However, the food alone is enough to draw many, said Jim Williams, vice president and sales manager of WSLP 93.3 FM, the event's sponsor.
"Everyone who attended the event for the past two years has been surprised and impressed with the variety of creative and tasty wing recipes cooked up for Wing Wars," said Williams, "and enjoy eating, voting and helping to save lives by supporting North Country Life Flight. Life Flight is such a critical asset in our region; their service has made such a difference for so many individuals and families in our local area for over 21 years."
Wing Wars will kick off at Wiseguys, 3 School St., at noon. Participating eateries in Wing Wars 3 include 2008 and 2009 Wing War Champion Wiseguys; Romano's Saranac Lanes; Kanu Restaurant at Whiteface Lodge; Dancing Bears Restaurant at High Peaks Resort, Desperado's Mexican Restaurant; The Cellar Bistro; Maggie's Pub at Lake Placid Lodge; and Northern Exposure Restaurant at Northwoods Inn.
Those who attend will receive a ballot and, after they've sampled all the wings, will be able to vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced live on WSLP/93.3 FM.
