Did you know that the United States consumes almost 300 chicken wings per person per year? And that the chicken wing, as we know them and love them, did not come about until 1964?
They were initially served as a late night snack in order to satiate several college students at a local bar… some things never change, huh?
Oh, and can you take a wild guess as to where this culinary revolution began? Yep, you guessed it: Buffalo, New York.
This July 29th, we can all thank Mayor Stan Makowski, mayor of the city of Buffalo, New York who proclaimed it Chicken Wing Day in 1977.
Perfect timing to kick off the upcoming sport seasons, with baseball approaching the postseason, football only a couple weeks away, and both basketball and hockey not far after that.
So start whetting your appetite and make some room for chicken wings this year! Get some practice so you are fully prepared once the sports season rolls around.
