Chicken-Wing Events Take Off on National Chicken Wing Day

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.

Stoney's is celebrating the wing holiday with all-you-can-eat wings and beer specials, as well as a chicken-wing-eating contest, with free beer for a year going to the winner. For more information, check out the event's Facebook page.

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.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’s three-part Women & Whiskey Tasting Series continues today as participants explore bourbon and chocolate. The restaurant will be pouring Maker's Mark, Basil Hayden's and Bookers bourbons paired with small chocolate bites. The event gets under way at 7 p.m.; tickets are $25 each and can be purchased here.
