Bar & Grill  (Habenero wing)

Josie:  Recovery Room (Blue Cheese Buffalo wing)

Kent: Black Bear (Bourbon wing)
