Press Release

From Lush Life Productions:

Asheville, NC, February 18, 2014 – Lush Life Productions is once again preparing for an event in which local restaurants in Asheville battle it out for the title of “Asheville’s Best Buffalo Wings”. With a ticket that includes unlimited wings, beer and great local music, this event has sold out in the past and is sure to sell out again.

To date, the following restaurants have agreed to put their wings to the test and remaining 3 spots are still up for grabs:

The Bier Garden
