Nashville Predators Plan Hot Wing Faceoff



If I didn't know better, I'd think the Nashville Predators were trying to make me fat. First there was their really successful beer festival last month, and now they're practically begging me to binge on all-you-can-eat chicken wings. As a season ticketholder, I'm not sure that the folks in my adjacent seats would appreciate my expanding frame impinging into their personal space, but thems the breaks.

On Saturday, July 29, the Predators are holding their first ever Hot Wing Faceoff, where eight local restaurants will compete for the title of wing king. The event, which benefits Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee, will feature fiery fowl from: Bolton's Hot Chicken and Fish; Brother Z's Wang Shack; Corner Pub; Crow's Nest; Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken; Mineo's Wings, Pizza & Raw Bar; Sam's Sports Bar; and Smokin' Thighs.

Your $35 admission grants you all the wings you can snarf up from the participating restaurants and a vote for the best wings in town. You'll also get a ticket to a future Preds game plus the opportunity to enjoy live music and entertainment, cornhole games and a silent auction. Since man can't live by wings alone (or so they say), concessions will also be on sale at the event, with fountain drinks for $2, plus $4 beers. Buy your tickets at the event website.

So let's do a little handicapping in advance. Who ya' got as a winner from all those competitors? Who do you think got left out in the battle for wing supremacy?
