If Wings Be Your Thing - Sactown Wings

If Wings Be Your Thing - Sactown Wings

I cannot think of one friend who does not like chicken wings. They are the quintessential appetizer in that they are the perfect finger food that can be flavored any way you like.  

I, myself, have never been a fan of Buffalo wings. Just don't care for the hot sauce, hate blue cheese, and can take or leave celery. I'm also not a big fan of messy wings. Too much sauce when it's the fatty chicken wing I want to enjoy. But that's the beauty of wings. There's a flavor and style to fit everyone.

If you are interested in going wing crazy on Saturday, then you need to head to Fremont Park for Sactown Wings. This first time event will feature wings from Bar West, Fieldhouse Sports Bar, Chicago Fire, Clark's Corner, the Blue Cue, and Walter'z Wing'z. Beer: Sudwerk, New Glory, Santos, Hoppy, Crispin, MillerCoors, and Lost Coast.
