You’re going to need the whole roll of Bounty this Sunday! The 2018 Springer Mountain Farms’ Southern Wing Showdown is back for a 3rd year in a new space – The Fairmont in West Midtown. With the new expanded venue comes room for more wings! Up from 25 wings last year, this year approximately 30 restaurants from around the south with show off their best wings recipes. The cities will include: Atlanta, Chattanooga, Birmingham, Savannah, Charlotte and Nashville.
Last year the FEED Co Table and Tavern took the title of best wing with their Hoff wing, a fried wing with a pepper buffalo sauce and smoked blue cheese. Attendees will determine who will unseat the champ. Each attendee gets their own menu handout to select their favorite delectable wing. Insiders say the best strategy is to go through the menu before and makes sure to chomp on the ones that interest you the most. You might also want to bring a hungry friend you can share 30 different unlimited wings with. If you need to cool your palette High Road Creamery will be serving up sorbet and numerous local brews will be served .
The wing showdown is expected to draw around 1,500 attendees. Tickets are on sale now! Buy your ticket early, don’t expect many to be available at the door.
