A lip smackin’ good time for all starts on September 22nd in the Big Easy
“Careful, that’s hot! Let it cool off before you eat it.”
That is the advice of Malana Joseph Mitchell, vice-president of public relations for the Spears Group. Mitchell’s company puts on the upcoming National Fried Chicken Festival presented by Raising Cane’s in New Orleans.
The Buffalo wing was invented by Teressa Bellissimo at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964 (54 years old? I know math, I swear). It grew in popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1977, July 29th became National Chicken Wing Day. Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982 and Hooters’ (Bazinga!) World Famous Wings came into existence in 1983.
