Lake Placid Who has the best chicken wings in our region?
Wing Wars 5, a friendly competition among area restaurants that will raise funds for North Country Life Flight, will take place Sunday, Nov. 11, at 4 p.m. at Wiseguys in Lake Placid.
Seven eateries so far plan to participate; each bringing 500 of their best wings. The event is sponsored by WSLP-FM 93.3, is presented by Yuengling, distributed by Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service.
For $12 admission, those in attendance get to eat wings for as long as they last. All of the door proceeds will be donated to North Country Life Flight, the region’s air medical rescue team. Raffles and auction items will also be part of the festivities with all funds benefitting Life Flight. Among the raffle prizes is a Bass Fishing and Outdoor Package donated by Yuengling.
Participating eateries in Wing Wars 5 include 2008, 2009 and 2011 Wing War Champion Wiseguys; 2010 Wing War Champion Kanu Restaurant at Whiteface Lodge; The Cottage Café; Dancing Bears Restaurant at High Peaks Resort, Bima’s Deli; Delta Blue Restaurant and Price Chopper.
Past years have seen wings seasoned with maple, chipotle, lime, garlic and a whole range of seasonings and flavors. All who attend will receive a ballot and after they’ve sampled all the wings, they will vote for their favorite.
