Wing Scene Heating Up in Portland, OR!

It's been confirmed that there is a new guy coming to the block on September 6th. A Slice of Buffalo: Pizza and Wings will be piggybacking off the roaring success of Fire On the Mountain and taking the Portland wing scene up one notch. A Slice of Buffalo will be located in the downtown area at 12th and Jefferson and will cater mostly to the carryout crowd with a few seats available for dine in.

I stopped by today for a sneak peak where I was greeted by the owner Jack. He promised me a focus on simplicity, value (read, good prices!), and a focus on TRADITIONAL buffalo wings. The wings will be deep fried, naked, and come in one of four sauces with various heat ranges. They also are going to offer lunch specials that offer either individual items or combinations of pizza, wings, fries, and salads.

I personally can't wait till Tuesday!

Peace, love, and grease!

4th Annual National Buffalo Wing Festival Takes Flight

National Buffalo Wing Festival

The 4th Annual National Buffalo Wing Festival kicks off this holiday weekend in Buffalo, NY. The organization team lead by Drew Cerza, the "Wing King" have lined up another jam packed weekend of buffalo wing fun. The list of events includes the .5K Wing Run, Chicken Wing Eating, Most Creative Wing Sauce, Traditional Wing Sauce, Miss Buffalo Wing, Blue Cheese Bowl, Baby Wing, Mega Car & Truck Show. Oh, and how could we forget to mention a performance by two of the people from the Real World - Austin. I'm not quite sure yet what they are going to be performing or why they are are even going to be there, but I'm sure it will draw in some form of a crowd. I think they should both be forced to enter the wing eating contest and go side-by-side against Cookie, Booker, Sonya and the rest.

This wing festival is a can't miss event if you live in the area (or just want to get away for a while). You'll be treated to wings from over 20 different vendors and get to see the interworkings of the wing industry at it's finest.

Peace, love, and grease!
