And if ya don't ya know!

According to legend, the classic "Buffalo Wing" is celebrating its 48th birthday today, October 3rd.
Here's the short story direct from the Anchor Bar's website:

"On a Friday night in 1964, Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now famous Anchor Bar Restaurant in Buffalo, NY. Late that evening, a group of Dominic's friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat.

They looked like chicken wings, a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup.

Teressa had deep fried the wings and flavored them with a secret sauce. The wings were an instant hit and it didn't take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar."

    Gotta love Anchor Bar, but in Buffalo they are not even the best place to get wings. Usually the little corner pizza joints make the best wings but if you ever go to Buffalo you have to go to Anchor bar just for the experience. For my money I'll take La Nova wings over Anchor Bar any day of the week, but they're all very good and you really can't go wrong ;)
