The Asheville Wing War was waged on Saturday, July 16 at the Garage at Biltmore. In a very packed house, 12 local restaurants put their best wings forward, vying for the favor of the five celebrity judges (including this writer) — who required a good amount of beer to soothe the heat. Or at least that’s what we told the bartender.
Wings were judged according to style: traditional buffalo-style and specialty. A first, second and third place were chosen by the judges, and the crowd got its say with the People’s Choice Award.
People’s Choice: Universal Joint
Beer was provided by Blue Point Brewery and pizza was provided by the winners of last year’s Pizza Wars: Fiore’s and Frank’s Roman Pizza. The event supported My Sister’s Place, a domestic violence advocacy group.
