It’s National Chicken Wing Day: Here’s Where To Score a Free Feast


National Chicken Wing Day was officially established as a holiday in 1977 in Buffalo, New York (no surprise there). The city that shares a name with this versatile snack, meal, appetizer or side dish to your favorite adult beverage is also the birthplace of chicken wings — although there is some dispute over the first person to serve up the tasty treat, according to Buffalo Wings & Rings, a nationwide franchise spanning from California to South Florida.

Wings & Rings also encourages wing-lovers to become a Buffalo Sauciety Member and gain access to $10 rewards for every 100 points earned ($1 = 1 point), plus a free starter for signing up.

Wings & Rings isn’t the only restaurant serving up special deals on Thursday, July 29, which is National Chicken Wing Day.
