Hey, foodie party people! Thanks for coming on Creative Loafing's Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tour this past Saturday, June 26.

We stopped at four delicious restaurants and sampled seven different flavors/styles of pizza.

Giacomo's, Due Amici, Villa Francesca, and Wolfman Pizza served up their best pizzas which included: pepperoni, fresh mozzarella and tomato, stuffed chicken Parmesan pizza, grandmother's pizza, the Mojo pizza, and two dessert pizzas – banana split and smores.

Everyone was so stuffed we had to practically roll the pizza tour folks off the bus at the end.

Photos from the Eat My Charlotte Wing Tour

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 12:16 PM

Saucy-smelling fingers and spicy lips. That's what we all came away with after Creative Loafing's Eat My Charlotte Wing Tour on Saturday, March 6.

Our readers and staff hit the road in a big ol' party bus to taste 10 flavors of the best wings in town. We ate (and drank) our way through Charlotte, hitting up Lebowski's, Wing King, D.D. Peckers, and Moosehead Grill.

Thanks to all who joined us for our tour! I hope you had fun. If you weren't on the Wing Tour, check out all the fun you missed:

More Wing Tour research

Posted By on Fri, Feb 5, 2010 at 4:32 PM

The things I do for the sake of research. And our readers. Really.

Here are a few pics from a "secret location" where I sampled chicken wings. They were so finger-licking good, I now have orange stained nails ... and I feel so full I want to put on a pair of overalls. Not a good feeling.

You want some of these? Join our Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tour featuring chicken wings on March 6. Yes, it happens to fall on the same day as the UNC vs. Duke basketball game.* The tour can serve as your pre-game party since we'll be serving wings and free beer on the tour bus. Perfect.

*Only UNC fans on the foodie tour, please! (Just kidding ... but not really.)

To ensure we will be taking y'all to the best wing spots in town, we did our highly scientific and methodical research yesterday by driving around Charlotte and taste-testing it all. Here's a few pictures of what we tried. You may be tasting a few of these on the tour.

Tickets for the tour will be available for purchase online in the next week.
