02-03-2013 Wings for the Super Bowl: Pre-order
Want wings for the Super Bowl? Of course you do! But make sure you pre-order them NOW so you don't get shut out. Here's the info:
1. Call us at (860) 747-6813 to pre-order your wings.
2. We strongly/highly/really recommend ordering our Cold Wing Pack and picking them up on Saturday. With the Cold Wing Pack, your wings will be cooked through, then chilled, with the sauce on the side. You can then re-heat them at home so you have them nice and hot whenever you prefer. We provide re-heating instructions, which are really easy.
3. If you order wings for pick up on Saturday, you can get any size you like, e.g. single (10), double (20), or a bucket of about 40. But if you want to pickup your wings on Sunday, please note: we only serve buckets of wings for take out on Super Bowl Sunday. Also, we do not serve any other items for take out on Super Bowl Sunday, just buckets of wings.
Pick up on Saturday: anything from our menu and any size order of wings.
Pick up on Sunday: buckets of wings only.
We want you to enjoy the game and enjoy our wings! This is a picture of the cars lined up last year about an hour before the game waiting to pick up wings. Avoid this by ordering our Cold Wing Pack and picking up your order on Saturday! Thank you!

Sign-up here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/38QRDXW We will let you know Friday afternoon if you've been randomly selected.
The first Beer Tasting TweetUp was great! Not only did our Twitter followers help us choose a great beer list, but it was really fun talking beer and meeting new folks. Here are a couple of pics from the first TweetUp. Yea, they're not great, but we were having too much fun talking about beer to care. That's our Bar/Beer Manager Rino who, along with Jon Stack, led the discussion about beer.
Tasting beer, talking about beer with fellow beer lovers, and eating wings. Not a bad way to spend a Monday night.

04-02-2012 Call Ahead Seating Discontinued
After many internal discussions, and significant feedback from our guests, we have decided to discontinue our call-ahead seating policy. We experimented with this policy in order to improve service and convenience for our guests. Unfortunately, we have found that while in theory it was a good idea, in practice it was - more often than not - a frustrating experience for guests.
We will be seating on a first-come, first-served basis from this time forward (and will continue to take reservations for groups of 6 or more). We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we believe this is the best way to service our guests. Thank you for your continued patronage.
