Wing/Drink Pairings

Tommy, October 18 2021

While filming a Wingaddicts episode at GG’s Pizza in Milford, owner George Pastorok emerged from the bar with two ice cold glasses of lemonade. “I want you guys to try these,” he said in what seemed like a strange request at the time. “I’ve always wondered what drinks pair well with wings.”

HOT SHOTS ONLY!

Tommy, September 30 2021

So, you think you’re a hot shot? Are you one of those heat lovers who asks for the hottest wings wherever you go? That used to be me back in my twenties but, just like with the concept of chugging alcohol, experience has brought me wisdom. Even when I am compelled to “try” some hot wings, I do so with the full understanding of the merciless torture...

Wing Prices!

Tommy, September 20 2021

So, in case nobody’s noticed, wing prices are soaring. It’s not your fault, it’s not the Wingaddicts’ fault, and it’s certainly not the restaurant owners’ fault. Without getting into the minutia, there's a long ripple effect of events stemming from the covid shutdown in our country that have left restaurant owners with three choices (all bad). They...

Casey Dohme and his boys from The Blind Rhino took home four trophies from the US National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, NY this weekend. "It was crazy," Casey explained.

The Missing (W)ingredient

Tommy, August 31 2021

In this wonderful world of wings, we’re constantly discovering new flavors and new cooking techniques. We tend to go back and revisit our favorite restaurants who do it the best and, every once and a while, we’ll fire up some of the homemade variety. In the Wingaddicts Community on Facebook, I’m impressed and quite often mystified by some of the am...

THE Best Smoked Wings

Tommy, August 23 2021

“Who has the best wings?” It’s a question we get every single day when we meet new Wingaddicts. “It’s an impossible question to answer,” is the only way to honestly reply. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Or the “wing-holder” in this case. Stay with me . . . In addition to the fact that there are different sizes of wings and hundreds of...

Tommy, July 18 2021

PIZZA JOINT WINGS!

Tommy, July 13 2021

When I’m in the mood for a good pizza, I will do one of two things. I’ll either get some dough and some toppings and make one homemade, or (in 75% of the cases) I’ll either visit or order takeout from a pizza place. I’ve never ordered pizza from a Chinese restaurant, a Mexican place, a deli, or a barbecue joint. Never.

Tommy, July 5 2021

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20 years, you’ve heard the name Joey Chestnut. No, he’s not a mob boss but he’s a BOSS nonetheless. Yesterday, on July 4, Chestnut won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Championship on Coney Island, NY for the 14th time in the last 15 years. Wasn’t even close. Chestnut set a new World Record by eating 7...
