Photos: Wings & Whiskey Swoops Into Ace Eat Serve

Ain't no thing but a chicken wing — unless you want to add some whiskey, too. That's exactly what the chefs and bartenders at Ace Eat Serve did yesterday for Wings & Whiskey, the annual fundraiser for for the Denver Housing Authority's Youth Culinary Academy. Ticket holders grabbed flappers from Cho77, Coperta, Lou's Hot & Naked (coming soon to downtown), the Big Red F restaurant group, Desmond, the King of Wings food truck, the Osage Cafe and the host team, noshing on everything from classic Buffalo-style to Nashville hot to pungent Vietnamese. Chef Ryan Gorby's Cho77 team flew off with the Wing King trophy while live music, a wing-eating contest and ping pong kept the crowd entertained. This was one event where everyone was their own wing man.

For more wing action, see our complete Wings & Whiskey slideshow.
