Righteous Wings

Surprise, surprise... I had Chicken Wings for dinner last night. I went to Righteous Room on Ponce de Leon in Atlanta. This place was originally recommended to me by B.A. (more on him in a future post) in January. He suggsted them because they sell their Wings by the pound rather than by the dozen. I first tried their Wings several weeks ago and was not too impressed. I thought they tasted really vinegary and that they were nothing special. Last night, however, the Wings were delicious. I ordered them spicy and was pleasantly surprised by how much better they were this time around. The Wings had just the perfect amount of spice to them. I could definitely taste the spice, but it didn't overpower me or make me sweat (or cry). The Wings were all nicely sized, and even the smaller ones couldn't be characterized as stragglers. This is why it is important to give mediocre Wings another try... they could tun out to be divine.

On another note, please don't forget to get me your pledges for the "Wings for Soldiers" fund raiser. Pledges are approaching $100 which will buy a nice amount of Wing sauce for our brave soldiers. Feel fee to email me at ChickenWingProject@yahoo.com for more information on this.

Help Me Out

January approaches fast. In fact, It seems to be getting closer each and every day! This means I need your help in promoting the Chicken Wing Project.

I need you to do whatever you can to help me get some publicity for the Chicken Wing Project. I became somewhat almost famous this past January due to the Project and would like to achieve some sort of actual celebrity status this coming January.

I was talking to a friend of my family from Washington state who told me that he was telling someone at work about the Chicken Wing Project when they told him that they actually had been reading my blog everyday.

I have been recognized at a bar in Virginia Highlands.

But my favorite story of recognition: I was in Denver in June and I was talking about Chicken Wings (because I always talk about them) and she told me that she had heard something on the radio that a Wing lover such as myself would absolutely love. She then proceeded to tell me about a guy who ate nothing but Chicken Wings for a month!

This is all great, but I would like to really get noticed this time around. As I said before, this is the greatest accomplishment in the history of mankind and it would be an absolute shame if the world didn't find out about it.

HERES WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR ME:

1. Email your friends. If you have been reading this blog with any regularity, please send out an email to your friends telling them about the Chicken Wing Project. Please be sure to include a link to my new site http://www.ChickenWings08.com.

2. Call or email a local radio station. If you are bored at work, shoot an email to your favorite morning show and maybe I can get an interview or at least some free press out of it.

3. Help me find a sponsor. If you know anyone in the Chicken Wing industry, tell them about the Project and maybe I can get a sponsorship out of the deal (or at least a free meal).

4. Take out a full page ad for me in the New York Times. If you do this for me, I'll be your best friend.

Wings In Denver

I was back Denver last week for Thanksgiving. Denver is the city where I "grew up." Because I was not yet Wing crazy when I lived in Denver, I know very few places to get Wings when I am back. Saturday afternoon, I went to the Blake Street Tavern watch the Georgia/Georgia Tech game. The Blake Street Tavern is located near Coors Field and is a part of the Flying Dog brewery. I have been there in the past, but I have only eaten a burger. Their burgers are delicious and I have heard that there is nothing bad on the menu. My buddy Homer told me that the Wings were delicious and so even though I had eaten a few hours earlier I knew that I must taste these Wings.

I ordered mine Buffalo style because sometimes simplicity is the best route.

I liked the Wings. They were all nice and big (no stragglers) and were coated in sauce. They had just a little kick to them which went well with their nice buffalo flavor.

Plus, it was a great game and we ended up beating Tech (which my roommate calls "so gay") by 2 touchdowns which is over a dozen Wings!

Chicken Wings In Iraq

I am gearing up to do the Chicken Wing Project again and today I happened to sign into my MySpace account for the first time in months. I found a message from an American soldier named Phil who had friended me during the Chicken Wing Project:

You are my hero! If i could eat wings for a year, id be happy as hell!

We got em here in iraq everyday, but they are weak. Little to no sauce at all. They try and vary the flavors from spicy, honey mustard, bbq, and some other weird sauce from time to time, but i think its a cover up. The wings have no flavor. You should start a website to change this! Start a fundraiser to send some damn hot wing sauce to iraq to help feed these soldiers! But im only kidding. Im stationed at benning, but never been to any of the places you mentioned. i come back in march, so maybe ill try a couple of your joints.

-----
Phil--I appreciate your support for the Chicken Wing Project man. I am glad that our soldiers can have Wings every day, but it saddens me deeply that the Wings are so bad. It is nice of you to call me your hero, but if anything, you are my hero. Stay safe in Iraq and hit me up when you get to Georgia and I'll buy ya a dozen Wings.



So, I have heard that there are ways to send care packages to our brave soldiers overseas and I think it would be a great idea to send Phil and his unit a bunch of good Wing Sauce in time for Christmas. If people can get me a bottle of some good Wing Sauce by December 1st, I will arrange for it to be shipped to Iraq so that our troops can enjoy some tasty Wings. My friends know how to find me, but other people can email me at ChickenWingProject@yahoo.com for information on where to send the Wing Sauce.

THANKS!

I just signed into the blog today (November 20th) and saw this post with a list of names of people to thank that I had meant to post back in February and I must have forgotten about it.

Thanks to everyone for their support! I have decided to thank everyone from the FaceBook group that I created by name. I really appreciate the support you gave me. I especially am thankful to those of you with fake names such as "Teen Wolf, Beef Taco, and Detective Cat."

Thanks to my Dad and Ben Allen, neither of whom are on FaceBook.

Thanks also to everyone who visited the site who wasn't in the FaceBook club. I don't wanna piss some of you off by thanking you and not others, so just consider yourself thanked if I haven't already thanked you.
