Wild Wings has opened in the EpiCentre and, like every bar that’s opened in the EpiCentre, Wild Wings is…. well, wild. But don’t underestimate the Wild Wings in Ayrsley with their Chuck Norris shot — tequila and Red Bull. Because after a night of partying Chuck Norris doesn’t throw up – he throws down...kinda like you after t.v. tailgating for the SuperBowl last night, right?
There was the Super Ad Madness party at the Attic where the big game was more like a championship of commerce. I dug the addition of 3-D commercials — a fun marketing gimmick to make everyone feel drunk. Meanwhile, Blackfinn took its Sunday Funday up a couple notches and Wild Wings had a wing buffet. And I got an interesting invite for a Super Bowl party called La Fiesta de M.A.S Debauchery Futbol Americana at the “soon to be infamous Mexi-Café.”
But most people this year did the house party thing and capitalized on the traditional pigskin pot luck party. Who knew there were so many variations of ways to prepare chip dip.
My favorite food is anything smothered in buffalo sauce – so clearly I recommend Wild Wings and their 33 variations of wings for some good eating.
Speaking of good eating – last week was Charlotte Restaurant Week. An economic stimulus package for fine diners that offered a Queen Feast of a three course meal for $30.
Although concluded, Fiamma Restaurant has extended its another week and might I suggest taking advantage of it. However, be advised the calamari appetizer is not your typical fried calamari dish — it’s a salad that looks like intestines garnished with avocados — and it totally freaked me out.
And speaking of wings and Chuck Norris — Ed’s Tavern has “Chuck Norris” hot wings. I guess that means whose wings are bad ass because I’ve come to find out that Chuck Norris actually invented the C-section — because he round house kicked his way out of his mother’s womb and when the Boogy Man goes to bed, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris. True Story.
