Upcoming: Whisky River's Who's Hotter? wing challenge

Posted By on Tue, Jan 28, 2014 at 2:47 PM

On Jan. 31, the popular EpiCentre venue Whisky River is offering Charlotteans a challenge made up of fiery proportions: to consume six of its famous Atomic Wings. Yes, they are worthy of the name - these wings will melt your face off. They're made with Whisky River's specialty sauce, infused with Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper Pepper, from Fort Mill, S.C. - the world's hottest pepper, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.


If you pride yourself on your ability to handle explosively spicy tastes, this might be the challenge for you. You have to be brave (or at least a little cocky) to take on a food challenge that threatens nuclear fallout in your mouth. But the reward is worth the risk; contestants enter to win the grand prize of $500 and a Whisky River T-shirt and hat. Not to mention, you get to say that you faced the Atomic menace and came out victorious.

But for those of us who can't stand a burning mouth, spectator tickets are also available with the added bonus of 15 percent off any regular food purchase. It could be fun to watch the contestants wiping tears and burning sauce from their faces while you're munching on Whisky River's less confrontational menu items. (The Tiny Baby Corn Dogs are my personal favorite.)

And of course, if you'd rather consume something a little less nourishing and a little more fun, the bar will be open. Who knows, maybe you'll end up on Whisky's famous mechanical bull by the end of the night.

Register to be a contestant or spectator at whiskyriverkillerwingchallenge.eventbrite.com by 4 p.m. on Jan. 31. Competition tickets are first come, first serve, so if you're up for the challenge, don't hesitate. $25 to enter. 6 p.m.-10 p.m. Whisky River, 210 E. Trade St.
