Last weekend I was in Buffalo for the delicious, mouthwatering, succulent, scrumptious Buffalo Wing Festival. The Annual event takes place at Coca-Cola Field (previous Dunn Tire Park) and is a chicken wing lover’s dream! We’re talking more wings in one place than you could ever imagine!
We made our way around and tasted wing after wing to find the best sauce, which in the end is the good old traditional Buffalo sauce, in my humble opinion. The festival also includes a professional and amateur wing eating contest and a variety of other entertainment for attendees (including a serious game of Family Feud, which is what I’m doing in the above photo).
Check out their website for event details for next year!
Next Wednesday the month of cherry blossom events in the District begins with the Pink Tie Party offering a sneak preview of Washington’s top chefs and their “Cherry Picks” dishes. You can expect to see and a cherry-involved interpretation of a sushi roll from Art Smith of Art and Soul who is also hosting the event. You’ll enjoy the music of Nuttin’ But Stringz while sipping on themed cocktails and bites from The Source, Mie N Yu, Ten Penh, fyve and others. For more information and tickets, visit the National Cherry Blossom Festival website.
