The inaugural A.C. Weekly Wing Wars kicked off Saturday, Jan. 28, at Haven Nightclub at Golden Nugget Atlantic City to much success. The sold-out event featured 14 Atlantic and Cape May county restaurants showcasing the best of the best wings and dipping sauces that they offered. Everything from quail wings to birch beer sauce was there for the tasting.
Additionally, guests were treated to party music by Mystery Machine and drink specials, with the added responsibility of voting for their favorite wings and sauce.
A.C. Weekly's own Fat Boys — Scott Cronick and Ryan Loughlin — also chose their favorites in very "Fat Boy"-specific categories.
