Today is National Chicken Wing Day, and Denver will be ablaze with wing-related events including wing-eating contests, all-you-can-eat deals and more. And if chicken wings aren't your things, indulge in a whiskey-and-chocolate pairing at Whiskey Tango Foxtrot — if you're a lady. Fly over the mid-week hump at one of these tasty events today.
Celebrate National Chicken Wing Day with Hurricane Grill and Wings in Littleton. The restaurant is celebrating with an all-you-can-eat wing deal for just $12.99, including your choice of flavors and combinations. For more on this deal, call the restaurant at 303-573-8000.

Boulder's West End Tavern is hosting its bi-annual Wing King Challenge today. For a $25 entry fee, contestants can try their hand at polishing off fifty wings in under thirty minutes. Those who finish the challenge get a Wing King T-shirt, his or her mug shot on the West End Tavern website, and a $25 Big Red F gift card. The king who cleans the bucket of wings the fastest gets free wings for a year, a $100 Big Red F gift card, a Wing King T-shirt, his or her mug shot on the wall of fame and on the West End’s website for eternity — and all the bragging rights that the title of Wing King entails.
