|What is Chicken Wing Day?|
Chicken Wing Day was founded by the City of Buffalo, New York, in 1977 in honor of the famous wings slathered in buffalo-style sauce served at a number of local eateries. The precise origin of the buffalo wing isn’t clear. But most legends about the chicken wing have one thing in common. The inventor is described as trying to figure out what to do with the scrawniest part of the chicken. Traditionally, wings had been used to make stock—or simply thrown away as scraps. Now, restaurants and bars use the whole buffalo…chicken…and make a tidy profit.
What these tasty appetizers lack in meat, they more than make up for with sweet or spicy savor. They are typically served with dippin’ sauce as well as celery and carrot sticks. Americans nibble on more than 27 billion chicken wings per year—especially during sporting events like the Super Bowl. Another big day for wings is the Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival in New York every Labor Day weekend. On Chicken Wing Day, have a movie night, watch the sports channel, host a wing eating contest, or try making your own wings and inventing a new sauce!
